Show: “Reggae Vibrations,” Saturdays, noon
Years hosting: since 1992
Song or artist played the most: Bob Marley and the Wailers
Top 2 discs for a deserted island: If I was limited to two discs on a deserted island I’d waste away. But … Bob Marley and the Wailers, “Survival,” and Rico Rodriguez, “That Man Is Forward”
Why you enjoy hosting: I host because of a lifetime of absorbing excellent radio. I was a music sponge, from when I was little. The more you hear, the more you want to share it. You just might hear your next favorite song. Professor Bebop taught me that.
Shows: “Eclectic Woman,” Tuesdays, noon; “In the Spirit,” Sundays, 9 a.m.
Years hosting: since 1999
Song or artist played the most: Mahalia Jackson
Top 2 discs for a deserted island: “The Wild Tchoupitoulas” and Lucinda Williams, “Car Wheels on a Gravel Road”
Why you enjoy hosting: Primarily it’s about exploring and sharing with listeners who really care about music. Also, I love the creative process of putting a show together, responding to something going on in the community, the world or just in my own heart.
Show: “Nothing But the Blues,” Fridays, 9 p.m.
Years hosting: since 1994
Song or artist played the most: Muddy Waters
Top 2 discs for a deserted island: Chess Blues Boxed Set, and Sun Records: The Blues Years
Why you enjoy hosting: I’ve always loved the blues in all styles and enjoy sharing the songs and artists I’ve discovered over the years with listeners every week. If a listener hears something on my show and it leads them to discover more music by that artist or in that style, I feel my mission is accomplished.
