Friday April 30 at midnight on XLII90 Live Music Radio Hour, Nufone Rick ended up switching it around at the last minute. Tony Markellis, bassist for Phish frontman Trey Anastasio‘s Band and the David Bromberg Band died earlier that day and in memory he did a show focusing on Tony’s work in Trey’s band. WORT’s music hosts are famed for doing great memorial tributes and this one’s no exception, so be sure to check it out on our archives.

Peter Haney, host of Back Porch Serenade on Tuesday mornings said of his April 27 program, “I thought the U.S.’s recognition of the Armanian genocide was a good opportunity to sample music by Armenian and Armenian American composers.” The show includes the music of Alan Hovhaness, Aram Khachaturian, Arno Babadjanian, Loris Chobanian, and Eve Beglarian.
