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. Community radio stations are operated, owned, and influenced by the communities they serve.

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
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.

20th Century Jazz: each show features instrumental and vocal jazz, usually presented in historical sequence. Occasionally contemporary, sometimes much older selections, lots from the 1940's to the 1980's. Some big band and swing; lots of cool jazz and West Coast; some fusion, a little bebop. Usually some boogie woogie, blues, bossa nova; always something by Ella.
