From the Other Side of the Mirror
Moderators: John Turner
164 Postings

Mondays, 9:00 - 10:00 a.m. Show ended April 2013

Host: John Turner

Each week this show will focus on a song, producer, label, artist(s), venue, etc. that has a major influence on music, their fingerprints are everywhere, but are forgotten or under most people's radar. I will help listeners connect the musical dots. Like a documentary for your ears if you will. A show about the unsung heroes of music.
