Welcome to Suga in My Bowl radio‘s weekly feature, On The Bandstand, where we collect upcoming NYC area shows from current and past Suga’ guests. We’re online weekly and on the air on NYC’s WBAI-FM radio alternate Sunday nights from 11 PM -1 AM. Keep up with us via Facebook, the blog here, or our main website, or Twitter and we’ll keep track of the schedule for you.
We’re off the air this week, but stop by our archives to get your fix from nearly 7 years of archived shows until next week, especially if you missed last week’s show with percussionist, guitarist and vocalist Mino Cinelu.
