Back in September of 2006, RFW was a long dreamed of project that technology finally made possible. The first Transmission (HAL 1) was heard by my immediate family, a few close friends and and a handful of advanced music fans that discovered the then new blogosphere!
Here we are in September of 2015, a time when terrestrial radio sucks, Pandora/Spotify and the other dozen or so internet music sites that come and go daily are cold and sterile and the only real entertaining music shows are compliments of a select handful of fellow musicologists that dedicate their time and money to make art!
Now let's talk about you, the Radio Free Wohlman Family. You are 430,000 + strong and you listen in 194 counties around the world. My family and friends listen occasionally (usually when I force the issue), but you listen every week because you get it - I applaud you!
I would do RFW even if I was the only one who heard it, but because of you - it has become larger than me, you or the artists (the real inspiration). Together we are bigger, better and more relevant than any corporate product designed for soulless lemmings unwilling to take chances, experiment and indulge in the kitchen-sink mentality!
This show, the month-long celebration and the next ten years are awaiting you - are you ready?
Let's jump into the cake with The Chambers Brothers, Tho Doobie Brothers, The Allman Brothers, Vernon Reid, Bauhaus, T. Rex, The Arcs, Keith Richards, Gary Clark Jr., Jimi Hendrix and Eric Clapton & Steve Winwood!
