This session of the radio show shares the conversation that the “Radio Gang” had during the winter break. We took the time to look back at 2020 and ahead to 2021. We did have our conversation via conference bridge to adhere to the ‘social distancing’ requirements of this pandemic period.
The “Radio Gang” as you’ll hear in order of appearance,
- Pete Fasciano (Executive Director of Franklin TV)
- Jay Horrigan, sports announcer extraordinaire
- Jim Derick, host of Chapters, co-host of “Talking the Blues” (with Todd Monjour) and along for the ride with Franklin Falvey on “Frank’s Music” and “Music to lift the Spirit”
- Dr. Anne Bergen, host of “It Takes a Village”
- Pandora Carlucci co-facilitator with Jay Horrigan on “A Priest, a Minister and a Rabbi”
Note: A slightly shorter version of this will be aired on wfpr.fm
We are now producing this in collaboration with Franklin.TV and Franklin Public Radio (wfpr.fm).
This podcast is my public service effort for Franklin but we can't do it alone. We can always use your help.
How can you help?

"This weeks' episode focuses on piano blues. We talk about and listen to a range of blues pianists from classic originals to those that have carried on the sweet tickling of the ivory.
We bring to you legends like Otis Spann, Memphis Slim, Professor Longhair, Pinetop Perkins, James Booker, Ray Charles, Jesse Yaw, Roosevelt Sykes and Lachy Doley. Keep on Talking the Blues! "

"Stevie Ray Vaughan - October 3, 1954 - August 27, 1990. This week marks the 30th year of the passing of Stevie Ray Vaughan and the world has been at a loss since. Vaughan became a blues rock virtuoso in a short period of time and left a legacy that others have followed.
This week we focus on his music, his story and his legacy. We listen to Stevie's music as the music of some of the artists that influenced him including Jimmy Rogers, Albert Collins, Albert King and Jimi Hendrix.
There is a little bit of something for everyone. RIP Stevie - Rock on!"
