Friday July 19, 2013 - RITA HOSKING is our guest


Rita Hosking sings about forest fires but it is her that is setting the folk music scene on blaze. Her new album "Little Boat" appeared as #7 on the folk music charts and her single "Parting Glass" as #3. So listen in this Friday as we spend an hour with Rita and her guitar.

"In scorching form" (UK Telegraph), Northern California's own Rita Hosking sings of forest fires, culture clash, demolition derbies, the working class and hope.  From major U.S. festivals to Bob Harris's BBC show, Rita is moving audiences around the globe with her stories in song and doubly sweet and sinewy voice, "a captivating performer," (R2 Magazine.)

Listening Lyrics July 12, 2013 with NAT LEFKOFF

This past weekend I was invited to see and hear some live music at a new coffee shop in town. Nat Lefkoff was the first act and he blew me away. His vocals, lyrics, stage presence and a touch of mischief made him an instant must for this show. Fortunately I had an opening so get ready to spend an hour with Nat.

Nat will also be introducing his new CD.

You can visit Nat at http://natlefkoff.bandcamp.com

Listening Lyrics for 4 p.m. Friday, June 14, 2013 with EVAN DALY

This week we are thrilled to have Evan Daly with us for a whole hour. Evan is the music man of Davis. He is involved with the local music scene, including the band, THA DIRT FEELIN; he co-founded ROCKBAND UNIVERSITY, which takes teens to a new level as on-stage performers; and teaches music in Davis.

The one thing we cannot show you is Evans' awesome stage presence--he knows how to get the crowd involved while expertly slipping his fingers over his guitar, showing us some slick licks.

So join us as we hear and talk with Evan.
