Did you know that our Friday 4-6pm radio show on 88.3 WQNA FM is still a thing? Of course it is! We may have changed the name to “The Dumb Records Radio Show” or “The Dumb Records Radio Hour” or… “Dumb Radio”, we aren’t quite sure yet. Today we are having a special episode focusing on local hip hop featuring Ken No who hosts Hip Hop Hump Day on 88.3 from 11:00 pm to 2:00 am late Wednesday nights. Ken picked out a few records at our new shop that we’ll be playing as well as plenty of local hip hop and we’ll be talking about plenty of things.
You can tune in today and every Friday from 4:00 to 6:00 pm on 88.3 WQNA fm or online that same time at wqna.net. We are working on updating our radio show page with downloadable episodes of the past.
Tonight we are announcing to all of you in our lovely city that we are truly blessed to be able to have our dear mayor, Jim Langfelder on as guest on our radio program, The Black Sheep Radio Show this upcoming Friday. The show airs Friday (and every Friday) from 4:00 to 6:00 pm on 88.3 fm WQNA. You can stream online during that same time at wqna.net. We have been told that Jim is a record collector himself and will be bringing in a few of his favorite records from his own collection for us to play on air. If we are lucky we will also be calling up The Shadows of Knight to do a quick interview, a garage rock band which started in 1965 playing at Black Sheep on Saturday.
Recently Dumb Records made the newspapers again in the SJ-R with an article linking us to mayor Jim Langfelder “Dumb Records Uses Mayor Langfelder’s Likeness In Web Ad”. Check that out right here. The article talked about a recent video ad the store launched with a talking photograph of Jim Langfelder promoting the business. There may have been a few other videos that have popped up between now and when the article came out.
(Above photo of Jim is when he appeared for an interview on WUIS / NPR radio).
