DJ Dug Deep hosts New Orleans-born, Texas-raised musician, troubadour, and singer/songwriter Bruce Salmon live in the KDRT studios, Friday, September 25, 2:30-3:30 p.m. A veteran of the Austin music scene, Bruce began performing as a solo artist in 2012, releasing his first solo album A Barrel of Monkeys in 2014. His music is steeped in the Texas songwriting tradition; New Orleans jazz, funk, and blues; and more recent studies of ancestral folk music from Eastern Europe. Tune in and enjoy!

This week we'll feature Cincinatti's own Ass Ponys and the 2001 recording Lohio. If you haven't heard of the Ponys, you may have heard of frontman Chuck Cleaver and his current band, Wussy. All new to you? No worries. Sit back and enjoy. It's indie rock with an Americana feel--swell sounds for a summer day.

Rod's guest for Grapevine special is Autumn Labbe-Renault, Davis Media Access executive director. Listen as they discuss concerts, fundraising -- including the May 5 Big Day of Giving -- and share stories and music inspired by Lee Renault -- Autumn's dad, Rod's friend, KDRT's Eclectic Dinosaur for nearly 9 years.
This week's AotW is "Bitter Tea," the 2006 release by the Fiery Furnaces, a band composed of brother and sister Eleanor and Matt Friedberger. It’s a trippy, inspired piece of work that features a tinny upright piano--dragged from the lounge of a depression-era bordello--functioning as the signature instrument, stitching together the patchwork songs with Matt's speedy little trills. Toss in Eleanor’s high, clipped voice; some moog; backward vocals; and other electronic and studio madness...these kids are really on to something! :> DJ Dug Deep hosts.
