The Sunday Tea Dance with Jooly—and, yes, that’s how she spells it. In merry old England, not so long ago, the Sunday Tea Dance at 4:00PM was a common social gathering. Jooly, an unabashed old-time radio fanatic who not only hails from England but is still in it, produces an hour-long recreation of the Tea Dance music of the 1920, 30’s, and 40’s for community radio stations in old England, and, through the miracle of modern technology, also on WYAR-FM in that newer England across the Atlantic. Lest we be accused of hyperbole in calling her “fanatic”, check out her website!: The Golden Age of Radio, and see just how apt the term is! (Sunday and, in repeat, Monday afternoons at 4:00)

The Forgotten World of the Mighty Theater Organ– or “MTO” for short. Host Davis Balestracci takes an affectionate and informative look back at a time before talking motion pictures, to when theaters and auditoriums commonly had pipe organs to provide musical accompaniment and entertainment. If you think there can’t be much to that topic, tune in and hear as he takes you through its fascinating post-talkie history of virtual extinction and gradual reemergence as a modern day unique artistry all its own. (Wednesday noon and Saturday at 5:00PM, in rotation with Banjo Perspectives). Davis welcomes feedback and questions and is happy to supply playlists, contact him at :
