Here’s how to tune in:
If you listen in and hear something that sounds current, it’s because they’re still broadcasting today’s news and weather. Stay tuned past that break and you’ll hear the 1960’s era music and DJs.
WVON-AM’s “Retro Day” will air recordings of the actual programming from the 1960s, featuring some the most legendary Chicago DJs ever, all in the prime of their careers. The station will air classic shows from such influential superstar DJs as Herb Kent, Bill “Butterball” Crane, Lucky Cordell, E. Rodney Jones, and Pervis Spann, among others. The original classic 1960s Rhythm & Blues and Chicago Soul music and many of the original commercials will air, as well.
WVON’s “Retro Day” will take place on April 1st, starting at 6:00am and running all the way until midnight. The station will still run its regular news, traffic, and weather segments to keep listeners informed, while they enjoy the audio trip back in time.

Get in early: Back this Kickstarter for Moonshine & Mojo Hands, a Mississippi blues weekly web-TV series.
If you liked We Juke Up In Here! and M For Mississippi, then you’ll want to get behind a new Kickstarter from Roger Stolle of Cat Head Delta Blues & Folk Art and Jeff Konkel of Broke & Hungry Records.
From the Kickstarter intro:
The creators of the award-winning documentaries M For Mississippi and We Juke Up in Here hope to return in 2013 with Moonshine & Mojo Hands, a new weekly web-TV series dedicated to the rude, rowdy — and often ridiculous — world of Mississippi blues. Ride shotgun with hosts Roger Stolle and Jeff Konkel as they travel the Delta’s back roads in search of juke joints, house parties, barbecue, moonshine and — of course — the men and women who keep this uniquely American music alive in the land of its birth.
With its heady mix of fascinating characters, hilarious situations, rustic settings and rousing musical performances, the series aims to appeal to both cult and mainstream fans of music, culture and history. Moonshine & Mojo Hands will combine the feel of the producers’ earlier films with that of television travelogues like American Pickers and No Reservations and web-only shows like Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee.
By showcasing such a fascinating foreign land so close to home, the show’s creators hope to inspire others to make their own road trips down Mississippi’s blue highways.
I’m in! You, too? Check out the Moonshine & Mojo Hands Kickstarter.
