I’m an old school guy and was around before cable TV (let alone the internet). There were three
major networks back then and one of their favorite formats was the variety show. The variety format meant just that; a little something for everyone. One of the more popular programs, The Ed Sullivan Show, on any given Sunday featured magicians, jugglers, comics, a song from the original cast of a Broadway show, and of course something for the teenagers (Elvis, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones). It was all live and the audience was an integral part of the show.For the past two years the variety format lives on with 990WBOB’s Mondays On Blast show.
Broadcast live from its current location on Richmond Street in Providence (The Spot on Top), the show became a major ratings stealer with BOB listeners making it a consistent weekly choice. And why not?
MOB has presented a full range of local and regional talent in music and comedy from the get go. A sampling of acts over the two years includes: The Stilts, Satellites Fall, Torn Shorts, Tester, North East Traffic, Vudu Sister, Jon Perrotta, Ahmed Bharooocha, Dan Martin, Doug Key, John Porch.
This list should include comics and feature some of the more successful performers.
