Routes and Branches Play List 10/24/09

The fall new music season is in full swing with a number of new CD's coming into the station lately. New music to R&B this week includes Trampled By Turtles, Willy Porter, Chuck Prophet, Jason Eady, Coby Brown, Danny Barnes and Chip Taylor. Each one of these artists are putting out great new music and making my favorites of the year list quite long. More on that later.

Next week we start our fall on-air pledge drive at KRVM. It is important that everyone who listens to KRVM contribute what they can to help keep us operating 24 hours a day everyday. The completion of our transmitter upgrades this year have made our signal stronger and clearer. KRVM sounds better than it ever has and it couldn't have been done without the help from our loyal listeners. Please contribute today!!

Routes and Branches Play List 10/17/09

I want to thank Shotgun Majors for filling in for me last week while I was doing business at our local Home Improvement Show.

I did have the chance to see some great music over the past 2 weeks. It started out with Chris Smither followed by Old Crow Medicine Show, a little Pert Near Sandstone and finished out with Lyle Lovett and John Hiatt for an intimate show at the Hult Center. John Hiatt is one of my alltime favorite Song writers with Lyle Lovett coming in at a close second. Their acoustic solo performance together was a very special evening, with each of them performing many favorites. I started today's show with the the songs they each opened the show with.
I'm also looking forward to seeing David Bromberg and his wife's group The Angel Band at the WOW hall this coming Tuesday. I went to Portland to see them last year when they started touring in support of the Angel Band's new album "With Roots And Wings". I'm so glad that they save me the drive this year and came to Eugene too.

Routes and Branches Play List 10/03/09

Chris Smither was in Eugene yesterday so I started and ended my show featuring some of his songs. He played every single song that I had picked at his concert last night at the Jaqua concert hall. A wonderful evening of music and story telling.

For the rest of my show I had printed out the program guide to the Hardly Strictly Bluegrass festival which is taking place this weekend in San Fransisco's Golden Gate park, and played all of the artists that I would be tying to see if I was there. There were so many that I could only fit a single track from each into my 2-hour show. I'm sure I would have the same difficulty trying to see all the same acts over the course of the 3-days. Maybe I will make it next year.
