Live DiRT at ArtAbout with Doc Tari - Sep 8

Join the KDRT Live DiRT crew for September's 2nd Friday ArtAbout with one-man band Doc Tari, broadcasting live from the Armadillo Music stage in downtown Davis, September 8, starting at 6:30 p.m. sharp-ish. Doc Tari draws inspiration from New Orleans buskers, driving out feel-good rhythms on foot-pedal drums, guitar, and harmonica, singing songs that track the roots of American music through the annals of country, blues, gospel, and folk. Come on down to Armadillo for the live show, or if you truly can't make it downtown, tune in for the live broadcast, only on KDRT, where the grass roots grow!

Divine Intervention Strikes - Aug 21

This week's edition of Divine Intervention strikes with a slate of new rock/pop from the likes of Algiers, Cage the Elephant, Red Baraat, and Teenage Bottlerocket, as well as some loveliness en Español from Lila Downs. There will be other genres. There will be an obligatory eclipse-related song. And there will be Vinyl Vespers as pictured—a recording made to be funny that may have decidedly missed the mark. Guess we'll see (or hear) this evening, 7-9p PT, only on KDRT. More info and replays here on the program page.

Divine Intervention Strikes - Aug 14

You can see from the thumbnail that this is going to be an especially challenging Vinyl Vespers service, and so pat yourself on the back in advance for tuning in to Divine Intervention. The rewards will be great--including new and old rock, pop, and otherwise--live this evening, 7-9p Pacific, only on KDRT, where those grass roots (and apparently rose petals) grow.

Divine Intervention Strikes - Aug 7

This week's edition of Divine Intervention is breaking the rules for Vinyl Vespers. First of all, we pretty much all know this "artist" on sight. Second, the image is a lie -- we did not spring for the "digitally remastered" [good-goddess-why?] edition. Third, we *may* play more than one track if the mood strikes. So there. Other than that, there will be indescribeable new rock/pop and other sundry goodness. Tune in this fine Monday evening, 7-9p PT, only on KDRT-FM.

Divine Intervention Strikes - July 31

It's a who-knows-what-the-heck's-gonna-happen kinda night on Divine Intervention -- so be prepared to buckle up, go with the flow, and [mix in some vague and also unrelated metaphor here]! There will be new music, and there will be rock, but WHICH new music and WHAT rock is unknown. What IS known is that Vinyl Vespers is breaking ranks and [insert another metaphor!] tonight: We'll hear an artist we probably all recognize, at least by name -- he's just too divine to dismiss. Tune in Monday eve, starting at 7 pm, only on KDRT!
