Begins Feb.11, 2018
Do you love music played by real people? Are you looking for an alternative to the world's electronic noise? Then join us Sundays on WSDL, 90.7 for an evening you'll be sure to enjoy.
At 4PM, we bring you NPR's venerable Thistle & Shamrock. Host Fiona Ritchie explores the Celtic musical traditions of Europe and North America.
Next, catch up with current events with Michelle Martin and All Things Considered Weekend at 5PM.
The Woodsongs Old Time Radio Hour begins at 6PM. Woodsongs is a revival of the musical variety show with Americana music and conversations from guests as diverse as Brandi Carlile, Judy Collins, Neko Case, Jacob Dylan, Norah Jones, Peter Yarrow, and more. As host Michael Jonathan says each week, "You don't have to be famous to be on Woodsongs, you just have to be good."
If you like Woodsongs, you'll love Steve Martin's Unreal Bluegrass at 7PM. Unreal Bluegrass is not your standard bluegrass radio program. With an eye toward art, musical history and the understanding that the genre is gradually evolving under our noses, the show explores a wide range of musical styles, from the traditional and old-timey strains of Ralph Stanley and Bill Monroe to the more mainstream rhythms of Rhonda Vincent and Alison Brown, and the more innovative and modern work of artists like Jerry Douglas, Bela Fleck and Noam Pikelny.
Stick around for the fascinating International Americana Music Show at 10PM. Michael Park brings you an hour of folk, bluegrass, and other Americana music- but there's a catch! All the features artists are not Americans. You'll hear artists from Norway, Belgium, Australia, Germany and beyond.
Gerry Garcia had his roots in bluegrass music, so it's only natural that our Sunday evening lineup concludes with David Gans' Grateful Dead Hour at 11PM. It's a weekly audio postcard from America's best-loved band. Don't miss it!
