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 guest is Nana Camille Yarbrough. She has no immediate appearances, but we’ll let you know when she does.

Before we get to our listings, a quick reminder that WBAI Radio has a mini Summer Fund Drive and needs your help. Subscribing to the station as a sustaining member with a recurring small monthly pledge is particularly helpful. It’s quick and easy and you can stop payments at any time. Details are at WBAI’s pledge page. We’d especially appreciate pledges in the name of our show. None of it goes to us and we don’t get paid to be on-air; it’s for listener-supported radio in New York and streaming worldwide. Thanks in advance for any help you can give.
