That’s all for now. Thanks to our new, expanded schedule, we now appear weekly except for the last Sunday of the month, which means that we’re off next week. Tune in to the next Suga’ in My Bowl on Sunday, December 1st on WBAI, where we’ll have another edition of “On the Bandstand”.

A reminder that WBAI radio is still in serious financial trouble. Help keep Suga’ (and all your other favorite shows) on the air by pledging whatever you can. Consider becoming a “WBAI Buddy” with a monthly pledge.
