Time for Another Leonard Radio Special !

Post by Bob R » Sun Jul 25, 2010 10:53 pm

Hi everyone -- Next Saturday night, July 31, I'll be hosting another 3 hour radio special on Leonard ! We did one a little over a year ago, and had such a good time that with Leonard heading back on the road, felt the time was right to do another one !

My show is called Mystery Train, broadcasting from Maine USA, and can be heard anywhere in the world by logging onto http://www.wjzf.org --Saturday night, July 31 9:00-Midnight EST
(RE-BROADCASTS Monday Aug 2 9:00-Midnight & Wed morning Aug 4 midnight - 3:00am EST )

We'll be playing all the Leonard you know and love, plus the obscure Leonard, and the unreleased Leonard. 3 full hours of Leonard.

We'll be taking requests that night, of course, but if you have anything in advance, be sure to email me at mysterytrainradio@yahoo.com and I'll make sure to include it in the show.

We'd love for as many Leonard fans to tune in that night. Its a celebration of the man and his music. Its going to be a lot of fun ! Last time, we had so many great people tuning in, with great requests--
Next to actually seeing Leonard in concert, what better way to spend a Saturday night ??

Hope you can join us ! Cheers !

Hi BobR,

Thank you for letting us know about your Leonard Radio Special. I will certainly be listening to it. It is a great idea to do this for his fans. What a treat. :D

This is so fantastic that you'll be doing it again - I did enjoy it last year. Would that I could this year, but something with the name Sligo prevents me from tuning in again ;-) :lol:
Hope all goes well again,

Too bad that I'm living on such a different timezone! Though I did just tune in and heard "You are my sunshine, my only sunshine. You make me happy when skies are grey". Is it a Pete Seeger song? What's the songs name?

This program will be re-broadcast on Wednesday MORNING, August 4th from midnight to 3 am ET.
I believe that should be more compatible with your time zone. Is that 7 am to 10 am in Finland?

I highly recommend this LC program. I heard the first one in April, 2009 and it was outstanding.

Great show. Listened all 3 hours despite the different time zone. I think I will listen to the re-broadcast again, because there were several songs I had never heard before. I wish I could have a recording from the show. I would love that.

I would suggest emailing Bob R - info at the top of this thread.
Last time, when I enquired, the station manager suggested a nominal donation to the non profit radio station to cover costs. They mailed me three CD's, one hour each. It was well worth it.

Tonight's program was really great. And if you listen closely from 2:12:27 through 2:19:05 you will hear a familiar name mentioned. :D

EDIT: Just noticed, both of you are from arcoss the pond. Try emailing them anyway and see what happens. If they can't ship it overseas because of international gobbledygoop, let me know and I will see what I can do for you from this end.
