Our live audiences and our listeners at home have missed the Walrus' classic rock 'n' roll as a staple of the show.
Bellingham, WA (PRWEB) October 25, 2007
After an extended break, the classic rock band Walrus returns to the Chuckanut Radio Hour in Bellingham, WA, next month as the show's house band.
The Walrus will perform several songs, including new, original rock classics from its CD, "Uncovered," during the variety-style radio show taped in front of a live audience at the Museum of Radio and Electricity Wednesday, Nov. 14. The Pacific Northwest's premiere classic rock band begins playing when the doors open at 6:30 p.m. and will be called upon to perform several other times during the show. The full radio show, a homegrown knock-off of "Prairie Home Companion," will be later broadcast on KRME, 102.3 FM.
The featured guest for the Nov. 14 taping is Nancy Horan, author of "Loving Frank," a historical novel about architect Frank Lloyd Wright. Tickets are $5 and available at Village Books.
"We're delighted to have the Walrus back on the Chuckanut Radio Hour," said Village Books founder Chuck Robinson, the show's host and executive producer. "Our live audiences and our listeners at home have missed the Walrus' classic rock 'n' roll as a staple of the show."
The band last played on a Chuckanut Radio Hour show taped in June, Due to the number of weddings and private parties the band plays, the Walrus has had scheduling conflicts with the show's taping dates since then.
The Walrus and the radio show have received critical acclaim. Earlier this year, The Seattle Times gave a positive review to the show in a major feature story, likening the Walrus sound to "the Monkees crossed with the Mamas and Papas with a dash of the Kinks."
