Uncle Bill’s Melting Pot, April 13, 2017
Episode 7 of Uncle Bill’s Melting Pot, a semi-clandestine musical variety program that features genres from A-Z, will air on WBCQ the Planet, 7490 KHz, Thursday, April 13 from 2300-2330 UTC (7:00pm-7:30pm EDT in the Americas). Brought to you by Tilford Productions, which also brings you From the Isle of Music.
(It isn’t showing on the WBCQ website yet, but it’ll be on.)
Uncle Bill seldom admits what he’s up to, but with both Easter and Passover coming, it’s a safe bet that there will be a least a little something related to those. Whether it will be normal or weird is what is hard to predict.
