Sept. 1, 2001 – Here's some of the locally produced and hosted special-interest radio programing available in coming days in the Virgin Islands. Don't see your faves on the waves? Let them know about this free listing feature, updated weekly! Details on how to get listed can be found in the editor's note below.
WIUJ Radio (non-commercial station) – 102.9 FM, St. Thomas
"Sunday Classics with Charlene," Sunday, Sept. 2, noon-1 p.m. — Charlene scoured the record shops of Alaska on a recent visit and brought back some new classical music CDs to play for her listeners. This Sunday's program will include the Beethoven Septet Op. 20, as performed by members of the New Vienna Octet. Violin, viola, clarinet, french horn, bassoon, cello and double bass combine for magical music in the style of Mozart and Haydn. Listeners will hear how Beethoven himself felt about this most popular work, too.
"The Doug Lewis Show," Sunday, Sept. 2, 1-3 p.m. — Doug will celebrate the birthdays of Rosalind Ashford (of Martha and the Vandellas) and Mik Kaminski (of the Electric Light Orchestra) and retro-visit the Amnesty International Human Rights Tour which began on this date in 1988 featuring Bruce Springsteen, Sting and Tracy Chapman, among others. He'll also look back at the Thirsty Ear Festival in Santa Fe, New Mexico, a year ago, with Alvin Youngblood Hart, Corey Harris and Joe Ely; and the Great American Music Fair of 1975, with Jefferson Airplane and New Riders of the Purple Sage. And from today's music, he'll sample an Alaska Indie Spotlight artist, singer-songwriter Robin Dale Ford.
