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.
