Starting today, we’re bringing some changes to our Monday night offering. Juke in the Back, which previously aired at 6pm, will be replaced by an hour of music programmed by DJ Erik, and at 7pm, we’ll be trying out the eclectic two-hour show Stuck in the Psychedelic Era.
This July 4th, tune in to WWCF at 4 PM for a two-hour special episode of American Routes. Host Nick Spitzer dives into the record crates to bring you music of celebration, hope and critique from Nina Simone, Randy Newman, Sly Stone and Jon Batiste. The second hour delves into the program’s archive, featuring highlights from The American Roots Independence Day concerts at the Washington Monument on the National Mall in Washington, DC. Tune in for spectacular stage performances by the urbane blues hero Charles Brown, the Texas Playboys with Johnny Gimble playing Western swing, Mexican-American Mariachi Los Camperos de Nati Cano, Young Tuxedo Brass with New Orleans jazz, and Hawaiian music and song of slack-key guitar master Ledward Kaapana.
We’re making a few changes to our weekly broadcasts. Last week was our last airing of Acoustic Café. If you were a fan of the program, you can continue to follow Acoustic Café on their website, acafe.com. Second, the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center and Classical Guitar Alive! on Sunday evenings will be swapping timeslots. We felt this switch would create a better musical flow from early evening to late at night. Check out our Program Schedule for a full breakdown of our weekly broadcast schedule as well as complete playlists.
We’ve got lots of special programs lined up for your listening pleasure this Christmas, so be sure to tune in for an eclectic selection of holiday tunes.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year for WWCF!
