The Skiffle Minstrels will be the featured artists on February 24th, 2013 for WVBR's "Bound for Glory" broadcast from Anabel Taylor Hall on the campus of Cornell University 8 to 11pm. Host Phil Shapiro has seen over 1200 sunday shows and logged more than 6000 hours of airtime.
from an article by Dan Aloi:
In the beginning, the show featured local and regional performers almost exclusively. Over the years Shapiro has welcomed The Highwoods String Band, Mark Rust, The Horse Flies, Traonach, The Chicken Chokers (now The Hix) and banjo player Mac Benford's band UpSouth, as well as such nontraditional bands as Rochester's Colorblind James Experience and Watkins and the Rapiers.
Now the lineup is mostly touring acts of some renown, and the show has a worldwide listening audience online.
"The show nowadays feels very similar to what it did back then, except the caliber of the performers is now much higher," Shapiro says. "It's become a stop on a national tour."
