Totally was feeling that discussion of "That's What you Get" by Damhnait Doyle. Thank you Chris Wienk 👍
8-22-This Sunday, 3-4:30 PM @ The Round Lake Auditorium | Back To Bacharach And Beyond https://www.facebook.com/events/304838668090261/?ref=newsfeed
Chris Wienk do u have a link to Kyles foundation ? I tried to find it but was unable. Loved his song
Everyone should check out this new song by Jackson Pines. They're so good! Their previous album "Purgatory Road" is just fantastic! https://jacksonpines.bandcamp.com/
My discussion with Mike Garson about our after death conversations with David Bowie's spirit! https://www.facebook.com/dannon.jones.921/videos/113780407554104
Hey listening from my back yard. If you plan to play any local 518 would love to hear Hideaway by Charlotte Reilly
Best station on the air waves! Always playing a great mix! Thanks for the jams!
Hey WEXT! I'm so glad you're on. You may not realize it but a lot of songs you play by various artists were written by Rodney Crowell, a treasure in the roots and branches music biz. Ain't Living Long Like This is one of his. I wonder if you could find room in your lineup to play a few of his originals. :)
Thank you for the great music today. Enjoying the vibe in the workshop at Sand Lake Candle ✌❤ 🎶 #wext #sandlakecandle #518ny
Hello WEXT Community. I am a long time contributor and love both public television and WEXT - thanks for all the great programming and music! Here is an article I got in the paper a few weeks back that I am proud off. I would like to hear your comments on it as it deals with the Fight for equality, Black lives and the rise of White Supremacy. Thank you for your space.
On a drive — would love to hear Charlotte Reilly with the local 518
