Acoustic Café

Acoustic Cafe on LCC Radio, 89.7FM!It’s hard to put a definitive label on Acoustic Café’s music selections. After all, a good song is a good song…any individual set of music could contain a bit of country, rock, blues, folk, or pop. Hosted by Rob Reinhart, the show was launched in the early 90s during the surge of “unplugged” music sessions that artists were producing. From classic songwriters like Dylan, Mitchell, Young, Cash, Browne to contemporary artists like David Wilcox, Shawn Colvin, John Gorka, and the Indigo Girls, Acoustic Café covers a little bit of everything. Rob produces his weekly program from Ann Arbor, so WLNZ is proud to feature this great show as a part of our Michigan and local based programming on Fridays.

The Appetizer has also worked to connect listeners to emerging artists including Lindsay Katt, The Rocketboys, The Light Parade, Aryn Michelle, William Fitzsimmons, Flatfoot 56, Matt Morris, Citizen Cope, Rosi Golan and more.

Through music and discussion about songwriting and the creative process, we have subtly and repeatedly delivered the message that we are all creative and that it is not only possible, but imperative that each and all of us express our creative voices.”

Every weeknight from 10p to Midnight, LCC Radio rolls out The Blues Beat with a mix of classics and contemporary favorites.
