Random Draw

When Pittsfield Community Television inherited the 20k Album Collection from the Taconic High School Studio for WTBR-FM, Dave Cachat was inspired to produce Random Draw: Each week, Dave selects a random shelf in the expansive collection, and then selects several random albums from that shelf. The result is a chaotic, joyful exploration of the musical history that is a part of WTBR's 40+ year history!
