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.

January 30 – Favorites of 2012 (705)

Every morning is a fresh beginning,
Listen my soul to the glad refrain.
And, spite of old sorrows
And older sinning,
Troubles forecasted
And possible pain,
Take heart with the day and begin again.

 Happy New Year from Great River Radio!  We are coming back to you this afternoon with our favorites (we aren’t going to use the word ‘best’ for this list) from 2012.  It was a very good year for music, in our opinion.  From a long list of great songs, we’ve come up with a playlist that you’re going to love.

If you’ve been listening and paying attention to GRR in the last year, you’ll know many of these songs, but I guarantee that you’ll hear some things that will be new to you, as well.  Nick Waterhouse and Australia’s Tame Impala will kick the show off with energy and their neo sounds of R&B and psychedelia.  Trampled By Turtles, The Pines and Chastity Brown will represent the many local artists who had a good year in 2012.  The old masters will be represented by Leonard Cohen, Greg Brown, Dr. John and Mr. Bruce Springsteen.  Young artists we saw and loved last year are on this list, too, including Patrick Watson, John Fullbright and Field Report. And if you are expecting Dylan, here is what I’ll do for you:  two of the best Dylan covers I’ve ever heard.

I think you’ll like this show – and let me know what you loved in 2012 that I missed.

This afternoon on Great River Radio, coming to you from the University of St. Thomas’ KUST.

Tune in live, or listen later on the blog.

May 16 – Possums and Dandelions (616)

Image

Follow, follow the sun 
And which way the wind blows
When this day is done
Breathe, breathe in the air
Set your intentions
Dream with care
Tomorrow’s a new day for everyone
A brand new moon and brand new sun 

When you feel life coming down on you like a heavy weight
When you feel this crazy society adding to the strain
Take a stroll to the nearest water’s edge, remember your place
Many moons have risen and fallen long, long before you came

So which way is the wind blowing
What does your heart say
So follow, follow the sun
And which way the wind blows
When this day is done

Xavier Rudd “Follow the Sun”

It is the final week of this academic year on campus, and students are working through their exams and final projects – they are busy and tired and sleep deprived, surviving on coffee.  At the same time, the weather has been spectacular and all living things seem to be happy – especially the plants, but also the dog who wants to spend the day dozing in the green grass.  On a morning walk today, Finn noticed a mother opossum and several little ones squirming around her while she sat stone still.  A bit later, we passed an eagle sitting in a tree and staring at the river, looking for fish, I guess.  The scent of lilacs is heavy in the air and the dandelions have passed from bright yellow to puffs of seeds drifting off in the breeze.  We are now heading into the lightest, brightest part of the year with long warm days ahead.

As we walked, we listened to this new song from Australia’s Xavier Rudd, who is coming out with a new record next month.  I decided to do another Great River Radio this afternoon, one more in this odd season of irregular programs.  I’ve got a list of new stuff that has been accumulating over the last few weeks.  Since the last show, we’ve travelled to California, heard a few musical acts, and worked hard to wind down the year.  We’ll celebrate the last days of school with music from Katie Herzig, Trampled by Turtles, Anais Mitchell, Rufus Wainwright and Justin Townes Earle.  Have you seen the Volvo commercial with Laura Gibson’s version of the old Sam the Sham hit “Little Red Riding Hood”?  She’s now released that and we’ll share it with you.  We’ll do a gospel set – just because – with music from The Civil Wars, The Brothers Frantzich, Iris Dement and Delaney and Bonnie.

We’ll also include a set of neo and real soul – from The Alabama Shakes, Nick Waterhouse and The Staple Singers.

I think you’ll like it – listen while you work, or check in later and listen from the blog.  And enjoy the day!
