Tune into Pinkney Hall on Fridays from 9-10 a.m. for the following themed broadcasts.
To keep from playing the same songs over and over again, during most shows, we play some new music and music from artists with shows in Pittsburgh. In addition, during March, our song selection will be governed by the following themes:
March 7 — International Women’s Day 2014 is on March 8, so we will play songs by women artists.
March 14 — No show on the 14th! Kenny Joe will be out out of town attending the West Philadelphia Orchestra/Raya Brass Band double bill in Philadelphia.
March 21 — On the day after the vernal equinox, we’ll be playing spring songs.
March 28 — Tune in on March 28 and you’ll hear musics from Eastern Europe.
