Post updated on 2 May: WHRB kicked off its Spring 2005 Orgy® Period yesterday. Full Orgy® listings are available in both PDF and html format, and you can listen to WHRB at 95.3 FM in the Boston area or via webstream worldwide.
At WHRB, Orgies® are "marathon-style musical programs devoted to a single composer, performer, genre, or subject," ranging in length from one or two hours to a week or more.
In addition to the following programs, WHRB pays tribute this spring to Johnny Cash, Mission of Burma, Abdullah Ibrahim, John Peel, Harold Arlen, Peter Sellers… Look, just hop on over to the Orgy® listings for all the mouth-watering details.
Starting times given are EDT (UTC -4 hours), and Orgies® are often not continuous. Full disclosure: I am a proud WHRB alumna.
