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.

This week’s show features a documentary special from Joyce Jones on the late Abbey Lincoln. You can get a copy of the 2 CD set for a $35 pledge to WBAI which includes a year’s station membership by calling 516-620-3602 (preferably while we’re on air) or pledging online. You can pledge as little as $5 or consider a monthly donation which gets you station membership as a WBAI Buddy with additional benefits. We also still have a few autographed copies of Jon Else’s True South book on filmmaker Henry Hampton’s struggle to get the monumental Eyes on the Prize series on TV as a thank you gift at the $35 pledge level which includes a year’s station membership along with the book. Thanks for whatever help you can offer the station!
