This week, Divine Intervention strikes to save us from that anticlimatic DMF hangover. Yes, the 7th annual Davis Music Fest (and KDRT's 2nd annual DMF live broadcast) was good fun for all—so much fun that it's hard to say goodbye. On top of that, unless you are as intrepid as our own photographista Eunah, you likely didn't catch every band on every stage. To remedy this situation on this hotter-than-hades evening, we'll skip Vinyl Vespers tonight (and even skimp a little on the new tunes) simply to revisit assorted savory sounds from several DMF7 artists. Do tune in, 7-9p Pacific, only on KDRT! For visual accompaniment, peruse Eunah's hot photos here!
Once again, the KDRT Live DiRT crew brings the sounds of the 7th Annual Davis Music Fest to the airwaves. Join KDRT broadcasters for the live-music action:
* The SUDWERKS’s kickoff party on FRIDAY evening, with the Polyorchids, Kaz Mirblouk, The Nickel Slots, and Boca do Rio…
* The K-DiRT Stage at ARMADILLO MUSIC on SATURDAY, with Lillian Frances, Tony Bonacci, Gabe Lewin, Garrett Pierce, Hannah Jane Kile, and Pets…
* The WOODSTOCK’s afternoon party on SUNDAY, with the Golden Gate String Quartet, Be Brave Bold Robot, The Five Thirty, and the West Nile Ramblers.
In addition to broadcasting the musical acts from these fine venues, an expanded Live DiRT crew will roam the streets of downtown Davis on Saturday, collecting interviews, sounds, and samples from across the festival for sharing over the air and social media. See you at DMF7!
As George Harrison sang "All Things Must Pass" - Tonight is the final episode of DEAD WAX which was created and hosted by Jesse Deere. I had a hand in getting Jesse on the air but tonight, as he celebrates his 100th and final show, he taught me that music is more than just the joy of hearing it but discovering what makes it so. Dead Wax will leave a big hole in KDRT's line up. Jesse played several genres but the main focus was Americana and vinyl. He alsways had a theme to his show and I loved hearing his comments on why he selected the songs he played. So to sum up his 100 shows on KDRT, we have loved having him in the studio and have been blessed to be able to broadcast his passion of vinyl.
All the best Jesse
Love Pieter and the KDRT gang

Mardi Morillo is a singer-songwriter out of the Bay Area. In a former life, he worked as a CIO in the healthcare industry. He found his life's passion in music when he quit due to losing partial vision from glaucoma. Born legally blind, this further loss of vision, refocused him to pursue something more meaningful. Something creative. After picking up the guitar to learn one song ("Stop This Train" by John Mayer) he began writing his own songs and music has changed his life.
He is regularly performing at shows throughout California and is a songwriter in residence at Crema Coffee in San Jose. With music that is influenced by many contemporary artists like Adele, Sam Smith, Ed Sheeran, he aims to inspire others and make universal songs that touch on themes of love, isolation, and hope.

Divine Intervention strikes once again at 7p PT on KDRT. This week, we plan on some brand new tunes, including the latest RAWK from '68 and Shred Flintstone, new pop from Palehound, and some wonderful electronic weirdness via new releases from Com Truise and JNTHN STEIN. Our Vinyl Vespers feature looks groovy but is not quite as obscure as we might like. We'll give it a spin during our weekly worship, see where it takes us, hope for the best. Do tune in.
