For two years, lawyer Bob Hust and writer/editor Bill Thompson have delivered Americana, Roots, Blues, AltCountry music and whatever else the feel like playing on Blue Snakes & Banjos at all-volunteer radio station WAIF (88.3FM). Former colleagues from the hosts’ time at the Cincinnati Enquirer also drop by occasionally to share accounts of events such as The Who concerts tragedy and the opening of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. These baby boomers aren’t stuck on nostalgia, though. Hust and Thompson constantly share new and local music, while giving authoritative opinions about what to add to your MP3 players. 6-8 p.m. Wednesdays.
