Music Palace with John Heffernan

Tuesdays, 6:00AM to 9:00AM Eastern Time

The "Music Palace" is a mix of traditional and contemporary bluegrass with some old timey and string band tossed in. There's so much music, so little time, so I try to keep the chatter to a minimum. From 7-7:30am I visit the vinyl archives and treat the listeners to a classic LP side.Each week you'll hear a few cuts from performers celebrating their birthdays that week.

My Bluegrass roots go back to one teenage summer I spent in the hills of Kentucky, where I got an up-close look at the the people who are the true roots of this great music. I've always had an interest in music and history. I'm a past president of both the Hurdy Gurdy Folk Music Club and the Bergen County Historical Society.
