Tune in 7-9p Pacific time for another edition of Divine Intervention. In addition to a truly suberb Vinyl Vespers selection, we shall have new music from the likes Rod Melancon, Terry Anderson, R.Y.E., Lo Tom, and who knows what else.
This evening on Divine Intervention, we'll listen to some sweet sounds from the bands performing at tomorrow's Fourth of July celebration (thanks to the Davis Live Music Collective). "Which bands?" you ask. None other thanCon Brio, Achilles Wheel, and Element Brass Band. "Will this be fun?" you ask. Actually, no, you don't—because you know from the line-up that the answer is a definite "Yes!" Instead, you ask if George Maharis is in one of these bands. We decline to answer that silly question, but we do hope you'll tune in for the July 4th preview, new music, and, of course, Vinyl Vespers, only on Divine Intervention, 7-9p PT, on KDRT-FM.
Throughout the eras of Western and Cowboy music, there have been those who have played pivotal roles in the music's development and popularity. On the July 7, 2017 episode, we will hear music from some of these icons including, Bob Wills & the Texas Playboys, Patsy Montana, Gene Autry, Ian Tyson and others who have changed the course of western music history.
I love this new lp by The Shins. It's very diverse, but still sounds like them.
Can hardly wait for their concert at The Greek Theater in Berkeley with Spoon. Nice bill, but The Shins definitely put out a better record between the two this year.
This episode features contemporary western performers. You'll hear new cowboy songs, western swing and modern western tunes. All the tracks are recently released. You'll be hearing the newest cuts from the Thickcrust Doughboys, Aspen Black, Mary Kaye, Doug Figgs, Dave Stamey and more. Immerse yourself in the rich milieu of music.
