Animation Discussion (plus Music) with Zahra Baxi. Recorded March 15th, 2019

For the last couple of years every Friday at Davis Media Access (and right next to the KDRT studio), teens have been participating in an animation class, in a self-organised group known as the Davis Teen Animators’ Club. Their mentor is DMA's own Alex Silva-Sadder. Well, as you might have guessed, we got to know them a bit, and a few months ago I asked them to join me this Friday. So listen now to club president Zahra Baxi and Alex as they share about animation and play some of their favorite music.

The Gold Souls live in the studio, recorded Feb 8th, 2019

Vocalist Juniper Waller, percusionist Billy D. Thompson and bass player Jace Dorn of The Gold Souls were in the studio. The Gold Souls bring the driving grooves of funk, the rich textures of soul, and the compelling storytelling of the blues to the Northern California scene. With the dynamic Juniper Waller at the helm, the band combines their many influences to create a unique sound that rings true to the idioms that inspire them. 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. A new single is scheduled for release Febuary 12, 2019.

Brotherly Mud in the studio, recorded Feb 1st, 2019

Brotherly Mud is as if the 60's and 70's folk tradition continued into the modern day, taking influence from today's songwriters while respecting yesterday's honesty.

With members graduating from the Berklee College of Music and the Musician's Institute, Brotherly Mud respects the art of musical creation through both an educational and deeply human lens.

Constantly working to be true to their artistic spirits, Brotherly Mud is currently touring with their original material all over the West Coast, with shows, radio interviews and the occasional secret performance.

For those outside the listening area - fear not, this show will be streamed live (and archived) on www.kdrt.org

Neil Heaton discusses his new album. Recorded Jan 18th, 2019

Neil Heaton discussed his new project called "Limits and Rituals".  He can sing, he can play, he can compose. Neil Heaton is a pianist from Sacramento, California.  As influenced by jazz virtuosos as he is alternative auteurs, his music attempts to find the common ground between rock, jazz, pop, and hip-hop. That description is exactly why his compositions are a delight. Listen in as we talk with and listen to Neil. Vist and listen to Neil https://neilheaton.bandcamp.com.

Jessica Malone in the KDRT studio interview - Jan 11th, 2019

We interviewed Jessica Malone about her new album "Jessica Malone Live" playing some songs from the CD and also she performed  a few live for us. Jessica Malone is an award winning singer/ songwriter who was raised in the tall mountains of far northern California. Her original music evokes a sense of wanderlust, self-discovery, positivity and moving forward. On Jessica's latest release, "The Waiting Hours" EP, drums, upright bass, violin, acoustic & electric guitar accompany her powerful and soothing vocals. Her raw and unfiltered approach to folk/ Americana songwriting creates music that will take you back in time, while her heartfelt lyrics will keep you rooted in the present.

Pieter!!! I was listening to few of your shows today.
First- this is high quality stuff!!!! I was blown away!!! great music, great interviews, great ideas for the show. I'm a fan!!!!
Secondly- You two have great communication there. 
Third- for me, it is just brilliant to be able to listen to you two. Your voice sounds so familiar. It feels like sitting with you in the same room. You sound so calm and I just LOVE it.

Mesmerizing show Pieter. Gave me that moment of pause and allowed me to begin wrapping my arms around music and lyrics which will let calm settle in. An excellent compilation of wonderful words and sounds. Thanks.  

Love the new dimension and the seamless, feed-each-other, dimension it gives the program's back and forth banter. Great music selection and accompanying background info this week!

So good, so listenable, so smooth,and exactly my favorite style in music. Thanks Pieter and Alex.

 

What can I say; I LOVED THIS SHOW!

Additionally, I'll let you in on a secret, this was the first time that I listened to, not one, but two complete Rap songs -- and enjoyed them. :)

 

Loved the show and thoroughly enjoyed Cory. Tell him what Michael J Fox once said; "I am careful not to confuse excellence with perfection. Excellence, I can reach for; perfection is God's business."  He was excellent.

the October 3rd show was way too short. What a mellow and superbly classy hour that just blew by. Thanks!
