The Sunday News

Being a resident of Central PA has its advantages, but more often than not you need to actively seek out opportunities to see and hear new indie and 'alternative'-type music. For over ten years, midstate resident Bill Hanson has been putting together a two-hour show called "The Sunday News." It airs weekly on Sundays, early in the morning and late in the evening on 105.7 The X. Being a longtime listener of the show and its eclectic mix of rock, singer-songwriters, electronica, and beats, I recently contacted Bill and obtained his playlist for Sunday, May 1. A special thanks to Bill Hanson for his time and dedication to great music that doesn't get airplay on the radio nearly enough. Hopefully, this will be a weekly feature on RiB.

    What a great idea, and public service.

    I've been warming up to the Kathleen Edwards and Heavy Trash records since hearing this playlist.
