Magic Records with CalZone!

I've got a 'thing' for off-beat pop, rock, soul, jazz, R&B, C&W, EZ listening, and all the sub-genres...primarily from the 1950's-80's.  I smoosh it all together and that's Magic Records.  If you don't like what you're hearing, wait 5 minutes.  Currently my show is scheduled on Wednesdays from 8pm-9pm. A SOLID HOUR OF RADIO POWER! I also sometimes do pop-up fill-in's.  Check out my mixcloud page for the back story!

  • Magic Records WAYO 5 8 2024 Songs We Taught The Lemon Twigs! Aired: Wednesday, May 8, 2024
    Celebrating the brand new Lemon Twigs LP "A Dream Is All We Know" on Captured Tracks Records.
