Live Tracks Highlights a Decade of Thursday Live! Recordings - Part 1

This week, Live Tracks focuses almost entirely on Yolo County bands, from shows recorded during the monthly Thursday Live! concert series at the Davis Odd Fellows Hall. In November 2009, Jim recorded his first Thursday Live! concert, with the Rita Hosking Trio, and the rest is history -- at an average of 9 shows per year, the total exceeds 90 two-hour concerts recorded, mixed, and broadcast on KDRT Thursday evenings during Live Tracks. This week's episode covers a lot of ground, and samples popular local bands such as The Cups, Rita Hosking Trio, The Muddy Waders, the legendary Clarence Van Hook with Cedar Seeger, The West Nile Ramblers, Bonanza King, The Davis "Odd Stars" from the 2018 British Invasion Concert, the Golden Cadillacs, and a special recording of Mumbo Gumbo from the November 2018 Fire Relief Benefit.

Live Tracks for 7:00pm on Oct 17th, 2019

  Bill Scholer talks about his music, plays the guitar and chats with Jan Peters on this episode of Live Tracks.  Among other things, Bill explains some of the back story to his unique song "Sniper."  This show contains music to supplement the interview, much of which I recorded over the years here in Davis.  As such, the show will remain available for listening past the normal two week cycle.  Peace.

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!
