Listening Lyrics for May 23rd, 2014 with THE LURK

The LURK (AKA Nick Carvajal) joined us this week. Literally a one man band, he plays the drums, guitar, harmonica, and sings - many times most of those at the same time. Nick has and does perform in several band. This show he shares some of those bands and also we will listen to some of the music that has influenced his musical journey. The big surprise for me this show is the diversity of his music tastes. A refreshing journey into one mans music brain.

Listening Lyrics Apr 18th, 2014 with FEATHERWEIGHT

Featherweight is an American "rock" band based in Sacramento, CA. I put the word rock in quotes because these young musicians are more than rock. They have a unique capacity to create a rich sound around their writing capabilities. The vocals in their music are a rare gift that grab your ears. A fusion of sound that has earned them the respect in the music scene in Northern California.

Listening Lyrics Apr 4th, 2014 with THE SPOKES

ALERT - ALERT ---This was my first live radio broadcast from the TV studio and we had some audio issues - Start listening at the 6:25 mark of the audio. The music comes through very well after that the interview part is a little low on volumn - I do apologize.

Still it was a great show ( THE SPOKES were awesome) wraped up by a wonderful performance by Uncle Peter.

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!
