Davisville, 4/20/15: Out on the Innovation Center listening tour

Davis City Council members Rochelle Swanson, Robb Davis

Davis City Council members Rochelle Swanson and Robb Davis are hosting a “listening tour” this spring to collect comments and questions from the Davis public about the proposals to build one or more innovation centers in town. Few people have turned out for the sessions, even though whatever gets decided could significantly change Davis in the areas of jobs, growth, public services and tax revenue. Here's some context, plus a sample of what they've heard so far.

OUR PROGRAMS

Roots, Shoots, and Leaves

Live Tuesday 6-8pm
Replays Saturday 12-2pm

DJ(s): 

Your host, Tree, loves music.  And his theory of music involves a tree of sorts. Suffice to say it involves a trinity, exploration of themes and connections amongst recording artists, and otherwise very few boundaries.  Listen in as Tree plays music old and new, known and unknown.  Eventually if you listen long enough you might experience some musical enlightments. In the meantime, let him show you the way to the music from the tree of life.

Davisville

Live Monday 5:30-6pm
Replays Wednesday 8:30-9am, Saturday 7:30-8am

DJ(s): 

Short answer: An interview show about people, issues, subjects, and events involving Davis, California. Detailed answer: Davis is full of interesting and often important stories, and I try to do more than present the obvious.

A Scanner Darkly

Live Friday 2:30-3:30pm

DJ(s): 

I am a DJ, I am what I play.  Please join me on KDRT 95.7 for an eclectic mix of music spanning the generational gap.  From the psychedelic sounds of an analogue drone to the digital spectrum of 'the heavy', If it sounds good, I'll play it!

A Constant Grin

Live Friday 2-2:30pm
Replays Monday 9-9:30pm, Tuesday 10-10:30am, Friday 6-6:30pm

DJ(s): 

A 30-minute sampling of indie rock derived from the 1990s and 2000s, fancy subgenres include (but are not limited to): shoegaze, space rock, lo-fi, math rock, dream pop, post-rock, experimental, psychedelic, indie folk, and alternative country. Don't worry--I don't understand what any of those names mean either.

Electric Compost Heap

Live Wednesday 7-9pm
Replays Wednesday 7:30-8:30am, Friday 10pm-Saturday 12am, Saturday 2-4pm

DJ(s): 

Dug Deep hosts a dig through many sound forms--the obscure detritus of blues, soul, country, rock, reggae, jazz, funk, punk, psych, and more--mixing a rich and fertile musical humus. Tune in to KDRT every Wednesday from 7 to 9 pm. Dig it, Heapsters!
