Boomers Paradise

From The Turtle Man

The dog days of August will be upon us so it's a good time to relax and chill out to music. This month on Boomer's Paradise (Mondays 1-4 PM) we'll feature tracks from albums released in August 1971. We'll dabble in songs about dreams. Other musical themes include song titles about fire, ice, water, earth and sky. Love will also be featured and some rock tunes featuring the sitar. If time allows we'll showcase the music of Steve Winwood, The Steve Miller Band and musical groups with notable vocal harmonies. Tune in and tune out.

Mondays 1-4pm

If you are up with the baby, working the line, driving a truck, pulling an all nighter, on your way to the gym or you just like staying up all night like we do, tune in to the All Night Show with Gus T every Friday from 3 to 6 AM on WWUH 91.3 or wwuh.org. If for some reason you choose to keep normal hours, you can also hear us on the archives.
We take a root and branch approach to Americana and you are likely to hear folk, blues, old country and honky-tonk, no depression, jazz, roots rock, singer/songwriter, lo-fi, hi fi, bluegrass and every other cool thing we can think of. It’s our music: old and new, loud and mellow, foreign and domestic. Thanks for allowing us to help you with the soundtrack to your Friday morning.
