Hope you'll join me for Mixed Bag today at 4. As I always say, borrowing from the Beatles, "Having been some days in preparation, a splendid time is guaranteed for all." That splendid time this afternoon will include a small programming change due to Fordham basketball—Mixed Bag will air on the radio until 4:25p.m. before switching online to accommodate the game until 6:30 (or thereabouts). After that, we're back on 90.7FM until 8.
Hope you'll join Don McGee for Mixed Bag today between 4 and 8 p.m. "Having been some days in preparation, a splendid time is guaranteed for all."
It's still Valentine's Day—sort of—on "Mixed Bag" and this afternoon at 4, love songs prevail. A programming note: "Mixed Bag" will be broadcast on WFUV until 5:55pm EST and then, to make way for Fordham basketball, will stream online until 8.
Perhaps you haven’t heard, but this Sunday, February 9, is the 50th Anniversary of The Beatles’ first appearance on "The Ed Sullivan Show." Seventy-three million Americans watched that night, slightly more than will be tuned into Mixed Bag this afternoon.
As it happens, today is also the start of WFUV’s Winter Drive. If we had 73 million listeners, we could get by with a one dollar contribution from everyone. Alas, our numbers are not quite that good. Hope you can listen; hope that you’ll pledge either online or by calling 877-938-8907. Thanks!
