Live Tracks

 Live Tracks features a wide range of music, from early '60s rock and rockabilly, to folk, blues, bluegrass, jazz and beyond. The program frequently airs songs from local performances recorded here in Davis. Live Tracks began broadcasting on KDRT on Sept. 30, 2004, and has produced 625 unique programs as of July 2021.  [To be honest, Live Tracks is rather odd.  Just sayin'...]

Live Tracks for 7:00pm on Jul 1st, 2021

  Three performances make up this program.  The first is Me & Him (Kurt Roggli and Martin Lewis) from December of 2016.  Next is Misner and Smith with special guest Josh Yenne from May of 2014.  The second hour features the Mendocino Quartet (Steven Bates, David Hayes, Gwyneth Moreland and Gene Parsons). circa 2018.

   Distinctive harmonies are what this program is all about.  Instrumental guitar duo Me & Him play their Martin guitars so fluently that two guitars sound, at times, like three or four.  Wonderful rich songs, some steeped in the history of Wales. 

  Josh Yenne provides additional support to the creative folk songs of Misner and Smith.  A real treat for those who are well versed in the songs of this fabulous duo.

  The songs of the Mendocino Quartet feature four part harmonies.  Each vocalist takes a turn at singing lead, depending on the song (and who wrote it!).

Ahh, there goes the Sat. Question about lead pencils and tin cans. I KNOW THIS. I listen to Thur. Show so here it is Sat. And I have the answer. Really proud of my self to be so up on trivia. Of course you can only ask me on Sat. questions I heard on Thur.

Love this show. So much prep work goes into this show to make it so special. Thank you.

If you've ever paid taxes, catch the 3-minute segment on the April 17, 2014 Live Tracks show. It begins about 22:45 in from the start of the show.

Thanks, Jim for capturing the evening at the Odd Fellows.  I enjoyed listening tonight.  The Archetypes' set consisted of the following tunes:

1.  Breath Bridge

2. Thrift Shopping

3. Slow Down Boreas

4. Two for Benedetto

5. Hypothesis

6. Beautiful You

7. The Art of War

8. Heartlights

Jim, I missed Richie and the Yolos but the recording of Kurt and friend sounds exquisite. They were amazing. I'll check out the archieves for us. Thanks so much for calling tonight. 

 

Hi Jim - listening to your show up in Portland, OR -
Pieter

Great show...had to listen to Monday's replay.

As I suspected, long time listeners of Live Tracks are tough, seasoned musicologists, not intimidated even by Capt. and Tennille. Listen up this Thursday while I raise the musical bar for fundraising...Thanks for listening! Jim

Just wanted to thank "Butane" James for the excellent broadcast from 1/28 on Live Tracks. Radio simply does not get any better than that!

For those of you who had the pleasure to listen to Live Tracks from 2/5/09...Jim's Beatles show, had the opportunity to hear radio at it's best.

No matter if you were sending out a signal from New York, Chicago or San Francisco, nothing could have been any better than this edition of Live Tracks.

Anyone who knows anybody that believes they know and enjoy the sound of early Beatles should give a listen.  Magnificent!
