  • Bartlemania w/ Doctor B There are many great records out there that no one knows about. There are even tracks by well-known bands that never receive airplay. Since the early 80's, I've done a program which puts emphasis on these less-well-known tracks. If I think a record has merit, I'll play it regardless of chart status (if any). I play familiar artists like Bob Dylan and Yo La Tengo as well as more obscure artists like Jah Pelikaho, Conveniens and Gone. Sometimes I'll include unreleased live material. Originating on Wednesdays on WHRW-FM Binghamton, my program now comes to you on WRFI! And if you should miss a show, please surf on over to Bartlemania.com for my latest podcasts and playlists.
