March 26 (809) Spring Breaking

Play this show

If I had wings like Noah’s dove
I’d fly up the river to the one I love
Fare thee well, my honey, fare thee well

            “Fare Thee Well ” (Dink’s Song)

 

Just a quick reminder that Great River Radio will air this afternoon with an outstanding playlist of mostly new music from artists like the Augustines and the American Authors, Craig Finn, William Fitzsimmons and Nick Waterhouse.  My favorite new band Lucius might even get two songs played this afternoon.  I’ll do a segment of songs from movies (Inside Llewyn Davis – quoted above, Nebraska and All Is Lost) and a couple of covers, including a beautiful one sung by a seven foot sad clown.

And this, perhaps more notable announcement.  After eight years and 171 shows as of today, I’ve decided to pull the plug on Great River Radio after this semester.  I’d like to do at least two more shows, and will make them special.  This has been a labor of love and a creative activity for me all these years, but I’ve decided to turn my creative energies in other directions.  More on all of this later this spring.

For now, I hope you can listen this afternoon as you take care of business, or check it out later on the blog.

Feb. 15 – Old Ideas (611)

We are in the opening weeks of the busy spring semester on campus, and it has been a couple of months since Great River Radio has been on the air with music for you.  Dan will remedy that today with a show this afternoon.  Check in for morning music from Canada’s The Barr Brothers (I’m A Beggar in the Morning”) and twilight music from our friends Over The Rhine (“Favorite Time of Light.”)  The late and great Etta James will be represented by “Misty Blue” from her final cd, released just weeks before her death.  Wye Oak, an indie folk duo from Baltimore, is on the list with “Civilian”, the title tune from their 2011 cd.  Ireland’s Lisa Hannigan has just released her second cd and we’ll play “Knots” (uke lovers will want to hear this.)

I’ll also have a number of tunes from the massive “Chimes of Freedom” collection of Dylan covers.  CoF is a benefit project for Amnesty International, and the complete set is four discs – 70-some songs.  Now, anytime there is a release of that size (in fact, on any tribute album) there are going to be hits and misses.  I do think that Bob Dylan does his own songs just fine.  At the same time, there are a few tracks in this collection that are worth hearing – I’ll be playing what I think are some notable inclusions by Diana Krall, Steve Earle, Queens of the Stone Age, Billy Bragg and Grammy champion Adele.

Finally, a track from the upcoming Springsteen cd, brand new music from Ingrid Michaelson and Craig Finn and more.

Tune in live around 4:15 this afternoon, or check the blog for the show after I get it loaded up around 6:30.
