Oh What Fun . . .

. . . it is to ride, in a one-horse open sleigh.

Especially with two accordions.

Winter is still very much with us up here in the Catskills, to the tune of almost 4 feet of snow.

But your intrepid radio host will be at the station tonight spinnin’ and winnin’ with accordion classics—mostly from warmer and more hospitable climes.

And let’s face it, this is the USA–and bigger is always better. Join us tonight for that big accordion sound featuring, among others, Belton Richard, the Lost Bayou Ramblers and
La Santa Cecilia.

Accordion Olympics!

Tonight only. Mixed Siamese doubles– playing accordion and chewing gum at the same time downhill. Don’t miss it. Team USA, as always, the favorites.

And our informed commentary on: curling (breathtaking!), skiing backwards and various sliding (glissando) sports.

What do they have in common?

Bill Haley and the Comets, a zany act:

The Four Aces of Western Swing:

Certainly not the plaid suits or the cowboy hats or the accordions.  Give up?  Take a close look.

The answer is Bill Haley!

Yes, the rock and roller started his musical career as a cowboy singer, and what’s worse, a yodeler!

Join us tonight as we look at the early career of the rock and roll legend—and at his tragic demise.
