The Chenango Sessions, hosted by Andru Bemis, is a weekly, one-hour, nationally syndicated radio program which primarily features world-class musicians playing in intimate spaces—living rooms, galleries, and listening rooms—for small, enthusiastic audiences around Binghamton, New York. Audiences and artists are encouraged to interact, and the spirit of the live show is preserved in the radio program and recordings.
Due to the intimate nature of the venues, not all Chenango Sessions are open to the public. If no address is listed, it’s probably a show in a private home. But don’t let that stop you! To attend a private session, you can subscribe to our periodic email newsletter, check the performer’s website, or get details from an acquaintance, family member, or other guest. If you have questions or would like more information, contact Andru.
On the radio
Chenango Sessions airs locally on WBDY-LP 99.5 FM “The Bundy” during the Audio Classics Local Music Hour (11 a.m. and 7 p.m. weekdays, and 7 p.m. weekends), and is distributed nationally through the Pacifica Network of non-commercial, community radio stations. To hear the program on your local Pacifica-affiliated station, make a request with their Program Director, or send your station’s information to Andru.
