Listening Lyrics Nov 15th, 2013 with MICK FLANNERY

Listen now to a whole hour with Mick Flannery. Mick talks about himself and his music. Lauren Cole Norton joined in for this interview.

Mick Flannery was brought up on a farm outside Blarney, Co. Cork, Ireland. His first real connection to music was watching an unplugged Nirvana coveringBowie’s “The Man Who Sold the World”. After a stint in a music college in Cork, he travelled to the U.S. where he “wandered around for a time.” While there, he entered the U.S. Songwriting Competition in Nashville, Tennessee and, to his surprise, won two top awards for his compositions.

Listening Lyrics Nov 8th, 2013 with JUSTIN COX

Listen now - an hour with a very talented and articulate artist.

Justin Cox (from Winters, CA) started playing guitar as a teenager, and went on to front a couple of punk bands (Mr. Nobody and Stenna & the Poison Apples) during high school and college.

A writer by trade, he has a deep appreciation for sentence structure and storytelling. His approach to songwriting has been shaped by artists like Jackson Browne and Paul Simon, but his most formative musical years were spent listening to bands like Goldfinger, Against Me! and Fugazi. You can hear this blend in his songs.

Listening Lyrics Oct 25th, 2013 The DUTCH music scene

After spending 3 weeks in Holland this show shares some of the music scene from Amsterdam. You will hear this weeks number one song. Is the Bieber on the charts? Can people actually slow dance in an up tempo song? Hear two songs from Hollands best known groups known outside of Holland. You will also learn what music genre Holland is on the forefront in. Did I forget jazz - NO you will hear some Dutch Jazz. Some real great Dutch Jazz

 

Listening Lyrics for Sep 20th, 2013 the ANNIVERSARY show

 

Listen NOW to the ANNIVERSARY show

Listening Lyrics started in late August 2012 but we are not counting the few first shows (call it the learning curve). A year into the show and with 25 guests interviewed you might say Jeanne and I have found a format we are comfortable with. To put it into perspective we are having a blast. On top of that our guests are given a full hour to share their story and their talent. For me personally its like spending one hour a week on the psychiatrists couch, I leave the studio pumped up and ready for the week-end. Yep, usually head to a watering hole to down a beer or two after the show.

Listening Lyrics Sep 6th, 2013 with KEVIN WAN

 

If you ask anyone in Davis who influences the music scene locally, a good bet would be that the name KEVIN WAN will pop up. Yes, KEVIN spent an hour with us talking about himself, the music business and how the city of Davis responds to live events. Kevin of course is the driving force behind Sophia's Thai Kitchen so a little food talk might also pop up. 

The play list are KEVIN'S selections. Want to know what KEVIN listens to - well then - listen NOW

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!
