I hope you can come to the concert Ginny Reilly & David Maloney will be giving at the Prallsville Mill on Saturday April 5th. For tickets, go to the Prallsville Mill Concert section of this website.
Reilly & Maloney have a vibrancy and warmth that envelopes folks hearing them for the first time as well as longtime fans. They have sung together for more than 40 years and their fine voices and magnificent harmonies remain stunning as does their choice of material. They mix a few well-known songs with great ones they have written along with others from mostly little-known songwriters. Their popularity has always been centered on their native west coast and this may be their final east coast tour. Like their previous shows at the Mill, this one should be magical and memorable.
Tonight’s Music You Can’t Hear On The Radio will be centered around new albums from John Gorka, Tony Trischka, and Lowell Levinger From The Youngbloods; and include songs about the Olympics, Chryslers and other less-timely topics. WPRB 103.3 and WPRB.com. I hope you can tune in.
I realize I did my first show on WPRB almost exactly 40 years ago. It was early on a Monday morning in February 1974 that I turned on the station at 6:00 and started the turntable where I had cued up Pete Seeger singing, “Oh, Had I A Golden Thread.” And that’s how I’ll begin this Sunday in a show that will be a three-hour tribute to Pete. (Not that I knew him, but Seeger or Mr. Seeger sounds too formal.) The only challenge will be narrowing the amazing depth and variety of recorded music he left behind to just three hours. The only difference from 1974 is that there may have been more people listening then – even at 6:00 am – than there will be this Sunday during the Super Bowl but I’m pretty sure those of us who are listening will find it enjoyable and interesting, if also somewhat bittersweet.

"among Philly's best and most unusual radio programs"
Music You Can't Hear On The Radio was begun by John Weingart in February 1974 to weave folk music, string band music, bluegrass blues, humor, the Grateful Dead and occasional news clippings and readings into a whole that aims to be, as often as possible, bigger than the sum of its parts. The program usually includes a mix of CDs and LPs each often linked to the ones that came before and follow after in a way intended to evoke interest, amusement, surprise, profound educational experiences, bewilderment, or other forms of active engagement. The opening song and other parts of the program may refer to particularly current news or seasonal events.
Every Sunday evening, for a few minutes usually sometime between 8:45 and 9:15 pm, the program includes a reading of selected concerts in the central New Jersey, Bucks County and Philadelphia area. These events and many more are maintained on a list available at the Concert Calendar page. To have other events noted on the list, please e-mail a barebones version of the relevant information.
