Don't miss Mystery Train on Wednesday nights at 6 on WRUR-FM 88.5. Hosted by Mark Grube, the program is an eclectic musical journey where one genre rolls seamlessly into the next, linking artists and songs from the past and present in unique and interesting ways. From blues to bop, folk to funk and soul to swing, you'll hear the most original and distinctive music sequenced to inspire a new appreciation for the familiar and a sense of anticipation for what's over that next horizon.
"When I was first planning out what Mystery Train would sound like, I wanted lots of different genres hooked up together like freight cars," explains Grube. "But I didn't just want to play songs at random. I wanted a reason for one tune to follow another." Grube admits that some sets fall together easily, while others take days to prepare. "Most shows kind of end up going where they want."
