Dead Wax

Tune in for a vinyl-centric exploration of Americana, from classic country to roots rock and blues. Each Dead Wax episode features a current artist, diving into the roots of their music as we thumb through our record stacks. 

Music programs are only online for two weeks after they are broadcast.

Dead Wax for 5pm on Sep 30th, 2015

This week we feature the brand new album from JD McPherson, Let The Good Times Roll. This album has a great old shool soul feel to it. Rooted somewhere between R&B artists like Fats Domino and Little Richard and late 1950's/early 1960's era Rock, JD is obviously a student of vintage sounds. However, his music is not just reproduction of older sounds, he brings along with him an assortment of modern influences. JD is a former middle school teacher in Oklahoma, but was relieved of his duties in 2011 when he shared an album from the Punk band, Bad Brains, with his students in their mixed tape club. We'll play 3 tracks from this excellent album, which is his sophmore release. We'll also hear from John Mayall & The Bluesbreakers, The Everly Brothers, Ellmore James, Otis Redding, Etta James and others as we explore similar sounds.
