Say hello to some of our newest contributors. On Wednesdays at 9 am, we’ll enjoy Ray Brown’s Talkin’ Birds. The show is based in Boston, but makes regular visits to the Cape and other locations of avian interest. Expect regular contributions from Mike O’Connor of the Birdwatcher’s General Store in Orleans. Talkin’ Birds will air every Wednesday at 9 am.
You may have already heard Michael Casey and Ryan Cooke. Michael Casey hosts “Footlights,” focusing on one Broadway musical in each episode. Footlights can be heard on the 4th Sunday of every month at noon. Ryan Cooke also has an interest in soundtracks, but his focus is on the world of film. You can hear Ryan present “Reel Music” on alternating Saturday nights from 9 to midnight opposite David Cox. David’s program, “Come As You Are,” is also new to the time slot following the departure of long-time volunteer Steve Milkewicz.
Red carpets and limousines aren’t exactly our style, but we’re hosting the world premier of a feature film nonetheless. Outermost Community Radio is the subject of a film that’s been more than three years in the making. While there are many characters in our world, the main character is the station itself, of course. Get your tickets now for the release party and the first screening April 17 at the Wellfleet Harbor Actors Theater. Thanks to Alan Chebot and the whole crew at Parallax Productions. Visit the official website for the film at outermostradiothefilm.com.
BOB WEISER hosts “The Old Songs’ Home” every Monday morning at 9:30 AM
Folk and acoustic, traditional and contemporary, new songs about old subjects and old songs about current matters, singer-songwriters and anon all in the mix.
You’ll hear new releases by folks you’ve never heard of, old chestnuts from the greats, spiced with a touch of bluegrass, Celtic, Cajun, blues, and ethnic music. Songs about real people and their lives, labor and work songs, protest music, and comic relief are all included.
Bob brings his several lifetimes of experiences to the show- labor activist and metal worker, school teacher and salesman, cab driver and chef, father, farmers’ market and food coop organizer, etc.
Bob produced close to 1000 musical events- folk, bluegrass, Celtic, festivals and more- before moving to the Cape. He’s hosted folk music programs at WBRS 100.1 FM in Waltham, and the late lamented WADN (Walden 1120 AM) in Concord.
Bob has been with WOMR since 2001, and ably fills the void left by the late Jack Cullen, long the host of Monday Folk music at WOMR.< All DJs
