I had a great time being interviewed by Richard Gordon aka Mando Richard on WVUD’s Tuesday Roots show. He played some music from Swinging at the Savoy, and we had a fun chat about music, and the making of the album. If you missed it, you can listen to it now on his mixcloud archive here.
From Richard’s Post: This week, Vi Wickam joins us on 91.3 WVUD’s Tuesday Roots program — 9 to 11am EDT on Tu June 23 on 91.3 FM, Newark DE, & streaming from www.wvud.org, ShoutCast & TuneIn. Vi will join us shortly after 10am.
Vi Wickam a strong fiddler in MANY different styles of music, a great teacher, and an ace collaborator. In fact, as we talked about his new record, Swingin’ at the Savoy, the music we play features his collaborators on the project: Fiddler Paul Anastasio and singer/guitarist Albanie Falletta. During our conversation, his enthusiasm for the music — and some of the reasons behind that enthusiasm — come through loud and clear. You’ll enjoy this conversation!
Long-time WVUD DJ Woody Snyder brings us a great set of music — as always. And the rest of the show has a lot of bluegrass — old (Stanley Brothers) and new (JB & Jamie Dailey, The Plate Scrapers, Amanda Cook, and others). And Larry Sparks!
As Gary Irving sez, Folk for all sorts of folks! Y’all tune in!
