Eccentric Soul: Sitting In The Park was conceived of as a tribute to our friend and colleague Bob Abrahamian, his weekly radio show “Sitting In The Park” (WHPK), and the Chicago artists he championed. Meticulously researched and tirelessly compiled, “Sitting In The Park” brought Bob face to face with the sweet soul artists whose far-flung recordings had quickly grown from hobby to obsession. So where better to celebrate Bob’s time on terrestrial airwaves than aboard the universal college radio station of the future, NTS? This special broadcast includes a conversation between co-host Rob Sevier and Otis Brown, whose “Southside Chicago” became an anthem and theme song for Bob’s long-running radio show. Bob was never able to sit down with the Brown, so we engaged the Memphis transplant in a fashion consistent with Bob’s thorough interview style (“Sitting In The Park” episodes are archived at the website of the same name).
