Routes & Branches 10/26/13

Local musician Jake McNeillie (left) and Company (Aaron Forman) were my first guests to perform in our new main studio. Playing tunes from his first solo album "Songs Of The Sage" which was recorded and mixed by Thaddeus Moore at our local Spout City Studios. With influences like Leonard Cohen, Johnny Cash and Tom Waits, Jake considers his songwriting to be like painting with words upon tunes that he finds inspiration from his dreams.  The tune "Wild Horse" is a beautiful example of Jake's songwriting with some dreamy slide guitar performed by Peter Perdichizzi.

Routes & Branches 10/5/13

Well it is the first weekend in October and the perfect storm of recent events have kept me once again from making my way to San Francisco's Golden Gate Park for The Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival. So, I decided to bring the festival to my listeners. Everyone I played this week was performing at HSB except for one artist who is playing here this next weekend.

This weekend was also the start of KRVM's Fall Pledge Drive. I want to thank all of the listeners who called in to my show this weekend. You all helped me reach my goals for this fundraiser. Thank you one and all. And for everyone else who is reading this blog and has not made their contribution to KRVM, please go to:  and help support true community radio by keeping shows like Routes & Branches on the air for all to enjoy!!!
