Let WFIT be the soundtrack to your holiday celebrations this season with our music specials! From classic Christmas music to jazz and blues to heartwarming and thought-provoking NPR stories, we've got the sounds of the season.
Tune in for a live jazz jam on Monday December 23rd at 7pm.
As a special holiday treat show host, Dave Fries will present a live set on A Taste of Jazz featuring five outstanding local musicians. The quartet will consist of the twin tenor saxophones of Dan & Dexter Wilborn with an all-star rhythm section featuring Matt Heister on guitar, the superb Acoustic Bass of Ron Pirtle anchored by the versatile Nick Chirico on drums.
As 2013 comes to an end we look back and reflect on all of our blessings.
Just over one year ago we moved into our brand new studios. In 2013 we began our partnership with Florida Today in bringing you local news coverage. In the past year WFIT became a member of FPREN, the Florida Public Radio Emergency Network which provides vital information in the case of natural disaster or emergency situations.
All of these great improvements have been made possible in part by listener contributions. Help WFIT remain a viable source of information, education and entertainment by making your tax deductible year end gift now.
We are looking forward to all of the great things WE will be able to accomplish together in 2014.
WFIT would like to thank all those involved for making last Thursday night’s Sarah Lee Guthrie and Johnny Irion Concert at Open Mike’s such a rousing success.
Special thanks go to Craig Technologies for generously sponsoring the show and to Open Mike’s (inside Florida Discount Music) for so graciously hosting the event.
You wouldn’t have known that Sarah Lee and Johnny had driven down from Washington, D.C. the night before. The homespun folk duo performed two impassioned sets, mesmerizing both the folkies and rockers in the crowd. The evening highlighted their current CD release (also available on vinyl), Wassaic Way. Produced by Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy and Pat Sansone, Wassaic Way ventures off a bit from Sarah and John’s folk roots into the territory of indie rock which is also dear to their hearts.
