Mostly Singles: Mississippi Fred, Joe Venuti, Ponce Sisters
90.7-FM in NY's Upper Hudson Valley and wgxc.org/listen everywhere
Hosted by Michael Wilde.
Claverack resident Michael Wilde presents "Mostly Singles," selections from an extensive collection of 45 rpm vinyl — music from the 1950s, '60s, '70s and early '80s, mixed with some 78 rpm selections from American popular song and field recordings from the Library of Congress and folklore archives. Broadcast live from the Hudson studio.
Rebroadcast from Nov. 23, 2021. Sensational, hot, sexy and sweet -- if you liked October’s Mostly Singles, I hope you’ll love this next one: The Other Side of Last Month’s Show – where those sides are flipped, and played in that order (well, mostly). B-sides, A-sides, cuts from EPs, rare shellac and one-off 45s. More Three Keys, Mississippi Fred, Bing, Eddy, Irene, Joe Venuti … even the Ponce Sisters (something new!), along with unique sixties soul and psych. An oasis.
