Themed broadcasts: Pinkney Hall

UPDATE: We apologize for having to postpone Pinkney Hall’s Free Reed Festival. Last Friday, Kenny Joe was too sick to preside over the Free Reed Festival, or any festival, for that matter. We’ve reshcueduled it for this Friday, March 22. The next few editions of Pinkney Hall (9-10 a.m. Fridays) will have the following themes:

March 22 — The Pinkney Hall Free Reed Festival, featuring accordions, harmonicas, bandoneóns, harmoniums and perhaps other less-respected free reed instruments.

March 29 – On Good Friday, we usually play tunes involving crucifixion. We’ve run out of crucifixion songs, so on Good Friday, you will hear “automation” while we are in New York City scouring the city for new sounds so we don’t have to keep playing the same records over and over.

April 5 — On the first Friday in April, we feature songs by artists born in April.

April 12 — Are there enough good songs about murders out there for a show? Sure there are!

April 19 —  We will feature music from the English folk revival of the 1960s and 1970s.

Requests that fit these themes can be made prior to the shows by email to or during the show to the WRCT request line (412-621-9728).
