Silver Nine Volt Heart Salutes Grassroots Radio Broadcasters on 16th Birthday for KDRT - Sep 24th, 2020

Welcome to the 145th edition of Silver Nine Volt Heart.  In this special broadcast - the 16th birthday of KDRT - you will hear the sounds from a wide-range of genres spanning from the jazz of Ella & Louis, Herb Alpert and Stan Getz,  to Americana, Folk, Country and beyond from Chris Hillman, Peter Rowan, Richard and Linda Thompson, to some of our beloved local bands like The Nickel Slots, Richie Lawrence and The Yolos, and Webster, Walton, Edwards.  The song selection for this show is based upon a sampling of what you might hear from our over 25 locally produced programs and the unique expertise of our local volunteer DJs.  Host Rodriguez also reads the words from over a dozen KDRT programmers who responded to an email this week asking them what it means to be involved with Davis' grassroots community radio.

Greetings and Salutations Rodriguez,

Thanks for playing The Grateful Dead. As a dead person myself, I could really relate to the sentiment of Playing In The Band. In the end, each of us has a particular note to play in the web of life. Your repeated dedication to The Dead and bygones long ago, keep you qualified to remain amongst the living as a true Champion! May Your Bones Rest Easy In The KDRT!
