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 has 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. I told her we'd be delighted! So, after an absence of about 18
years, The Glowing Dial will once again be heard on Yesterday USA Radio! The
first of these shows is airing on YUSA this 2 week period (8/12/19 thru
8/26/19)! Times are HERE. 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 do as
many of these "fill-in" shows as Kim needs. 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. Do it now ...
unless you're currently listening to The Glowing Dial that is ;-P
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.
