Musical Chairs & A Little Swing

After hosting Woody & Friends every Monday morning for almost 25 years, David Guzzetti is retiring from KZFR. We wish you all the best, David & hope you'll be "celebrating life's twists and turns" in the days ahead. Thank you for all you have done for KZFR & our community!

"I started Woody & Friends more than 25 years ago when I eagerly joined the KZFR family. I was the lone programmer on the show until 2015 when I sought help due to some health concerns. I've had guests on the show often because I love the community connections of KZFR. I praise our staff & volunteers for all their work. My version of W & F is eclectic that includes a lot of traditional political folk songs as well as Americana music in the Woody Guthrie spirit. Thank you so much for the love and support that I have received in the past 25+ years," David shared, "It is one of my life thrills to have done this."

New Woody & Friends Co-Hosts - We'll miss hearing David's voice on the air but don't worry W&F will continue with Peter Ratner at the mic along with Big T & Bob. "After 15 years I've decided to stop hosting Not Necessarily Nashville. It hasn't been an easy decision, as I've enjoyed providing Saturday afternoon music to the community, as well as presenting live music and a forum for community members to inform the radio audience about upcoming events. I've loved working with my KZFR family and will continue to contribute to the station in a reduced capacity by co-hostin Woody and Friends with Big T & Bob Littell. I want to send out big thanks to all of you who have expressed your love and appreciation for my humble radio show." 

New Saturday Show "Swing City" Debuts 9/12 - "My new Saturday show will feature music from the Big Band Era of the ’30s, ’40s & ’50s." explains host Stephen Tchudi. "I'll share classics from the Swing Band Era & provide historical info (even gossip) about the music and musicians. This was a time of jumpin’, jivin’, and wailin’ with tunes and performances that are still entertaining to people of all ages. Tune in Sat 3-5pm, in the time slot that has been filled so well by Not Necessarily Nashville. Thank You Peter!"
