Davisville, 9/15/14: Telling your tale, even before you know it

In “round-robin storytelling,” a group of people make up a story on the spot. Sally Parker says it’s a good way to bust through writer’s block, and just a lot of fun, whether you’re a writer or not. Parker presented a session on round-robin storytelling this month in Central Park as part of her Square Tomatoes crafts fair, and will again in October. On today’s show, she and Davisville host Bill Buchanan use the technique to make up a story on air … or at least the first part of a story. The rest of the show goes into what this kind of storytelling is all about. Come listen to the result.

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.
