Live in the Loam presents DICK DIVER, Monday Sept 22, 2014, 4:00PM

KDRT's POP UP show "Live in the Loam" is thrilled to have this very talented Australian band visit us in the studio. Melbourne deep-pop thinkers Dick Diver triumphed in 2013 with second album Calendar Days, the follow-up to 2011 debut New Start Again. Warm, wide, and inviting, Calendar Days is a magnificent Australian pop album, hailed as one of the year’s finest.

Listening Lyrics Sept 19, 2014, with CASEY GROAT 4PM

Casey Groat photoSometimes young talent needs a little polishing, but in the case of singer/songwriter CASEY GROAT he comes to us with a shine that begs to be heard. Casey enjoys a natural stage presence along with the tunes that he crafts. Picking away at his guitar shows us that young talent is worth more then a listen but worth our attention.
