This Is Rock ‘n’ Roll Radio # 927

We opened this week’s extravaganza with a hearty congratulations to our friends over at The Wax Museum With Ronnie Dark on the occasion of their ninth anniversary show, which aired…um. directly opposite our show. Feast or famine in this town. But The Wax Museum is one of several terrific radio shows in Syracuse and elsewhere, and we’re in favor of all ’em. We’ll just do our best to keep up! This is what we do–all of us. And this is what rock ‘n’ roll radio sounded like on a Sunday night in Syracuse this week.

This Is Rock ‘n’ Roll Radio with Dana & Carl, Sunday nights from 9 to Midnight Eastern, on the air in Syracuse on The Spark WSPJ-LP 103.3 and 93.7 FM, and on the web at

Spark Syracuse is supported by listeners like you. Tax-deductible donations are welcome at
