From 6 to 9 AM on Saturday mornings, Sid and Alida bring you the best in traditional and contemporary bluegrass.    Great bluegrass is featured, ranging from the classic artists such as Bill Monroe and the Stanley Brothers to current sounds from the many outstanding bluegrass artists that are active today.
On every Saturday the hour between 8 and 9 AM is called This Is Bluegrass in memory of the late Tom Henderson, who was at WMNF for many years and was one of the most well known and beloved bluegrass programmers in the land.

Sid Flannery has been a programmer on the WMNF Saturday Bluegrass show since 1996. Sid loves the outstanding musicianship, the rich acoustic sounds, and the great soulful singing that characterizes bluegrass. Sid really enjoys hearing from the listeners on Saturday mornings, including those who are very familiar with bluegrass and those who are discovering the music for the first time.

Alida D.  

I was born and raised in Tampa to a family that loved music. Listening to WMNF has provided me a wide variety of bluegrass music to enjoy and appreciate. When the opportunity to volunteer on the Saturday Bluegrass Show became available I was happy to pitch in. I enjoy talking to the listeners, taking requests and playing great bluegrass for them.
