Listening Lyrics July 12, 2013 with NAT LEFKOFF

This past weekend I was invited to see and hear some live music at a new coffee shop in town. Nat Lefkoff was the first act and he blew me away. His vocals, lyrics, stage presence and a touch of mischief made him an instant must for this show. Fortunately I had an opening so get ready to spend an hour with Nat.

Nat will also be introducing his new CD.

Listening Lyrics for 4 p.m. Friday, June 14, 2013 with EVAN DALY

This week we are thrilled to have Evan Daly with us for a whole hour. Evan is the music man of Davis. He is involved with the local music scene, including the band, THA DIRT FEELIN; he co-founded ROCKBAND UNIVERSITY, which takes teens to a new level as on-stage performers; and teaches music in Davis.

The one thing we cannot show you is Evans' awesome stage presence--he knows how to get the crowd involved while expertly slipping his fingers over his guitar, showing us some slick licks.

So join us as we hear and talk with Evan.

Listening Lyrics with Ruby and the Emeralds

This week ( March 22 at 4:00PM) we will have the pleasure of having Tim and Ruby of Ruby and the Emeralds live in the studio.

Their sound is an integration of Ruby's Tex-Mex upbringing and musical heritage and Tim's deep folk, folk-rock and rock & roll influences. 

Many of Tim's tunes were composed in Mexico and weave Spanish language elements into verses and choruses, expertly interpreted by Ruby's native tongue. Their songs have a decidedly "Americana" acoustic instrumentation while reaching out towards a "world music" orientation in their use of percussion, horns and cultural touches.

Listening Lyrics with Steve Kotarek

If you are into the live music scene in Davis/Sacramento then this is a must show. Steve Kotarek a local singer/songwriter will be my guest for the full hour.

I heard Steve a week ago and his orginal songs cast a spell.

Yes this is what community radio thrives at - featuring great local talent.

This Friday at 4:00 PM on KDRT FM 95.7 or streamed at KDRT.org
