Listen live from 7:00-10:00 pm on WPRB 103.3 FM or WPRB.com or set your computer to record the show at DAR.FM.
This Sunday, about 8:00 pm my guest on the show will be Peter Myers, a singer-songwriter from Manasquan, NJ with a new album I have been enjoying. Learn more about him at http://www.peterqmyers.com/.
I have written before about DAR.FM (http://dar.fm/), the amazing essentially free service that lets you regularly record Music You Can’t Hear On The Radio and thousands (at least hundreds) of other radio shows. They refer to themselves as “DVR for radio” which is exactly right and much clearer than my reference to what they provide as “almost podcasting.”
Here’s a sample of what their recording sounds like from the start of last week’s show: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_ZIT3MsdK5I.
Finally, in recent years – that is, starting in 1990 – I have been taking the summers off from the radio. This year, my first Sunday away will be June 23rd and I will return right after Labor Day. Back by popular demand to host the show over those 12 weeks will be Andy Blue, Pete Labriola and Frank Todd. (I’ll also be away on June 2nd but back for the 9th and 16th.

"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.
