This weekend’s Best of Bluegrass show, broadcast on WMAK from Owensboro, KY, will feature a live, in-stdio performance by The Del McCoury Band. Hosted weekly on Saturday afternoon by Bob Mitchell, the program is also streamed online at www.1013hankfm.com from 4:00-6:00 p.m. (EST).
Del visited the WFPK studio in Louisville on January 10, where he and the band played several selections from their Grammy Award-winning album, The Streets of Baltimore. Mitchell tells us that in addition to the hour-long concert before a studio audience, Del spoke about his early days living in Baltimore, and the first time he met Bill Monroe as a young man.
The show will air Saturday (2/1) on WMAK, and again on Tuesday (2/1) on The Bluegrass Mix online, from 10:00 a.m. to noon (CST). Folks in the Owensboro area can hear it Saturday morning from 6:op-8:00 a.m. (local time) on WKWC FM 90.3, but that signal is not streamed.
Bob also shared a couple of photos from the Del sessions.
