Hey, Great River Radio is back … and at a whole new time!
Has the whole world changed in the last few weeks? It seems so. Since the last GRR there has been a seismic shift in our culture that has apparently extended to the entire planet. Young people have a hero again and old people have rediscovered their hope. Our country has friends and supporters again throughout the world.
Alas, there is much to talk about, but GRR is about music. We’ll be back tomorrow with plenty of new songs and, perhaps, a comment or two about what Brian and Dan have been doing in the last two weeks.
This is going to be a brief but important reminder: Great River Radio is moving to a new time. Starting tomorrow, Great River Radio will be broadcasting live on Tuesdays from 4-6 p.m. We’ve made the change to accommodate family schedules and in hopes to allow some of you who are winding down your work days to listen from your offices. For those of you who will not be able to listen live, please remember that our shows will continue to be archived at greatriverradio.wordpress.com, and you will be able to listen there. We’ve learned that many of our listeners hear the show from that site after the fact, so you should not be adversely affected by this schedule change.
We apologize for any inconvenience, but hope that you will be able to hear the show at some point during the week, if not during the new time slot.
For now, we send you our best wishes for the new year, which seems to be bringing us a whole new world – and we hope you can listen tomorrow afternoon as we bring you new music from Morrissey, Sufjan Stevens (finally!), The Decemberists, Antony and the Johnsons, Andrew Bird, Bruce Springsteen, and a few tunes that capture the mood of the last couple of weeks for each of us. We’ll be playing something from M. Ward’s upcoming release, as well. And we’ll be celebrating the long-awaited reunion of Gary Louris and Mark Olson (formerly playing together as the Jayhawks).
