Live Tracks Looks Back

  Hello all - KDRT is seventeen years young on September 24th, and this Live Tracks relives a bit of my 17 year recording history here in Davis.  You will hear performances from the E St. Plaza, the Odd Fellows Lodge, and special one offs from the Davis Senior Center and the booth itself.

  I am pleased to celebrate seventeen years of KDRT and Live Tracks.  Thank you all for listening, and for supporting KDRT and Davis Media Access.

  Peace.

Vinyl Visions

    Lots of long playing records fill the airwaves (or internet packets of zeroes and ones) on this episode of Live Tracks.  First aired August 31, 2017, the Summer of Love (1967) was all the rage once again as we collectively licked our mental wounds following the unfortunate election of what would prove to be the worst electoral mistake collectively made by the voters of this wonderful country [the regrettable electee's name rhymed with dump].

   Miraculously sober for the entire two hours of this program, your host honored the music of an era that featured creative, emotive songwriting.  You will hear the Stone Ponies, Savoy Brown, Country Joe and the Fish and much more.  Revel in the wonders of true dynamic range (instead of highly compressed sonic train wrecks).

   Peace.  

Live Tracks, Aug. 12, 2021: Remembering Gary Lee Yoder, by talking with musicians who played with him

In tonight's special program, Live Tracks host Jim Buchanan is joined by Davisville host Bill Buchanan to play music from Gary Lee Yoder's career, and to talk with musicians who played with Gary at different stages of his life: blues great Joe Louis Walker, Jim Keylor (Oxford Circle), Dehner Patten (Oxford Circle, Kak), Chris Lockheed (Kak), Alec Palao (record producer), Dean Sylvester (Davis musician), and René Martucci & Richard Urbino (Davis musicians in Cold Shot and According to Bazooka).

The poster for a concert in Davis is courtesy of Joe Louis Walker, who's shown in the far left side of the image. Oxford Circle members Gary Yoder and Jim Keylor are on the far right. For more information, see this earlier KDRT blog post.

Hi Jim,
Your show makes for great bike commute music...regarding Daltry & Townsend "cultural" award...it was the Kennedy Center awards...presented by, you guessed it...dubya! Oh, and the Sac.
