Divine Intervention Strikes - Mar 27

Could we have found a higher-quality image for this week's edition of "Vinyl Vespers"? Short answer is "nope," but the good news is that it may actually be a good bargain-bin find this time around; i.e., GOOD good versus BAD good. Guess we'll have to tune in at 7p PT for Divine Intervention to find out more and to hear some rock, punk, rap, fun, a little country, and of course new music from the likes of Sleaford Mods, Sinners & Saints, Western Addiction...

Album of the Week -- Rush Hour by Joe Lovano

Rush Hour, released in 1995, was a collaboration between the American jazz saxophonist Joe Lovano and longtime composer/arranger Gunther Schuller, featuring compositions by Ellington, Mingus, Monk, and Schuller.  Schuller coined the term "Third Stream", referring to a music composed and performed using jazz and classical music techniques.  

Album of the Week - Stone Fox - Mar 16 at 5P

AotW this week is Stone Fox's first album, self-titled and released on Rockstar Records in 1996. Stone Fox was one of San Francisco's best 90s bands, bringing amazing energy to their recordings and much, much more to their live shows. Tune in 5-6p PT, March 16, to hear Jorjee, Yvette, Kim, Janis, and Brett rock off their (and your) socks -- or ripped nylons, as the case may be.

Divine Intervention Strikes - Lucky Mar 13

It's lucky Monday March 13th -- yes, of course that's a thing -- and we'll be celebrating with new music and more -- including this likely terrible Vinyl Vespers feature -- starting at 7p PT sharp. Even luckier, it'll feel like it's 6p because of the weekend's ridiculous clock change, so there you go. Tune in tonight for Divine Intervention -- rock, pop, miscellanea, etcetera -- on your favorite little radio station, KDRT 95.7 FM DAVIS.
