Wild Fox Radio Party

Frank aka Dr Doowop Fox

Wild Fox Radio Party begins Feb 13 at 10 AM

Hope you can join Dave and I as we begin our radio careers and steep our

selves in the KDRT airwaves "bringing you the best in recorded" and sometimes live

music.

I stole "the recorded music" line from my  initial Mentor DJ Symphony Sid  Torin in NYC

back in the early 50's to mid 60's.

This radio show had its conception in the early 1960's when the jocks on air were playing programmed set lists. I told my friend and  music colleague Norman Bergen  that I wanted a free format radio show and that I would call it the "wild fox hour". Here it comes...........

A special shout out to Val Shively, from Upper Darby Pennsylvania for his dedication to keeping this music in the hands of avid collectors from All Over The World. Val has been the main source of roots Doowop music since the early 1970's. Google him. I plan to interview him in the near future. He one funny dude.

Samuel Sancho Nelson on Listening Lyrics Friday Feb. 2, 2018 4:00PM

Samuel Sancho Nelson is a 21-year old student at UC Davis from Sacramento. He has been playing guitar for almost 10 years, and singing for 3 years. For Samual, music is the one thing that lets him truly live in the moment and feel catharsis. While performing his main goal is to express the truest meaning of the song. Samual will be spending the whole hour with us so plenty of time for him to sing a few songs.

For those outside the listening area this program will be streamed live at www.kdrt.org

Album of the Week for 01/31/2018 is "Offerings" by Typhoon

Listen: of all the things you're about to lose, this will be the most painful.

 

 

And so begins Typhoon's "Offerings," a sprawling 2-LP journey into a man's loss of memory, self, and indentity. It's dense. It's dark. I like it and I hope you will, too. My only current issue is that it's just over an hour, so I'm either going to have to skip a track or talk over it or something similar. Tune in to find out how I handle this very real problem as I spin "Offerings" in its entirety... even though such a feat is literally impossible.
