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 after WBAI’s return to the air after an attempt by a few members of the Pacifica Foundation’s national board to close the station.

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.

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 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.

We’re on hiatus this week for WBAI’s Spring Fund Drive: but will finally be back June 4! Be sure to tune in next week for the first of two shows highlighting the 2019 Vision Festival, running from June 11-16. Meanwhile, our previous show featured the return of one of WBAI’s most popular specials: “The Journey: From Africa to the New World Through Cuba, Puerto Rico, The Dominican Republic, Haiti and Beyond.” Drummer/percussionist Bobby Sanabria narrates and provides music from his vast collection for this feature that was produced and engineered by Joyce Jones. You can also keep occupied by browsing through our online archives that have a solid decade of shows!

Before we get to the rest of this week’s listings, a note that WBAI Radio’s Spring Fund Drive is in full swing. We urge you to give whatever you can and it’s particularly helpful to become a sustaining member with a monthly pledge, which we call a BAI Buddy. and gets you a few perks–including a members’ discount card useful for several places around NYC–in addition to giving the station a predictable, stable source of support. You can also pledge for your own copy of The Journey as a thank you gift for supporting the station! As always, thanks for any help you can offer.
