Mixed Bag with Don McGee

The Beatles are Coming: This Afternoon on Mixed Bag

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!

Pete Seeger Remembered On Mixed Bag On February 1

Pete Seeger visited Pete Fornatale on "Mixed Bag" on three separate occasions throughout the years. Today on Mixed Bag, beginning at 4 today, we’ll listen to excerpts from each interview. Expect great conversation between Pete and Pete and, of course, some great music, too.

Please join me, Don McGee, with Mixed Bag between 4-8 p.m. today. A small disruption this week due to the Fordham men's basketball broadcast—we’ll be on the radio only between 4 and 6:55 p.m. As of 6:55 p.m., "Mixed Bag" will be available online only.
