Tune into "That's Life" this week for an interview with Autumn Labbe-Renault. Topics of discussion will include Autumn's Etsy store as well as an update on what's new with KDRT, DMA and DCTV. The show airs Thursday at 1pm.
In advance of June 4th's premiere screening of Alvin Remmer's documentary "The Closing Of The Palms Playhouse" at the Veteran's Theater in Davis, The Folk Brothers will devote our May 31 show to reminiscing about the musical magic that happened regularly in that South Davis barn. As well as the musical artists - like U Utah Phillips and Kate Wolf - whose names were associated with the old Palms, we will recall some of the extraordinary shows that graced the barn.
I am looking forward to hosting the Americana, acoustic string trio The Stray Birds on Live DiRT at the KDRT studio, Thursday, May 25th beginning at 2:00 p.m. The Stray Birds – originally from Lancaster, Pennsylvania – are on the West Coast leg of the “Open Window Tour” for their most recent album “Magic Fire”, recorded in Woodstock, New York, with producer and multi-instrumentalist Larry Campbell (Bob Dylan, Levon Helm, Paul Simon, Willie Nelson). The Stray Birds will also be appearing at The Palms Playhouse in Winters at 8 PM that evening (May 25th).
Mostly West Coast cool jazz tonight!
