Bragg's untimely passing has put me back in touch with his wife Kim who has said
that she will keep on keepin' on with Yesterday USA Radio. It is a promise she
made to Bill sometime ago. Kim asked Steve and I to do some
"fill-in" shows for her to use when a volunteer DJ can't get their
show in on time. These have turned into a regular spot on Yesterday USA! So, after an absence of about 18
years, The Glowing Dial is once again being heard on Yesterday USA Radio! The
first of these shows has already aired! We intend to make these shows available in The Glowing Dial
Archives after they have had their initial run on YUSA. Steve and I will keep on
making these shows for YUSA in addition to our tri-weekly podcast. It's one way of helping
her with the station. Another way is a donation, either one time or monthly. It
can be as little as $5 or as much as you can afford. It all goes to keep YUSA on
the air! Donation details are on their website along with program guides,
streaming audio and much more. Click on the banner below to visit. Please do it now!
While you're at it, send what you can to The Glowing Dial! The link is on our
main page right below the menu.
I recently found the Yesterday
USA Sunday Live Show from December 10, 1996. This is the show where the YUSA
supporters voted for what would be the station's newest show. The Glowing Dial
was in the running and won! This is an edited version of that live show with
some of the folks calling that voted for our show. I hadn't heard this in years
and it was bittersweet for me as Bill Bragg, YUSA's founder, passed away
recently. I hope you'll enjoy it. It is pretty much the beginning of The Glowing
Dial's tenure on Yesterday USA Radio.
