My project on The Music Governors Create and Inspire is now complete and available on the website of the Center On The American Governor at Rutgers University’s Eagleton Institute of Politics. The paper includes information about 30 present and former governors plus a few unsuccessful candidates with links to about 20 video clips and 10 audio recordings. Suggestions for additional material, as well as corrections, will be much appreciated.
This pre-eminent work was the subject of an excellent three-minute profile run several times last Tuesday (Election Day) on WHYY radio in Philadelphia.
A few of the songs on tonight’s program will be connected to a paper I have just written on The Music Governors Create and Inspire which is available at http://governors.rutgers.edu/usgov/documents/Music-of-the-Governors.pdf.
I will be speaking about the paper tomorrow – Monday November 4th – at the Eagleton Institute of Politics in New Brunswick. The program, which will include audio and video clips and perhaps a live song or two played on the piano by Bill Bly, is free and open to the public. For information and to pre-register go to: buff.ly/HxG17h.
Meanwhile, Music You Can’t Hear On The Radio as usual will be broadcast tonight from 7:00-10:00 pm at 103.3 FM or http://www.wprb.com/. If you can’t listen then, you can subscribe to the show in advance at http://dar.fm/.
Thank you for contributing to WPRB’s membership drive and thanks to Across The Street for their fine live performance. This Sunday, Oct 20th, Pete Labriola will be hosting the show. I will be back on Oct 27th.

"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.
