Live in the LOAM presents BONANZA KING Saturday 9/6/14 at 1:00PM

LIVE IN THE LOAM is our NEW pop-up show featuring touring and local artists who are playing in and around Davis. It's a "pop-up" as it doesn't have a fixed position in our on-air schedule. This Saturday we will be interviewing and listening to BONANZA KING, a well-established local western swing band with deep roots into the Americana genres. Kari King and Keith Cary (of BONANZA KING) will join me in the studio. Their new CD is scheduled for release Sept. 13, 2014

Album of the Week Aug 14, 2014,(6:00PM) Billie Joe + Norah "FOREVERLY"

Album Of The week - this - week is - BILLY JOE + NORAL "EVERLY"

"At first glance, this is a very odd record: an American punk superstar and an easy-listening chanteuse perform stripped-back Everly Brothers covers. It is hard to imagine Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong andNorah Jones even sharing the same vocal booth, let alone harmonising with straight-arrow sincerity through murder ballads, sentimental weepies, corny cowboy songs and country laments.

This is a straightforward track-by-track recreation of the Everly Brothers’ classic Songs Our Daddy Taught Us, with Armstrong taking Don Everly’s lead role and Jones singing Phil's high harmonies. Younger brother Phil sadly died shortly after this tribute album was released, on 3rd January 2014 of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease brought on by smoking.

Listening Lyrics Aug 15th, 2014 with ROWAN MCGUIRE

Sometimes you just know - that was the case when I heard this young man at an open mic. I knew within minutes that I would love to have him on the show. So, this week Rowan McGuire is my guest for the full hour. Rowan  is a singer-songwriter from Davis, California, where he plays guitar, drums and sings. His songs feature unique finger picking techniques that have percussive elements, and they involve many different tunings. Recently he has added lyrics and vocals to his guitar playing to increase the depth and diversity of his music, blending vocal melodies and harmonies with complex picking patterns. His musical influences are John Mayer, Ben Howard, Michael Hedges, Andy McKee, and Tommy Emmanuel.
