On Air

Overture
Tune in: High Low

This week onboard the Mystery Train


FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 29, 2017
3:00 PM - 5:00 PM EDT

We’ll pay tribute to Daptones recording artist Charles Bradley, who died this past Saturday.
Bradley, who was first inspired to perform after seeing James Brown at The Apollo Theater,
didn’t release his first album until 2011, when he was 62. An emotional, incendiary performer –
he will be missed.

We will also be featuring new Tori Amos, David Rawlings and Gillian Welch, Waxahatchee,
Curtis Salgado, Otis Taylor, Shelby Lynne… and the usual mosh pit of covers, deep tracks and
surprises.

WUSB Sunday Street Series Presents: Joe Crookston

Sunday, September 24th, 5 P.M. at The Long Island Museum

Making his debut appearance in WUSB’s Sunday Street Series is this much-acclaimed songwriter, guitarist, fiddler, pianist and painter whose live shows are rapidly becoming legendary as word travels through the acoustic music world. Joe’s live performances are multi-media celebrations of art and possibility with looped fiddle, video, slide guitar and songs. He’s a bard in the modern world plumbing for lyrical gold like a social archeologist.  His story songs are universal, his slide playing infectious, and on stage he’s funny as hell one moment and transcendent the next.  

Joe is also an accomplished artist and his appearance in The Sunday Street Series will be accompanied by an exhibition of some of his artwork at a 3:30 PM
