Wicked Good Music Hour 1/17/15

On Saturday, January 17, 2015 at 4:00pm, the Wicked Good Music Hour featured 97-year-old musician Harry Weiss of Bangor. Mr. Weiss worked for over fifty years as a jazz band member, studio session musician, radio musician and music producer. From playing accordion and piano in night clubs to producing automobile company jingles to working with the writer of the song “Yes We Have No Bananas,” he has done it all. And he continues to play piano nearly every day. On the program Mr. Weiss shares his stories and reflections on his long career in the music industry, in a interview recorded on January 15. He is engaging, sincere and funny, and we think listeners will certainly enjoy getting to know him. And if that’s not enough, all the piano music on the program was played and recorded by Mr. Weiss in the past month. (The Wicked Good Music Hour airs every Saturday afternoon from 4:00-5:00pm and is dedicated to local, Maine and Maine-connected music, usually presenting live studio performances. The program is co-hosted by Matt Murphy and Bre Pinkham Bebb.)
