Live DC Bluegrass Broadcast Tonight 6-8PM

Live DC Bluegrass Broadcast Tonight 6-8PM One of the best Bluegrass bands in the Washington DC area is Rockledge (Darrell Slone-Banjo; Mark Clifton-Dobro; Lynn Healey-Guitar; Bradley Sams/Bill Taylor-Bass). The band will sing and play live in the WAMU-FM studios in the Nation’s Capital on Katy Daley’s Open Mic program this evening (Friday April 3rd, 6PM to 8PM EDT), but you can hear them from anywhere on the planet through BluegrassCountry.org.

There’s more. Thanks to to a cutting-edge breakthrough in wireless radio-telephony,  people in Northern Virginia and parts of  Maryland can hear this exciting live concert free on those ordinary FM radio receivers found in many homes and motor vehicles! Astounding. Simply set the indicator on the device to 105.5 megahertz.

Both of the Bluegrass fans who actually own HD(tm) radios can hear the digitally-modified broadcast at HD 88.5-2 if they live near the transmitter.

This is a seriously awesome band. Hear Rockledge on the radio tonight and in the flesh each Wednesday at FireFlies in Alexandria’s Del Ray neighborhood.

    drtombibey asks: Is Mark Clifton related to Bill?

    Good question, Doc. I’ll find out. Mark has been a professional musician for many years. As a dobro player, he may be best known for his work with Cliff Waldron & the New Shades Of Grass.

    Dr. Tom:

    Lynn Healey says Mark is no relation to Bill Clifton (born William Marburg). Mark also plays with the Country Gentlemen Tribute Band formed by Bill Yates.
