WANT TO KNOW A GREAT BENEFIT OF BEING A WRITER FOR RANDOMVILLE? OTHER THAN GETTING TO OUT-COKE CHARLIE SHEEN AND GETTING PAID MILLIONS A YEAR TO WRITE FOR US, YOU EVEN GET TO PLUG YOUR ART! DID YOU KNOW THAT OUR NEW WRITER JEREMY MARTIN HAS HIS OWN RADIO SHOW?
The Heritage Hour on Kalamazoo, MI’s WIDR 89.1FM explores the various forms of music that have created a unique and distinctly American culture. Each week from 1-3pm Est (10am-Noon Pacific) the program will showcase a wide swath of America’s musical geography, bringing both historical and contemporary forms of music to life. From early Appalachian mountain ballads and the songs of Stephen Foster to Contemporary folk, blues and Americana; if it was forged in the mills, reaped from the fields, or dug from the hills of this great land, The Heritage Hour will expose it and play it.
The Heritage Hour also features live in studio guests, having hosted artists from all over the country who have played exclusive sets for our listeners. Some recent in-studio performances include: Doug Keith, Putnam Smith, Rootstand, Red Tail Ring, and Mother Banjo.
And don’t forget to tune in for all of our great themed shows. Most recently, in celebration of National Train Day, the Heritage Hour had its “Train Day Spectacular” featuring two hours of stories, historical information and songs about trains. The Heritage Hour also honors America’s sporting past with its “Baseball extravaganza” each spring during Major League Baseball’s opening week.
We as Americans share an unparalleled musical legacy and The Heritage Hour prides itself in revealing the riches of the past while looking towards the bright future of American Music.
