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 back on the air on NYC’s WBAI-FM radio every Tuesday night from 10 PM -12 midnight. 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.

Program note: We’re pre-empted for fund raising for WBAI’s extended fall fund drive after the return to the air following an attempt by a few members of the Pacifica Foundation’s national board to close the station. The station really needs immediate support and an immediate infusion of cash to recover. Please pledge whatever you can (we suggest at least the $25 level) or become a sustaining member by signing up for a monthly pledge of $10 or more. Thanks for reading and the support over the years! -Hank
