Broken Glass to perform live in the studio on Listening Lyrics, Friday, Dec. 20 at 4 p.m.

I cannot think of a better way to feature these young artists as Listening Lyrics' last show of 2019. 

Broken Glass, formed in December 2018, are 8th-graders who practice in their drummer’s garage. Performing at small gigs and school events, the band started by playing cover songs, and was soon creating originals. They play a variety of genres, but most often stay within the wider rock style. The members are Alexander (keyboard/vocals/guitar), Alden (guitarist),  Everett (bass), and Oscar (drums).

Thankful for our Listeners, Programmers and Community's Generous Support

As we look back upon a busy fall, we are grateful for the generosity shown during our 2019 Rootstock fundraising events. We greatly appreciate the MANY listeners who donated, for this support is truly what allows us to continue to produce our 24/7 local broadcast and streaming.

We celebrated our 15th anniversary at a diverse array of community venues, and were thrilled to make new friends, and to reconnect with longtime partners. In mid-November, we hit the "Grassroots Trail" with events that included Berryessa Brewing in Winters with The Muddy Waders, The Barn and Pantry Tuesday Open Mic Night in Dixon with Hattie Craven, 2nd Wednesday Jazz Night at the Root of Happiness Kava Bar in Davis, a special KDRT benefit at Woodstock's Pizza with The West Nile Ramblers, and concluded in Woodland at Sunday Sessions at Blue Note Brewing. Each venue is a hub for communities to gather and support their local musicians.

High Country Music Radio December 10th @ 11:00 a.m. Pacific

Musicians wrote songs and sang of passenger and freight trains, reflecting their affinity with the railroad as a way of  travel and freedom. Trains are the theme on this week’s High Country Music Radio (Tuesday at 11:00 a.m. to Noon) with Rusty featuring traditional and contemporary songs of the railroad. 

Join us tomorrow as we listen to Leon Russell with the Newgrass Revival, Jim and Jessie, Greensky Bluegrass, Dale Ann Bradley, Arlo Guthrie, a bluegrass version of the Monkee's "Last Train to Clarksville" and more  for an hour of song about those long steel rails.

The Power of Music on Listening Lyrics, Friday, Dec. 6, 2019, 4 p.m.

Let's all play along. This week's show will have two guests: Sue from Southern California, and David from Portland, Ore., and both will answer the questions below. We will play the songs and talk a bit with them about our favorite topic: MUSIC. Let's see what they come up with. 

“Where words leave off, music begins.”  ― Heinrich Heine

1. Has a particular song ever moved you into action?

2. Has a particular song ever moved you to tears?

3. If you could send one song into space for beings to hear in the far distant future, what song would that be?

4. What is your go-to “feel good”song?

5. What song would you like played at your celebration of life?

This broadcast will also be streamed live on www.kdrt.org
