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!).

Live Tracks for 7:00pm on May 20th, 2021

  Perhaps you went to the Blue Mango?  Bill Scholer and Jan Peters sure did, and played there often.  Live Tracks plays some songs recorded in October 2019 at the site of the Blue Mango (now the Paradise Bar & Grille) with Jan Peters on vocals and harmonica, Bill Scholer (guitar/vocals), Steve O'Neill (bass), Cedar Seeger (guitar) and Bart Van der Zeeuw (drums).

  In the other hour and a half of the program, you will hear Sandy Coldiron (w/Jan Peters) from 2012 perform her haunting song "Here's To Us."  New Words (from the 1940 Webster Collegiate Dictionary) debuts as a new irregular segment on Live Tracks.  And to ease the mania filled mind that describes 21st century life in California, sit back with your cool beverage and float along with the Twanglers, Muddy Waders, Quitters, Boca do Rio and Achilles Wheel Trio.  Peace.

Live Tracks for 7:00pm on May 6th, 2021

  Today's program buffet is a tale of two main courses.  The first is a series of jams that will put you in a jazzy, fok groove, suitable for the coming summer.  About 10 minutes into the second hour, rock and roll fever takes over.  Lou Reed, R.E.M. and Neil Young to name only a few.

  Settle in to your best hi fi music listening position and age gracefully, one song at a time.  Peace.
