Night on the town in the City

Biotic is in NYC tonight. I expect to sniff out some music. I'll let you know Saturday night if I find any I feel is worthy of our WBCR listening audience. Right now, I can tell you that Nina Simone will be a featured artist. Please drop a comment if there is something you want to hear...or if you are not in the listening area, let me know what you would want to hear on a saturday night in the beautiful Berkshire hills of Massachusetts.

Black Sweater, White Cat: The 2005, East Coast Version Debuts Saturday Night

Saturday night from 9 til Midnight---Black Sweater, White Cat debuts on WBCR-LP, 97.7, Great Barrington, Massachusetts. Hi, I'm Biotic and host. Black Sweater is a radio program/concept that I have been pursuing in different venues for almost 20 years. This is the first time I've had the pleasure of bringing it to the East. The program was born at a little station known as KUGS in Bellingham, Washington.

The East coast version is launching with a focus on geographical diversity (music from six continents) and musical diversity (a little treble, bass, and drums). Look for music from Bulgaria, the Middle East, Africa, the Caribbean, Western Europe and North America...Folk music--all of it. After all, folk music is music made by folks, right???

Each program will have featured artists. Look to your right for links to more information on this week's artists.

Thanks for listening, bye.
