The Blue Door opens to the airwaves 


Faithful Blue Door fans may recognize the name of the show, as it’s the same as a program Johnson ran on KRXO-FM 107.7 that ended seven years ago. But while the host station has changed, “Sake”’s commitment to good music has not. While the venue at 2805 N. McKinley caters almost exclusively to singer/songwriters, the radio hour is a little more wide-open.

“It’s in the folk, Americana, singer/songwriter world, but I’m not going to hold myself to that,” Johnson said. “If it’s good music, I’ll play it.”

Keeping the listener guessing, eh? “There’s no real genre format. I could play a hard rockin’ song by someone, then play George Gershwin,” said Johnson. “You’re getting a peek into Greg Johnson’s CD collection.”

In addition to playing music, the radio station features special guests performing in the studio, interviews and more. Folk artist Ray Wylie Hubbard will be featured this Sunday, in advance of his Jan. 21 and 22 shows for The Blue Door’s 19th anniversary.

Hear the show on KOSU-FM 91.7 or online at kosu.org. —Stephen Carradini
