Another Brawl at the Door & CABS Joins the WLNZ Crew
Capital Area Blues Society will be holding their 14th Annual
Blues Brawl Sunday, May 21st at the
Green Door on Michigan Avenue. LCC Radio will be on-hand
to emcee the event and hand out some cool LCC Radio SWAG.
Every year at the Blues Brawl, Mid-Michigan blues bands
“duke it out” for the opportunity to represent the Lansing
area in the International Blues Challenge held in Memphis
Tennessee. BUT WAIT -- there's more...
Starting Tuesday, June 6th, the Capital Area Blues Society will be a part of the LCC Radio lineup with a new program, the CABS Blues Hour, airing 8pm Tuesday nights. LCC Radio is very excited to join forces with Lansing's longest running blues preservation groups -- welcome aboard CABS!
Get into "The Positive Vibe" with 89.7
Very soon, the reggae vibe will return to LCC Radio! It was over 20 years ago, that our late friend Rootsmon Bird got that ball rolling on 89.7FM. Now Paul Vetne will bring it back starting Sunday, June 4th with The Positive Vibe Sound System, featuring a mix of Reggae, Ska, RockSteady, Dub, Latin, and AfroBeat. When asked about following in Rootsmon’s footsteps, Vetne said, “Bird was a legend. I’m not looking to fill his shoes; just carry the torch lit and keep that reggae spirit alive in Lansing.” Join us for the show premiere Sunday, June 4th at 7pm.
Be a Tourist in Your Own Town
