  1. That was a killer show!!

  2. Unicorn customers who want to get themselves in the mood for the Bluegrass Extravaganza, that will be happenin’ at the Unicorn on the afternoon of New Year’s Day 2011, should consider listening to the Wednesday night Bluegrass shows on College of Dupage public radio (90.9 FM) http://www.wdcb.org/

    Here are listings from the WDCB website for those two Wednesday-night programs:

    “Bluegrass Breakdown” Wednesday, 9 p.m.
    Dave Higgs is host of Bluegrass Breakdown on Nashville Public Radio. We’ve put together an emotionally-charged, heart-rending, paint-peeling, splinter-kicking one hour bluegrass show.

    Thematically, we’re all over the bluegrassical map, boldly covering such hot topics as broken things in Bluegrassland, gospel train songs, and “ain’t” tunes. We also make frequent trips to the seldom seen new bluegrass CD bins, where the latest discs in bluegrassdom are examined. And, of course, being based in Nashville, we feature scintillating conversation and live music with some of the best in bluegrass. Recent guests have included The McLains, Lynn Morris & Marshall Wilborn, Crucial Smith, Tim O’Brien & Dirk Powell, and the Larry Stephenson Band. Our goal is to edify, educate, and entertain — and we leave no instrument unpicked, no song unsung, and no interview undone in our continuing effort to so.

    “Bluegrass Review” Wednesday, 7 p.m.
    The Bluegrass Review includes Bluegrass classics as well as the current wave. Commentary links the songs together by reflecting on artists’ styles, song lyrics, or Bluegrass history, as appropriate to the selections. The Bluegrass Review is a music show that includes produced segments and in-depth interviews that adds insiders’ knowledge about Bluegrass music. The Bluegrass Review provides rich contexts for Bluegrass because Bluegrass fans are passionate about key Bluegrass figures and knowing about the evolution of the style. The Bluegrass Review creates several narrative threads throughout a given broadcast. The focus shifts several times during a program, so that there is plenty of variety. Phil Nussbaum is your host.
