Listening Lyrics Feb 21, 2014, with guest Joaquin Feliciano

Singer songwriter Joaquin Feliciano's performances burst with energy, humor, emotion, and wisdom. As a child, Joaquin studied piano, voice, music theory, and composition. However, the only strong feeling he remembers from that time was: “Please, do NOT let me screw this up!” It took over four decades of living for him to appreciate fully the gift his parents gave him and come to an understanding of music, and especially live performance, as conduits for healing, transformation, and personal growth. Drawing inspiration from local artists like Jackie Carroll and Mike Justis, he bought a guitar, learned some chords, started singing, and pretty much hasn't stopped since.


The Austin Critics Table nominated the group as "Best New Ensemble" in 2011. Now in Davis, CA you have two opportunities for hearing this ensemble, at the Veterans Memorial and on KDRT 95.7FM. Both on friday 2/28/14. 

Mother Falcon began as a jam session among a group of high school cellists eager to break out of the classical repertoire that predominated their musical training. Since then, the band has evolved as an organic collective of classically trained young musicians determined to push their artistry into new musical territory.

WOW -- we can turn you into a DJ!

Yes, we can turn you into a DJ. If you have a passion and are willing to share it, this is YOUR opportunity--and KDRT is all ears. Host a talk show or a music show. Host a show about your interests and topics that would interest the community. Whatever your idea, let's talk...

Here's the kicker: We know that you may know nothing about radio, and so you have no reason to feel intimidated. We're here to provide you with the knowledge and the skills you need.

To find out more, 
stop by the studio at 1623 Fifth Street in East Davis, adjacent to Redwood Barn Nursery, or call us at 530-792-1648.




Listening Lyrics Feb. 14, 2014 Lets spin some VINYL

What a surprise - my guest this week had to cancel. So lets create an opportunity. This is going to be vinyl week. The past few months I have found some sweet vinyl LP records that are just itching to be spun. We are starting of with the SACRED MUSHROOM, a Cincinnati group in the 60's. Blues mixed with the Grateful Dead was their awesome sound. 

But listen up - this is going to be one eclectic hour. So TUNE in.
