The Jewel Case: Radio

It’s 91.3 WYSO’s Fall Drive and, to celebrate, we’re spinning songs about RADIO for the duration of the show, with tracks from The Modern Lovers, Cheap Trick, Aretha Franklin, Merle Haggard, Patrice Holloway, Graham Central Station, The Ramones, R.E.M., The Selector, Hedwig & The Angry Inch, and scads more, while drumming up some financial love for the station that lets me hang out with you every Thursday night. If you dig what we get into each week, along with all the other great volunteer-hosted music shows and dependable news coverage, we encourage you to head on over to click the “Donate” button at the top of the home screen, and become a VITAL PART of the WYSO family. We’re here WITH you, FOR you, and BECAUSE of you. Thanks for your kind support, friends.
