Gene Parsons, who played and sang in the Byrds for most of the final years of the 1960s/70s rock band, talks about that experience and more on the next edition of “Davisville,” a public affairs program on Davis community radio station KDRT 95.7 FM.
Program host Bill Buchanan ends each Davisville with a song performed by a musician who has played in Davis. On this program he takes a closer look at one of those musicians, Parsons, who performed at the Palms in south Davis in 1987. Parsons, 64, talks about his music, life on the road, his StringBender invention for guitars, his advice to musicians starting out, and what he’s doing next.
Davisville is recorded and engineered at the Davis Media Access studios on Fifth Street. The 30-minute program, new every other week, airs Mondays at 5:30 p.m. and Wednesdays at 10:30 a.m.
