Veterans Brian and Matt have worked each September since the mid-2000s on an Access Hour program featuring some aspect of Jimi Hendrix’s life and accomplishments and art. This year’s show again runs closely in conjunction with Jimi’s passing (Sep 18, 1970). This year Brian and Matt feature some special guests (Craig Werner and Doug Bradley) who talk about their soon-to-be-published book, “We Gotta Get Out of This Place: The Soundtrack of the Vietnam War”, as they spin some of the classic Jimi tunes that held a special place in the hearts (and ears) of Viet Nam vets.
About Access Hour
WORT turns its airwaves over to members of the community. The show opens up radio production to people that have typically not been on the air before. The show is completely different from one week to the next. Guests have included community groups, musicians, aspiring DJs, story-tellers, call-in discussions, radio plays, live bands, fans of niche music, and lots of other topics.
