Divine Intervention Strikes - May 8

Man, look at all the KEYS on that thing -- that sure is one big organ, and it's sure to be featured during Vinyl Vespers on Divine Intervention, airing this evening from 7 to 9p on KDRT. Extending far beyond big organs, there will be much new music -- maybe even more than last week, if that's humanly possible. We'll probably start with rock/pop but who knows where we'll end... Tune in and groove.

Album of the Week - Dengue Fever "Escape from Dragon House" - TH May 4

We can't say it better than Pitchfork did back in 2005, when Dragon House hit the shelves: "L.A.-based band fold Ethiopian touches into a Cambodian style of pop heavily influenced by classic American surf rock and Nuggets-era garage-psych." That about sums it up. Tune in, 5-6p PT, for Dengue Fever on AotW! @JessGoddesse hosts.

 

Divine Intervention Strikes - May 1

You know we didn't play enough new music last time 'round on Divine Interventionand so we'll attempt to make up for that in spades this week. We have SO much new music across genres, if you don't hear something new at least once (or so) per set, then we're not doing our divine task, and you can feel free to holler at the hostesse in the comments. Along with all this newfound fun, we'll "tempt" you with Vinyl Vespers, a'course. Do tune in, 7-9p PT, only on KDRT.

Divine Intervention Strikes - Apr 17

No holiday for the wicked -- we'll be live as usual with another edition of Divine Interventionstarring the typical mix of rock, punk, pop, funk, junk...and, of course, Vinyl Vespers, our record-store bargain-bin feature -- if you can identify the image attached to this post, you can extrapolate to determine the artist (no, not a reasonable task). OK, enough of the heavily punctuated claptrap. Just tune in Monday, April 17, 7-9p PT for all the fun your ears can hold.

Divine Intervention Strikes - Mar 27

Could we have found a higher-quality image for this week's edition of "Vinyl Vespers"? Short answer is "nope," but the good news is that it may actually be a good bargain-bin find this time around; i.e., GOOD good versus BAD good. Guess we'll have to tune in at 7p PT for Divine Intervention to find out more and to hear some rock, punk, rap, fun, a little country, and of course new music from the likes of Sleaford Mods, Sinners & Saints, Western Addiction...

Album of the Week - Stone Fox - Mar 16 at 5P

AotW this week is Stone Fox's first album, self-titled and released on Rockstar Records in 1996. Stone Fox was one of San Francisco's best 90s bands, bringing amazing energy to their recordings and much, much more to their live shows. Tune in 5-6p PT, March 16, to hear Jorjee, Yvette, Kim, Janis, and Brett rock off their (and your) socks -- or ripped nylons, as the case may be.

Divine Intervention Strikes - Lucky Mar 13

It's lucky Monday March 13th -- yes, of course that's a thing -- and we'll be celebrating with new music and more -- including this likely terrible Vinyl Vespers feature -- starting at 7p PT sharp. Even luckier, it'll feel like it's 6p because of the weekend's ridiculous clock change, so there you go. Tune in tonight for Divine Intervention -- rock, pop, miscellanea, etcetera -- on your favorite little radio station, KDRT 95.7 FM DAVIS.
