With a rotating cast of hosts and in-depth exploration of entire albums, Album of the Week brings a fantastically fun hour to the airwaves.
Host Lois Richter’s That’s Life format is mosty interviews. Recurring topics include Davis activities and groups; work and life choices; philosophy and theory; plus birding, cooking, art, and other passions. Lois occasionally breaks into music -- from ballads to the slack key sounds of Hawaii -- but mostly we just talk.

Tune in for a wide variety of roots music, including doo-wop, gospel, jazz, blues, rock 'n' roll, Latin, African, and hillbilly/country bluegrass, from the early 1920s to contemporary times. The Wild Fox Party focuses on vocal groups , small-group ensembles, and outstanding vocalists and instrumentalists who never or hardly ever get heard. The music provides a forum for learning about history and diverse cultures, and it does so through the exposure of music as art highlighting points in time that will last forever via the medium of audio recordings.
