Davis Music Connections

Davis has a very unique musical scene — from the Mondavi Center’s formal performances to the local clubs where bands and upcoming artists hone their craft. Local and visiting musicians  are captured by Jim Buchanan on our Live Tracks program. On Davis Music Connections, we play past Davis bands of note, along with those who are currently touring, taking a little bit of Davis to the rest of the world. We also bring you a taste of world-reknowned artists who have appeared or will appear at the Mondavi, especially the jazz performers due to Clyde's lifelong love of jazz and Latin music.  Also, we play whatever we want.

Replays Tuesday 3-4pm, Thursday 10-11am
Music programs are only online for two weeks after they are broadcast.

Davis Music Connections - October 12, 2021

Pat Fish, the driving force behind the Jazz Butcher Conspiracy, shuffled off his mortal coil last Tuesday.  He died in his sleep... 64 years old.  It's a death I can't stop thinking about.  I'm not particularly sad, just impacted.  The Jazz Butcher is one of the bands that was most influential and inspirational to me when I was learning how to write songs.  Their unpredictable style and ability to create complicatingly simple music with interesting lyrics often motivated me to keep trying.  I am so grateful to have been alive while Pat Fish was alive.  Thank you for sharing your talents, sir.  Rest in peace.

Hi Clyde:

I loved your show on July 25! All great musical selections and very diverse.  You've got a nice easy-going DJ style too. That was a fun bit with the wave sounds lapping on the shore.  Nancy/CowboyTracks
