Listening Lyrics - Special guest ALEX ROTH of the WEST NILE RAMBLERS

A RARE treat this week. ALEX ROTH of the band WEST NILE RAMBLERS  will be my guest for the whole hour. This very talented individual will discuss his music, his band, the artists that have influenced him and of course - coffee.

The WEST NILE NILE RAMBLERS were brought together by a desire to play music as often as possible, This band brings years of experience and a depth of understanding to a smörgåsbord of music styles. Don't be surprised if you hear Jazz, Cajun, and Bluegrass tunes at a WNR show near you. Their fairly simple arrangements are made special by their very tight musicianship. Also, they have been known to bicycle to their gigs with all their gear. Gotta give them some credit for that.

The show will air Friday, March 1, 2013 at 4:00PM.

Listening Lyrics - a discussion with Marque Cass of "Tha Dirt Feelin"

This weeks Listening Lyrics will talk with Marque Cass of "Tha Dirt Feelin". A Davis based group that will be performing (Friday 2/15/13) at Beat Night at the John Natsoulas gallery.

To describe the band I will use Marque's own words ""Our music is, in my opinion, a very original and eclectic amalgamation of hip-hop, soul, and rock & roll. It is always upbeat, positive, and danceable. Our lyrical styles range from rapid-fire raps that may remind you of Bone Thugs ‘n Harmony or Three Six Mafia to soulful crooning that evokes Sam Cooke or Bill Withers."

I have heard Marque at the Dr. Andy poetry reading series and frankly Marque blew me away with his presentation and passion.

Soooo - to catch this very special event tune in on Friday at 4:00PM on 95.7FM or on line at www.kdrt.org

Listening Lyrics - Music and guns (lets load guns with music)

FRIDAY 4:00PM

This weeks show will feature music that revolves around guns. Thought it might be fun to see what the musical culture has to say.

In addition we will have a call in guest from GUITARS NOT GUNS a non profit organization working with kids. "Using music as a catalyst we encourage children and teens to use their creativity to foster personal development and to help divert them from self-destructive influences such as drugs, alcohol and gang-related activities. By providing free guitars and lessons we hope to engage their creative potential and help them achieve their dreams."

Their web site is www.guitarsnotguns.org

Some songs are familiar, some not - but all are worth a listen.
