WDIY Studio Session: The HillBenders

The HillBenders

Springfield, Missouri band, The HillBenders, joined Arnie Lichten for a live interview and performance to preview their Musikfest performance of 'Tommy: A Bluegrass Opry' later that night at Air Products Americaplatz at Levitt Pavilion SteelStacks.

(Original air-date: 8/8/2017)

Arnie Lichten started broadcasting back in the days of steam powered radio on WJRH in Easton. Leaving the Lehigh Valley for the bright lights and massive audiences of Briarcliff Manor, New York, he spent some time on WRNW, where Howard Stern got his start. Wildly divergent careers followed, and Arnie moved back to the Lehigh Valley, doing shows on WMUH before moving to WDIY. He began hosting Jazz Junction on Friday nights and later moved into his current role as regular Monday afternoon host of The Blend.
