Listening Lyrics Jul 19th, 2013 with RITA HOSKING

Rita Hosking sings about forest fires but it is her that is setting the folk music scene on blaze.This hour Rita shares some stories with us and sings some of her songs.  Her new CD "Little Boat" debut as #7 on the folk music charts and her single "Parting Glass" as #3.

LITTLE BOAT is a jewel of a CD. Stripped down to only the essentials gives her voice an extraordinary platform to shine. Elegant and sophisticated with a inspirational message.

Mixing music and clay - thats on tap this week. Listen here for show

Rebecca was initially inspired to work in clay while living in 
Spain in the late 1980's. Eventually taking a wheel-throwing 
class at the UC Davis Craft Center in 1995 and covered in clay ever since. She was further inspired to create and explore different ways of using and decorating clay during several wonderful return visits to Spain.

Pieter!!! I was listening to few of your shows today.
First- this is high quality stuff!!!! I was blown away!!! great music, great interviews, great ideas for the show. I'm a fan!!!!
Secondly- You two have great communication there. 
Third- for me, it is just brilliant to be able to listen to you two. Your voice sounds so familiar. It feels like sitting with you in the same room. You sound so calm and I just LOVE it.

Mesmerizing show Pieter. Gave me that moment of pause and allowed me to begin wrapping my arms around music and lyrics which will let calm settle in. An excellent compilation of wonderful words and sounds. Thanks.  

Love the new dimension and the seamless, feed-each-other, dimension it gives the program's back and forth banter. Great music selection and accompanying background info this week!

So good, so listenable, so smooth,and exactly my favorite style in music. Thanks Pieter and Alex.


What can I say; I LOVED THIS SHOW!

Additionally, I'll let you in on a secret, this was the first time that I listened to, not one, but two complete Rap songs -- and enjoyed them. :)


Loved the show and thoroughly enjoyed Cory. Tell him what Michael J Fox once said; "I am careful not to confuse excellence with perfection. Excellence, I can reach for; perfection is God's business."  He was excellent.

the October 3rd show was way too short. What a mellow and superbly classy hour that just blew by. Thanks!


Kind words from a kind brother - thank you

Underground Grandpa rocks!!

Thanks ed
