Swing On This on 89.5-1
Saturdays at 7pm
- Hosted by John Wooley
Western Swing Music
Here are a couple of things you need to know about my western-swing radio program Swing on This, airing at 7 p.m. on public-radio station KWGS (89.5 FM) in Tulsa.
I start with the premise that I’ll be able to play 15 songs in the hour-long show. Sometimes I find myself with enough time to play another tune, or even two. Other times, I don’t. Very occasionally, a CD will hang up or a record skip, and I’ll have to quickly substitute something else.
Second, I’ve been known to take a kind of Zen approach from time to time, grabbing something in a fit of inspiration and sticking it in the middle of a show. I prize spontaneity as much as the next gazabo, especially when today’s commercial radio seems completely leached of it, but I promise to try and rein myself in, so that the following playlists can be as accurate as possible.
Thanks very much for listening. I welcome your comments and requests. The on-air dedications are to folks who’ve written about the show. I’m grateful to them, and to you.
