Showdown Returns to WOUB Studios October 1< < Back to
On the first Sunday of the month (excluding summer months), WOUB has been hosting back-to-back bluegrass performances in the station’s studios since 1982, calling the endeavor Showdown.
On Sunday, October 1, Showdown will return to WOUB, with the entirely free and open to the public performances taking place in WOUB Radio Studio A on the third floor of the Radio-Television building on the Ohio University Athens campus starting at 1 p.m. The fall 2017 inaugural performances will be by Won Peace and Out of Mind. Each outfit will perform for an hour, and then speak with the host of the show.
“It all started when one of (WOUB’s) former hosts managed to get a hold of the Hart Brothers in 1982, and wanted to have a one-off performance of theirs in the studio,” said Rusty Smith, WOUB’s FM Director. “It was so much fun, we decided to keep doing it.”
