Listening Lyrics for Sep 20th, 2013 the ANNIVERSARY show


Listen NOW to the ANNIVERSARY show

Listening Lyrics started in late August 2012 but we are not counting the few first shows (call it the learning curve). A year into the show and with 25 guests interviewed you might say Jeanne and I have found a format we are comfortable with. To put it into perspective we are having a blast. On top of that our guests are given a full hour to share their story and their talent. For me personally its like spending one hour a week on the psychiatrists couch, I leave the studio pumped up and ready for the week-end. Yep, usually head to a watering hole to down a beer or two after the show.

Listening Lyrics Sep 6th, 2013 with KEVIN WAN


If you ask anyone in Davis who influences the music scene locally, a good bet would be that the name KEVIN WAN will pop up. Yes, KEVIN spent an hour with us talking about himself, the music business and how the city of Davis responds to live events. Kevin of course is the driving force behind Sophia's Thai Kitchen so a little food talk might also pop up. 

The play list are KEVIN'S selections. Want to know what KEVIN listens to - well then - listen NOW

Listening Lyrics for 4pm on Aug 9th, 2013 with the MYSTIC BRAVES

From Los Angeles the MYSTIC BRAVES in the studio. An interesting group since their music is a mix of the today and of the past going back into the psychedelic 1960's. 4 young men creating a stir in the west coast music scene. The whole hour is dedicated to hearing this extremely talented groups music and digging into their story.

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.

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!
