Faithful Blue Door fans may recognize the name of the show, as its the same as a program Johnson ran on KRXO-FM 107.7 that ended seven years ago. But while the host station has changed, Sakes commitment to good music has not. While the venue at 2805 N. McKinley caters almost exclusively to singer/songwriters, the radio hour is a little more wide-open.
Its in the folk, Americana, singer/songwriter world, but Im not going to hold myself to that, Johnson said. If its good music, Ill play it.
Keeping the listener guessing, eh? Theres no real genre format. I could play a hard rockin song by someone, then play George Gershwin, said Johnson. Youre getting a peek into Greg Johnsons CD collection.
In addition to playing music, the radio station features special guests performing in the studio, interviews and more. Folk artist Ray Wylie Hubbard will be featured this Sunday, in advance of his Jan. 21 and 22 shows for The Blue Doors 19th anniversary.
