Message from Jeff - KDRT's Production Manager

"Enjoy the holiday- read a book, write a postcard, send a letter,
go for a walk, take a photo, listen to a record, go see live music, ride
a bike, paint a picture, hang some lights, and by all means avoid
shopping if you can"

and ........ listen to the 30 plus original programs on KDRT 95.7 FM in Davis. One of the nations finist community radio stations right here in Davis.

What IS Community Radio

Check this out and see what Wikipedia says about COMMUNITY RADIO. Community radio is a radio service offering a third model of radio broadcasting in addition to commercial and public broadcasting. Community stations serve geographic communities and communities of interest. They broadcast content that is popular and relevant to a local, specific audience but is often overlooked by commercial or mass-media broadcasters.

Listening Lyrics with Mick Flannery - this Friday

It is not every week we have an international renowned singer/songwriter - BUT _ this week we do.

Mick Flannery was brought up on a farm outside Blarney, Co. Cork, Ireland. His first real connection to music was watching an unplugged Nirvana coveringBowie’s “The Man Who Sold the World”. After a stint in a music college in Cork, he travelled to the U.S. where he “wandered around for a time.” While there, he entered the U.S. Songwriting Competition in Nashville, Tennessee and, to his surprise, won two top awards for his compositions.

Mick has a couple of top 10 singles in Europe and is in California for ONLY two shows (SF and Davis) before heading back to Ireland.

Catch him live Friday Nov. 15 in Davis at THIRD SPACE

Listening Lyrics Nov 8, 2013, 2013 with the JUSTIN COX

Listening Lyrics has been after this guy for months and finally we get to spend an hour with him.

Justin (from Winters, CA) started playing guitar as a teenager, and went on to front a couple of punk bands (Mr. Nobody and Stenna & the Poison Apples) during high school and college.

A writer by trade, he has a deep appreciation for sentence structure and storytelling. His approach to songwriting has been shaped by artists like Jackson Browne and Paul Simon, but his most formative musical years were spent listening to bands like Goldfinger, Against Me! and Fugazi. You can hear this blend in his songs.
