FALL SHOW THEMES
San Francisco's Haight Ashbury

SAN FRANCISCO'S HAIGHT-ASHBURY

In the 1960's and 70's San Francisco's Haight Ashbury was a neighborhood at the corner of a cultural revolution - love was free, minds were open, and the music was GREAT!  Featuring songs from such amazing and eclectic musicians as The Grateful Dead, Santana, Janis Joplin, Steve Miller Band, and so many others, the Haight Ashbury Show is gonna be a groovy time for all ages.  So don't freak out man, just boogie on down to the barrio to get rocking!

WEDNESDAYS

Nashville's Grand Ole Opry

NASHVILLE'S GRAND OLE OPRY

Nashville, Tennessee - music city, USA!  And there are few better outlets for that beautiful and uniquely American form of popular music called Country than the famous radio show broadcast every week from Nashville's Ryman Auditorium:  The Grand Ole Opry!  Featuring such classic artists as Tammy Wynette, Patsy Cline, Johnny Cash, The Everly Brother, and more - plus some newer artists like Carrie Underwood and Jeff Tweedy, this is gonna be a swinging good time!

TUESDAYS

WEDNESDAYS

DETROIT'S MOTOWN

Detroit is a working class town, full of working class people.  But it's also the home of Motown Records, one of the most influential forces in popular music in the past 100 years - not only in America, but worldwide!  The sweet harmonies, funky basslines, and so much more found in the work of Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, The Temptation, Martha Reeves, Gladys Knight, and so many others will make this sure to be a popular and great show for all!

WEDNESDAYS

Detroit's Motown

LONDON'S SWINGING ENGLAND RADIO

There's pirate radio and then there's PIRATE radio.  Swinging England was one of the most popular radio stations amongst London's youth in the 1960's!  But it wasn't broadcasting from a little studio near Big Ben - Swinging England Radio was based in a literal pirate ship off the coast!  Featuring such classic british invasion bands as The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Who, The Hollies, and more this show is gonna be a great exercise across all instruments!
