Our very own Folklorist David Brose has been doing a show on one of our local radio stations that I think you should know about.

On WLSB 1400 AM and WYHG 770 AM  on Saturdays from noon to 2 pm, David presents a 2 hour show called “The Mountain Valley Homecoming” that features 18 years of live recordings from the Folk School – from Friday night concerts, Monday nights with David Brose, Fall Festivals, and anything in between. Wow! This is the real stuff, folks. Tune in!

If you can’t get it on your radio, you can stream it live on www.wyhgradio.com. (click on the Listen Live icon at the top right)

And, beginning this Sunday, February 14, David is beginning a new show called “Stax of Wax” (wax being the old radio DJ slang term for 33 1/3 record albums). This show will air weekly on Sundays on 95.1FM from 7-9:00 pm. The format for this show will be jazz, blues, rock, Americana, Roots music – pretty much everything and anything (except for opera, apparently).

David gave us a preview of his upcoming Valentine’s Day “Stax of Wax” show. He says, “By the by, if you are a baby boomer you will love my Valentines Show–love songs by: Van Morrison, Temptations, Jerry Lee Lewis, Chuck Berry, The Stones, The Band, B.B. King, and many more favorites.” You can listen to this station online, too, if you’re not local: www.951.fm.

Even though I’m not a baby boomer, I think I’ll love it too. And David says he’ll talk about upcoming Folk School happenings, so that makes the listening even better. Congratulations, David – it sounds to me like you’re Singing Behind the Plow! I’ll be tuning in this weekend!
