“Ripper’s Rarities”, Friday, Dec. 9th, 7-9 p.m. Eastern
Community Radio WSLR 96.5 FM, Sarasota
WBPV Bradenton LPFM 100.1

Join me, Mark Binder, Friday, Dec. 9th, 7-9 p.m. Eastern, when I sub on “Ripper’s
Rarities”, for The Ripper, Russ Yodice…

When I cover another programmer’s show, I kinda operate in several different ways:
sometimes I broadcast sets from live performances at our adjacent, 130-seat “listening
room”, Fogartyville; sometimes live sets from “today in history”; or sometimes on a whim
that strikes me…

Then again, the programmer might say, “play Grateful Dead”. I always respond that I
already have a show wherein I play the Grateful Dead, and haven’t up until. And
technically, I still haven’t, because the first hour is The Dead backing up Joan Baez and
Bob Dylan, the third half hour being Phil Lesh, Bob Weir and Warren Haynes(billed as
“The Dead Trio”), and the last half hour being David Gans(host of radio’s syndicated
“Official Grateful Dead Hour” and Sirius Radio’s “The Golden Road To Unlimited
Devotion”), sitting in with The Electricians, two of whom are Tampa residents who have
played the greater Tampa/Sarasota area for many years, along with two friends from other
parts of the country, and so get to perform together very infrequently:
