Patrick Van Dyke Talks Music and Community Radio, Recorded May 17th, 2019

This show was recorded during our 2019 spring fund raising week. Please consider giving to one hell of a community radio station. DONATE HERE KDRT.org

With Patrick in the studio we talked about live music and played some local bands. Patrick also stressed the impotance of communty radio in the arts.

Patrick Van Dyke can be seen all over Northern California as he absorbs and appreciates live music. So he is my guest this week as we explore his love of music and how community radio helps so many budding artists find a voice and a platform.

We played songs from The Big Poppies, Boot Juice, The Midnight Dip, The Nickel Slots, The Polyorchids and Khruangbin.

Harry Greer Follows a Path, His Path. Recorded May 10th, 2019

Harry Greer (HG) is an artist/musician and the founder of the Davis rebel art and music collective known as BRAINMELTER.

BRAINMELTER (at brainmelter.net) is a group of Davis natives dedicated to making Davis/Yolo a haven for the arts and to changing the world through hip art and sick music. Each of the Brainmelters have a completely different style and genre, which means that there’s definitely something for everyone. Hip hop, pop punk, folk rock, cringecore, hardcore, vaporwave, it’s all of it. The whole collective adds up to some fun and colorful local counter culture.

Jesse and Andy of The Outcome along with Michael Phillip Taylor recorded on May 3rd, 2019

Listen in now to the interview with Jesse Sizemore and Andy Dibben of The Outcome along with their recording producer Michael Phillip Taylor.

The Outcome’s unique brand of genre-bending music combines grooving backbeats, melodic bass lines, textural atmospherics, and searing guitar leads to produce the challenging yet palatable songs that define the band’s sound. This Sacramento quartet has made their mark by striking a balance between complexity and listenability. While exerting meticulous focus of their material, Jesse, Andy, Mike, and Quinn refuse to settle or compromise their standards for songwriting. Seeing their music as a catalyst for connection, The Outcome look for ways to bring imaginative new experiences to listeners that manifest emotions and provoke intrigue.

Josh & Amy Anne Kräge on Listening Lyrics, Recorded, Apr 19th, 2019

Listen now to the replay

“Husband and wife singer/songwriter duo Joshua and Amy Anne Kräge had been playing music in and around Sacramento for ten years before ever even meeting, let alone playing music together.  Filling in for members of the same cover band for a private event in October 2013, their first meeting was their first practice together for their first gig together; their first date was just a few days later, and they've been playing together ever since.

     Both members of too many bands to ever be able to list over the years, Amy and Joshua found common ground in versatility.  Amy has sung and Josh has played everything from opera to Steely Dan to '90s grunge to folk pop to roadhouse blues to '50s doo-wop to Chaka Khan-approved funk and more.  Currently also working together in chameleonic Sacramento pop/funk outfit The Pressure Lounge, they decided to make Love + Honey about the lighter side of the art of music, focusing on positive message and powerful melody in both their original songs and cover material choices.

     Equipped with ears for harmonies and hearts for lifting the spirits of whoever's listening, Love + Honey strives to be the brightest spot on the speakers of the collective world.”

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.

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!
