Listening Lyrics Takes A Time Out

Dear listeners:  KDRT has over 35 volunteer radio hosts with a variety of programs. Many of which have guests. The studio is small and microphones are shared. Due to the CoronaVirus, for the next two weeks, all Listening Lyrics new shows have been cancelled. We will asses the situation at that time.

Thank you for understanding.

High Country Music Radio Alt Country and Bluegrass

Country, blues and old time music tell a story of hurt and pain and the struggles we deal with, an expression of life experiences, good and bad.

When current events seem overwhelming, sanctuary can be found within our music and friendships. The playlist on this week’s High Country Music Radio will feature Americana country and bluegrass artists such as Emmylou Harris, The Lowest Pair and Ward Davis, and songwriters such as Guy Clark, who offer a reflective, more melancholy, tone.

Listening Lyrics hosts Donut Exchange, live in the studio, Friday, March 6, 2020, at 4 p.m.

Donut Exchange is a folk group based in both Davis and in Berlin, Germany. Members Anya Sturm, Obin Sturm, and Emma Ware grew up playing traditional old-time, bluegrass, and Irish fiddle music. They blend the three styles on their debut album, Any Place Is Home, with 11 original tracks. The album, started from transatlantic voice memos, features a warm blend of strings, percussion, utensils, and the occasional bagpipes. Recorded in December 2019, during the only week when the bandmates were on the same continent, it captures the magic and charm of sleepless nights spent playing tunes with the people you love.

This program will also be streamed live on kdrt.org
