Sweet Songs Rock WUSR Thanks to Education Profe...

November 7, 2017

Darryl De Marzio, Ph.D., a professor in the University’s Education Department, has transformed a three-decade-long hobby into a weekly radio show featured on the University’s student-run radio station, WUSR 99.5.

“I have been cataloging and collecting live recordings of Grateful Dead and other musicians’ live performances for almost 30 years,” said Dr. De Marzio.

Every Monday evening for the past two years, De Marzio has hosted his own radio show featuring the music of the Grateful Dead. Scranton faculty have joined him in the studio to share their love of music while offering their own insight on the meaning of Grateful Dead songs. Cyrus Olsen, Ph.D., professor of theology, recently joined De Marzio to discuss the biblical and religious significance of certain Grateful Dead songs.

The radio show has grown in popularity, with listeners from Pennsylvania to Colorado calling in to show their appreciation for the show. De Marzio hopes to continue to promote the show across the state and beyond.
