Caravan with Bill Beckett

Fridays at 9pm

So Much Music - So Little Time

The Caravan is a Weekly program featuring a diverse selection of music and hosted by Bill Beckett. Each week you'll hear selections from across the globe in a mosaic designed to carry you along effortlessly. The program will feature a broad mix in hour one with certain recurring themes. 

Hour two will feature live concert material gathers from around the country and world, from locally produced concert recorded in our new studios to concert we record at venues around our listening region. We will also feature specials on a variety of musical subjects and live CD material as well.

Hour three is simply called be quiet and play the music. This hour is designed as a 52:00 minute segment of music with no breaks. A listening experience that is unique. Underneath the music is a sort of hidden theme that only Bill knows and he's not telling, so you can approach the hour and let it affect you in your own unique way. Bill will return near the end to let you know what you've heard and close out with one final song.

Tune in Friday at 9:00 p.m. for the Caravan. Bill has a vast library of music and a deep love of all genre's from Indian Raga's and Delta Blues to Classical, Jazz, Folk, Rock, Alternative, and World and more. We hope you enjoy the experience and discover new music each week as well as hear familiar favorite.
