Storyteller Chimamanda Adichie speaks of the "danger of a single story" and the need to obtain a more complete perspective. I believe her statement speaks to the heart of country, folk, or Americana music as these genres in particular are a storytellers medium. Chimamanda points out a single account, or perspective, often gives us an incomplete understanding of the story and the people involved. As a radio host I will be more mindful and work towards providing a more complete and diverse musical perspective and hopefully ensure that one story isn't the only story. 

Featured artists: Kia Kater, Henry Thomas, Canned Heat, Greg Brown, Amythyst Kiah, The Vespers, Burnstick, High Country, Laurie Lewis, Lucinda Williams, The Waybacks with Nicki Bluhm and Sweet Honey on the Rocks. 

Tune in Tuesday from 11:00 am to Noon and 7:00 to 8:00 p.m at KDRT 95.7FM or stream @KDRT.org

Replays Tuesday evening at 7:00 to 8:00 p.m.

Hey Rusty.....have just listened to tonights show...some great stuff much of which i had not heard! Of course Matty Groves is a great Fairport tune and i was lucky enough to catch them a few years ago at their annual Cropredy Festival...still going strong! Thanks for playing Gillian Welch and Dave Rawlings last time out and if this slots into your general remit I think your listeners would love it! Maybe preface it with " DO NOT poke with a stick and play LOUD!" Ray Willie Hubbard...Snake Farm! A great music station and thanks for the heads up !

Loving the new show, full of great music selections, keep up the good work, Rusty!

Thank you! Appreciate your comment! Enjoy  sharing the music of artists that, otherwise, might not receive notice.
