The Show About...Wales

Mar 8, 2015

Wednesday at 9PM on WSDL, 90.7

Dust off your longbows and eat a leek. The Show About celebrates bands and singers from Wales this week. Yes, I know St. Patrick's Day is just around the corner, but The Show About thinks its high time the Welsh get their due. You'll hear Jones and Bassey of course....but also some Welsh language rock music (which I try and fail miserably to pronounce correctly).

Like this...

This week, we dare to go there....to disco land! You won't be hearing the Village People or "The Car Wash" this week, but you will hear Dr. Buzzard's Original Savannah  Band. Dust off your platform shoes, feather your hair and hit the floor.

Speaking of Dr. Buzzards Original Savanna Band...

so, please, just keep on dancin'

Every year, in the Spring and again in the Fall,  the public radio satellite system experiences what is known as a solar outage.  During a solar outage, the signal we receive can be temporarily blocked for anywhere from a few seconds to a few minutes. If we are carrying a live program (such as Here & Now), you may hear a temporary bit of silence or a short recorded message we play announcing the outage.

The next outage season should run March 3rd-6th for Maryland.

Flying saucers and little green men drop by this week on the Show About. Grab your ray gun and space go-go boots! Wednesday at 9PM on WSDL, 90.7 FM.

Here's Zager and Evan's "In the Year 2525"

If the cold snap is getting you down, warm up to some great music this weekend on Delmarva Public Radio!

Here are just a few highlights...

WSCL89.5

Friday at 6PM  Fiesta! highlights classical composers from Cuba. Pair that with the New York Philharmonic, and you have two tickets to (classical) paradise.

For no particular reason, the Show About is talking a nice long walk this week (perhaps off a short pier).

Your appertif this week is Kristy MacColl...

and a Junior Brown song, "Long Walk Back to San Antone"

The Show About...Love

Feb 10, 2015

Its not hard to come up with songs about love...so The Show About just set his phasers for "random" and came up with a  collection of love (both falling into and out of) songs, just in time for Valentine's Day!

Spotify Version

Your free samples this week are Lou Rawls (the coolest and smoothest singer ever)

This Saturday, February 14, two new programs debut on WSDL, 90.7 FM.

The Marc Steiner Show

Fashion plates unite! Put on your sharpest suit and gel that hair...it's Sophisti-pop this week on the Show About.  Sophisti-pop was a genera of late 1980's UK pop blending elements of jazz, soul, and new wave.  No grungy guitars or screaming vocals this week. Occasionally, sophisti-pop just skirted the edge of adult contemporary blandness, but when it was good, it was very, very  good.

Your teaser this week is Prefab Sprout....

Barb and Kathy, The 2 Boomer Babes, were honored to have the opportunity to interview both Chris Kyle and his wife, Taya Kyle.  With the continuing popularity of  Chris Kyle's autobiography,  "American Sniper: The Autobiography of the Most Lethal Sniper in U.S. Military History" and the recent film  based upon the book, we thought you might want you hear both of these interviews  in their entirety.

Wednesday at 9 on WSDL, 90.7

Before alternative music was alternative music, it was called "college rock", mainly because the only place you could hear it was on college campus radio stations.  The Show About this week looks at one of the many (unfortunately mostly forgotten) sub-genera of college rock...The Paisley Underground.

...or just wish you were?

Tune in every Saturday night from 10 to midnight for Stuck In the Psychedelic Era! The best in groovy, swinging 60's music.

Stuck in the Psychedelic Era is a weekly two hour radio show featuring music from roughly the years 1964-70. The show is rooted in the music generated by self-contained American bands of the late 1960s (and their British inspirations), yet is constantly expanding beyond those roots to create an eclectic blend of music unlike anything else in modern radio.

The Show About...Winter

Jan 21, 2015

Wednesday at 9 on WSDL, 90.7

It has been cold, damp, and icy lately around here...which set The Show About to thinking about songs about winter!  To whet your musical appetite...here is a little Gordon Lightfoot.

and...for a complete bit of stylistic whiplash...Aussie rockers Midnight Oil perform a song about global cooling.

Please join us this Friday Evening at 9PM on WSDL, 90.7 for a different kind of classical music...classic country music!

Tuesday, January 20th at 9PM
