Weekend Plans?

For anyone in need of early morning tuneage this coming weekend, it's my turn on the WVUD dj lazy susan to be hosting The Morning After, this Sunday, 9/05, from 9:00 'til 12:00 EST.  Hurrican Earl seems to have petered out, so no National Weather Emergency warnings will have to be issued during the show.  Simply, minimium me maximum music.

If you're not in the FM listening area, which is about a (very generous) 20 mile radius, you can always tune in via the Triple W's at WVUD Online.  The University of Delaware sponsored station is scheduled to be recieing a power boost from our current 1,000 Watts to 6,800 Watts.  Not being a radio engineer, I couldn't really explain what this means except to say that our FM listening radius will not be increased by a factor of 6.8.  It will bemore like a possible factor of 2, give or take the daily power footprint of the large stations around us.  At WVUD, we do not see ourselves as The Mouse that Roared, although some of us can do a mean Peter Sellers when pushed.

I'm still mulling over the 3 hour playlist, thinking it will tend toward the Last Hurrah of Summer format.   NRBQ, Trombone Shorty, Richard & Linda Thompson, Jimmie Vaughan, TV on the Radio, Worst Pop Band Ever, Kings Go Forth, (gotta have some!) Freddy Joe, She & Him, Charlie Hunter, some new Frisell, LaVette, Osborne and other tunes that will come waltzing in.

Drop on by and take a listen!  Usually there's something for everyone.

Addendum:  Playlist for the show has been posted here.
