Mike Hosting Radio Show

I’ve long enjoyed attending shows at the Big Top Chautauqua.  In fact, in Truck I wrote several pages about a Greg Brown show my wife and I saw at the Big Top.

Many of the Big Top shows are recorded for rebroadcast on Tent Show Radio.  Beginning with the show scheduled for January 1, I’ve been given the opportunity to host the series.  Between the live music of the Blue Canvas Orchestra and guests ranging from Joan Baez to Willie Nelson, I’ll share my thoughts on things like cheap cereal, Cheesehead Spanglish, and the smell of tromped grass.  I’ll also provide strikingly original comments along the lines of: “Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome [insert music star name here].”

We’ve recorded the first three, with a bunch more to go.  It’s been fun so far, and we hope you’ll like what you hear.  A list of the 55 or so stations that carry Tent Show Radio can be found here.
