Elias Lucero a gifted guitarist on Listening Lyrics recorder May 18th, 2018

Elias Lucero is one gifted dude. Listening Lyrics was thrilled to have him on the show. Not only is he talented but a very articulate and all around great guy. Elias is a music student at Sacramento State. He plays in several bands including Papa Joe and The New deal. Elias is also very busy between schools and the many gigs he squeezes in. Genre you ask? Well better ask Elias himself he answers that during the show. Elias was my first guest that feeds his guitar directly into the studio board, which is new board as of a few weeks ago. So the hour does have some techinical hic ups.

Didar Singh Khalsa guest for May 11th, 2018

The Gold Souls are bringing the driving grooves of funk, the rich textures of soul, and the compelling storytelling of the blues to the Northern California scene.

Their recent efforts include the release and tour of their self-recorded and produced, eponymous EP in May of 2017. This release, while remaining an honest representation, is only the beginning of the band’s creative journey. Their full length record is set to release in Summer of 2018.

Check out "Low Strung" on Listening Lyrics last week!

Doug Kelly stood in for Pieter today to host Low Strung.    Somehow all of these wonderful Yale students fit in our TV studio for a video recording and a live radio broadcast.

Listen above to hear the chaos- special thanks to Live Tracks host Jim Buchanan, Bryce Parker for the video, and our own Preacher for helping with camera.    It takes a village sometimes!    

Special thanks to KDRT operations memeber Diane Crumley for the photo and ushering the group through our space.   And, yes, those are all Cello cases in our video editing area....

hi peter,  i would like to shadow your show...so i hope it would be okay to watch you at work.  doctorvshow@hotmail.com or 608 515 2848  thanks reid.

Since this was a teaching show where I was the student - may the student share?

Screaming Jay Hawkins: His most popular song was "I put a Spell on you". But, my personal favorite and much less known was: "You Put a Spell on Me." Definitely a blast from the past.

Best recent drummers: please add Levon Helm from The Band to the list, he dramatically changed the role of the drummer in a band.

Luciano Pavarotti: He passed in 2007. However he recorded a show for PBS along with Jose Carreras and Placido Domingo titled; The Three Tenors (and as luck would have it I caught it on our local PBS statation - again - just a week ago). Magnificent!

 

Great comments Dirk - Thank you. Robert is a guy that has great musical taste - all this from a very young man. 

cheers

Definitely one fine show Pieter & Jeanne. It was hearing the eclectic mix of music which brought on a rush of memories. Notably, Phillip Glass’ “Open the Kingdom” made me think on my personal favorite Glass piece, the score to the film; Powaqqatsi. As an aside, having a grandchild with Aspergers I remembered listening to an interview with Music Critic, Tim Page who revealed that after being diagnosed as having Aspergers realized that it was Glass’ minimalist focus on each individual note/sound which had him absolutely love Glass’ works; listening by the hour and eventually seeking a career in music. At the time I heard that interview it proved to be just the right positive “punch” I needed while reflecting the future opportunities for my own grandchild.  The wonder of music is indeed powerful.

Thanks - we had fun putting it together.

Once I get all of your albums cleaned up - I'm doing a show on your collection. I think I'll call it Vinyl - one mans trash reaps another mans treasure. :)

More dobra, more acordian, more piano, more 'silky' voiced lyrics, more Richie Lawrence. Great show!

If I lived in the Davis area I'd chase these two around to every one of their gigs. What a find!

Surely this was a relaxing hour complete with great banter and music. All that was missing was for all of us sitting around with some after dinner Port and maybe a fire in the fireplace as the conversation carried on.

You and Jeanne were so right about the old 78s and their scratch bringing something special to the listening experience. The occasional totally 'dead' moments found on CDs are almost jarring.

Loved Alpert's opening & Justin's closing bumps.

Had I realized just how wonderfully mellow this show was I would have listened in the evening with a cup of caffeine free Peppermint tea and my feet up on the table. As it was, listening in the morning, it was still one I was gald I did not miss.

Just discovered that I am never too old to learn -- this week Chris Clark opened up a whole new pathway leading to a greater appreciation of and the enchantment of jazz.

Thanks for having Chris Clark on the show Pieter.
