Jim Buchanan

Jim Buchanan has been recording live music for the past 15 years. He loves the energy of live music, and the challenge of "capturing" the essence of a unique performance. Jim is often seen around town recording local concerts to add to his "archive" for his KDRT Live Tracks show. Regular events and venues include the Davis Odd Fellows Hall for its Thursday Live ! concert series, the Davis Music Fest each June, the E Street Plaza, and UC Davis campus for Picnic Day and Whole Earth.


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

Radio broadcasts from the 1930's, '40's and '50's of half-hour episodes from dramatic series, including westerns, comedies, romances and sci-fi.
