Friday on my Mind
Friday on my Mind
Fridays @ 8:00 pm
Harry Rag, Scott and Melva Sabatke, DJ el Serpentine, Bill the Walkin Dr, TED OFFENSIVE
An unpredictable collage of Popular and Unpopular music from the last 60 years, by someone who has been spinning the platters that matter on WORT for over 30 years. Focusing on the cool and crazy sounds not found on just any old (or new) radio program. If they influenced the Rock-and-Roll excitement throughout the 60's and the Punk Explosion of the 70's, or were influenced by those bygone days, the chances are good that you'll hear them here. Did I mention that the latest releases are mixed in and around all these "Old" songs? Plenty of unannounced special programs on specific artists, sub-genres, or themes-- plus the Annual Best Songs of the Year show on the third Friday in January!
