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 used to be 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.

This week we start with an editorial announcement. We’re off the air for the time being because WBAI Radio has had its local programming terminated by it’s owner, the Pacifica Foundation, which cited the station’s financial losses as a reason for firing all the staff. You can read more from Gothamist, the Amsterdam News and the Indypendent. We found out today along with everyone else. For now, I’ll point you to our archives with a decade of shows to stream. I’ll also still be doing weekly online Bandstand updates for the time being and will keep an eye on hits. If there’s interest, I’ll keep compiling listings and we’ll try to get back to event coverage. Thanks for reading and the interest over the years! -Hank

This week’s show on October 1 features the return of one of our specials: “The Brazilian Journey” for WBAI’s Fall Fund Drive. Educator Dr. Judith King-Calnek narrates and leads listeners on a musical journey through Brazil for this feature that was produced and engineered by Joyce Jones. We did a brief Q&A with Dr. King-Calnek that you can read here.

Before we get to the rest of this week’s listings, a note that WBAI Radio’s Fall 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 Brazilian Journey as a thank you gift for supporting the station with a $50 donation! As always, thanks for any help you can offer.

We end this week with celebration and sorrow. Guitarist Mary Halvorson was named as a 2019 MacArthur Foundation Fellow! On the other end, pianist Harold Mabern died on September 19, 2019. WBGO’s Nate Chinen’s obituary is worth a read. I’ll miss collecting his gigs for the Bandstand and miss seeing him and hearing his music even more.
