WYSO

The Jewel Case

Thursday, 8-11pm

A weekly celebration of all manner of musical goodness: deep cuts, forgotten treasures, and curiosities. Plus, a new theme each show spanning all genres, eras and locales.

Ain't nobody here but us chickens. And ducks. And turkeys. And maybe a few pigeons, peacocks, and ostriches. This week's theme is FOWL PLAY- songs about all of the above and maybe even a few more. We're gonna have ourselves a fowl ball, and it won't be the same without you, so tune in, won't you?

How you doin' out there? Bearing up ok? Lots of good sounds in store this time around as we try to make the best of a weird, scary situation. Our theme this week is SOCIAL DISTANCING- we'll be spinning songs about staying in and keeping to one's self with tracks from Chet Baker to the Statler Brothers to Etta James to Bad Brains, and much more. "Alone" doesn't have to mean "lonely", you know. Let's all be alone together.

All aboard the Night Train. This very night we embark upon a WHIRLWIND TOUR. We'll be taking a look at songs that list cities and places, of which there a LOT: Animaniacs to Zeppelin, and many, many in between. We'll be logging some serious miles, and you don't even have to leave your chair. Unless you want to dance, that is.

This week we're taking a musical look at HEAVEN & HELL, with an hour given to each realm (in the interest of fair time). Nina Simone, Rodrigo Y Gabriela, the Meat Puppets and many more will be your tour guides, so dress in layers and, uh...let's stick togethe, OK? It'll be a wild ride.

Ay la bas! With Mardi Gras right around the corner, we're heading to the Crescent City for this week's theme. New Orleans is probably the most music-drenched city in the world, and we'll be celebrating its rich heritage with tracks from everyone from Sidney Bechet to Fats Domino to Irma Thomas to Mystikal and most points in between. Mr. Toussaint will be a recurring figure, to be sure. Bake yourself a king cake, push back the sofa, and roll up the rug- it's gonna be a dance party. 

This week's show is for you super geniuses out there. The theme is "WHADDYA KNOW?": we'll be spinning tunes about knowledge (and/or the lack of it) from Prince Buster, Fats Waller, Young MC, Amy Winehouse, Ozzy, and a whole mess of others, so put on your thinking caps.

This week's theme is JUNIORS; we're spinning tunes both BY various Juniors (Sammy, Harry, Gary, Dinosaur, Kimbrough, Brown, Byles) and a few ABOUT them, as well. It'll be a fun one.  See you on the radio, friends!

In these uncertain times it's easy to forget how much we have to be thankful for and so, in that spirit, we present this week's theme: GRATITUDE. We'll be spinning songs about giving thanks from Otis Redding, Sarah Vaughan, Ty Segal, Bad Brains, Rare Earth...TONS of others, too. So put some gratitude in your attitude, and thank you kindly.

Are you ready, boots? This week's theme is COMEUPPANCE: we'll be spinning two hours of songs about payback, karma, consequences, and repercussions. This one's been marinating in my noggin for a good long time, friends, and it's going to be quite a ride: Hank Williams, Peter Tosh, Black Flag, Champion Jack Dupree, Julie London...even Ms. Sinatra here will be on hand to dish out the musical medicine. Start walkin'!

We've got some bones to pick with you as we examine tunes about BONES. Just giving the playlist a quick once-over, we're seeing the New Pornographers, Laurel Aitken, Fats Navarro, Dead Meadow...you don't have to be a doctor to know this is gonna be fun. Let's get skeletal.
