Josh & Amy Anne Kräge on Listening Lyrics, Recorded, Apr 19th, 2019

Listen now to the replay

“Husband and wife singer/songwriter duo Joshua and Amy Anne Kräge had been playing music in and around Sacramento for ten years before ever even meeting, let alone playing music together.  Filling in for members of the same cover band for a private event in October 2013, their first meeting was their first practice together for their first gig together; their first date was just a few days later, and they've been playing together ever since.

     Both members of too many bands to ever be able to list over the years, Amy and Joshua found common ground in versatility.  Amy has sung and Josh has played everything from opera to Steely Dan to '90s grunge to folk pop to roadhouse blues to '50s doo-wop to Chaka Khan-approved funk and more.  Currently also working together in chameleonic Sacramento pop/funk outfit The Pressure Lounge, they decided to make Love + Honey about the lighter side of the art of music, focusing on positive message and powerful melody in both their original songs and cover material choices.

     Equipped with ears for harmonies and hearts for lifting the spirits of whoever's listening, Love + Honey strives to be the brightest spot on the speakers of the collective world.”

Animation Discussion (plus Music) with Zahra Baxi. Recorded March 15th, 2019

For the last couple of years every Friday at Davis Media Access (and right next to the KDRT studio), teens have been participating in an animation class, in a self-organised group known as the Davis Teen Animators’ Club. Their mentor is DMA's own Alex Silva-Sadder. Well, as you might have guessed, we got to know them a bit, and a few months ago I asked them to join me this Friday. So listen now to club president Zahra Baxi and Alex as they share about animation and play some of their favorite music.

hi peter,  i would like to shadow your show...so i hope it would be okay to watch you at work.  doctorvshow@hotmail.com or 608 515 2848  thanks reid.

Since this was a teaching show where I was the student - may the student share?

Screaming Jay Hawkins: His most popular song was "I put a Spell on you". But, my personal favorite and much less known was: "You Put a Spell on Me." Definitely a blast from the past.

Best recent drummers: please add Levon Helm from The Band to the list, he dramatically changed the role of the drummer in a band.

Luciano Pavarotti: He passed in 2007. However he recorded a show for PBS along with Jose Carreras and Placido Domingo titled; The Three Tenors (and as luck would have it I caught it on our local PBS statation - again - just a week ago). Magnificent!

 

Great comments Dirk - Thank you. Robert is a guy that has great musical taste - all this from a very young man. 

cheers

Definitely one fine show Pieter & Jeanne. It was hearing the eclectic mix of music which brought on a rush of memories. Notably, Phillip Glass’ “Open the Kingdom” made me think on my personal favorite Glass piece, the score to the film; Powaqqatsi. As an aside, having a grandchild with Aspergers I remembered listening to an interview with Music Critic, Tim Page who revealed that after being diagnosed as having Aspergers realized that it was Glass’ minimalist focus on each individual note/sound which had him absolutely love Glass’ works; listening by the hour and eventually seeking a career in music. At the time I heard that interview it proved to be just the right positive “punch” I needed while reflecting the future opportunities for my own grandchild.  The wonder of music is indeed powerful.

Thanks - we had fun putting it together.

Once I get all of your albums cleaned up - I'm doing a show on your collection. I think I'll call it Vinyl - one mans trash reaps another mans treasure. :)

More dobra, more acordian, more piano, more 'silky' voiced lyrics, more Richie Lawrence. Great show!

If I lived in the Davis area I'd chase these two around to every one of their gigs. What a find!

Surely this was a relaxing hour complete with great banter and music. All that was missing was for all of us sitting around with some after dinner Port and maybe a fire in the fireplace as the conversation carried on.

You and Jeanne were so right about the old 78s and their scratch bringing something special to the listening experience. The occasional totally 'dead' moments found on CDs are almost jarring.

Loved Alpert's opening & Justin's closing bumps.

Had I realized just how wonderfully mellow this show was I would have listened in the evening with a cup of caffeine free Peppermint tea and my feet up on the table. As it was, listening in the morning, it was still one I was gald I did not miss.

Just discovered that I am never too old to learn -- this week Chris Clark opened up a whole new pathway leading to a greater appreciation of and the enchantment of jazz.

Thanks for having Chris Clark on the show Pieter.
