Our music hosts have some very tasty theme shows for you tonight! From Bill Clark: Almost forgot! Tonight on Dave Watts‘ Blues Cruise I’ll be making the fourth stop on my tour of Cities which are Homes of the Blues – Los Angeles. I hope you’ll tune in from 6 to 8 pm at 89.9 on your dial in the Madison area or at wortfm.org on the internet. All broadcasts are archived for two weeks on the station website. Just think of it! T-Bone Walker, Pee Wee Crayton, Johnny “Guitar” Watson, Percy Mayfield, and Ray Charles!!! What more could be fairer.
…and from Bill Sievert: This Friday, Jan. 4th at 8 pm on WORT, 89.9-FM Madison, Bill The Walkin’ Dr. will attempt to shoehorn all of his favorite releases from 2018 into the Beat Orgy A Go-Go program slot. This will present a modest challenge, but the Beat Orgy Desk is confident that it can, & is assured that it must, be done. In addition there will be the predictable anniversary observances of births, deaths, natural disasters, &c. Intended for airplay are Wilko Johnson, Slim Gaillard, Nina Simone, Calexico, Ry Cooder, The Dap Kings, The Scientists, Courtney Barnett, The Upsetters, FACS, The Vanishing Kids, Captain Beefheart & His Magic Band, Iggy Pop, and a host of other hep folks. Streamed & archived, the American Way.
