Live Tracks

Live Tracks program picture

Live Tracks highlights a wide range of live musical performances, from early 60s rock to modern rockabilly, from blues to bluegrass.  The program frequently features local performances recorded and mixed here in Davis by host Jim Buchanan.

Hunter Thompson is credited with the expression "When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro."  Welcome to the pro shop!  "Always look on the bright side of life." [Monty Python, 'Life of Brian'].  We make up the rules about how to feel.  "No one here gets out alive."  [Sam Clemens]  Too soon?  "I'm working hard, at the art, of doing nothing." [Mumbo Gumbo]   I'll be back.  See that you are, too.  "As always, live simply, love generously, and be kind." [Moseanko]    Peace.

The program Live Tracks began broadcasting on KDRT September 30, 2004.  As of March 2020 there have been 592 unique programs produced.

Live Tracks Highlights a Decade of Thursday Live! Recordings - Part 1

This week, Live Tracks focuses almost entirely on Yolo County bands, from shows recorded during the monthly Thursday Live! concert series at the Davis Odd Fellows Hall. In November 2009, Jim recorded his first Thursday Live! concert, with the Rita Hosking Trio, and the rest is history -- at an average of 9 shows per year, the total exceeds 90 two-hour concerts recorded, mixed, and broadcast on KDRT Thursday evenings during Live Tracks. This week's episode covers a lot of ground, and samples popular local bands such as The Cups, Rita Hosking Trio, The Muddy Waders, the legendary Clarence Van Hook with Cedar Seeger, The West Nile Ramblers, Bonanza King, The Davis "Odd Stars" from the 2018 British Invasion Concert, the Golden Cadillacs, and a special recording of Mumbo Gumbo from the November 2018 Fire Relief Benefit.

Live Tracks for 7:00pm on Oct 17th, 2019

  Bill Scholer talks about his music, plays the guitar and chats with Jan Peters on this episode of Live Tracks.  Among other things, Bill explains some of the back story to his unique song "Sniper."  This show contains music to supplement the interview, much of which I recorded over the years here in Davis.  As such, the show will remain available for listening past the normal two week cycle.  Peace.

Hi Jim,
Your show makes for great bike commute music...regarding Daltry & Townsend "cultural" award...it was the Kennedy Center awards...presented by, you guessed it...dubya! Oh, and the Sac.
