Big News About Little Steven
Big News for fans of Little Steven Van Zandt: WNKU-FM is picking up his "Little Steven's Underground Garage" syndicated show 2-4 p.m. Saturday. He claims to be the coolest DJ in the country -- who are we to argue? -- along with being the guitarist for Bruce Springsteen's E Street Band, an actor on "The Sopranos" (Silvio Dante), and a record producer for Springsteen, Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes, Lone Justice, Arc Angles and Gary U.S. Bonds.
The show premieres this weekend. It replaces the popular "World Cafe," which will remain on the air 3-5 p.m. Monday-Friday. (The Monday show was a repeat from Saturday).
Also this weekend, Lori Holladay -- station membership manager and former area film commission director - -will debut "Voices," a 6 a.m. Sunday show about singer-songwriters. "Acoustic Sunrise" will move to 6 a.m. Saturday, with "Folk Sampler" moving to 9 p.m. Sunday. Gone in the shuffle is "Keller's Cellar," which had aired at 9 p.m. Sunday.
