Join us as we count down the Top Ten + Five songs based on a highly scientific poll of all the customers at the Paradise Bay Coffee Shop. Highly scientific? Well, have you ever seen an unsophisticated person at a coffee shop? We didn’t think so. Each week the results of our topical poll are sealed in a mayonnaise jar and buried behind the shop. Then, just before the show they are dug up by a Beaver Island beaver, delivered to our host(s) and presented to you.
Saturday mornings at 10:00 a.m. with an encore presentation Wednesday evenings at 7:00 p.m. on WVBI. Feed your soul and your mind.™
Join host Mark Pearson for an eclectic look back, sideways and forward at the music you love and some you’ve never heard. All kids outta the pool!! Mark mixes rare versions of your old favorites and songs that will become new favorites with the inside story on the music and audio snapshots of pop culture. It makes for a great listen, even if you are still a kid. But if you are a kid, stay off our lawn!!
Wednesday evenings at 8:00 p.m. on WVBI. Feed your soul and your mind.™
