A feather’s not a bird
The rain is not the sea
A stone is not a mountain
But a river runs through me 

            “A Feather’s Not a Bird”  Rosanne Cash

A quick reminder that Great River Radio is back this afternoon with a bundle of songs for you, mostly new, but a couple of discoveries that have been spinning on my player the last four weeks.  Do you know Goldfrapp?  Do you want to hear something sexy that will warm you up on a cold winter night?  That’s all I’m going to say about that.  I’ve been digging the songwriter Peter Bradley Adams and have played him before.  He has a new record, as does the very interesting Damien Jurado, local friends Jeremy Messersmith and Erik Koskinen.  Then there will be the department of covers and remakes with Charlotte Gainsbourg doing “Hey Joe” (you’ve got to hear it) and Band of Horses doing an acoustic live at the Ryman version of “No One’s Gonna Love You” and a remastered “Comes and Goes In Waves” from Greg Laswell.

And of course, my favorite record of the year so far, Rosanne Cash’s The River & The Thread – the first track from that album will also open GRR today.  Finally, I have the first musical harbinger of spring, thanks to Mike, from the John Butler Trio.

If you live in the upper Midwest, you’re going to want to take some time to listen this afternoon or later for a break from the cold and snow and the coming storm.

I’ll be getting things going around 4:00 – listen this afternoon or later when the snow is coming down.

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.
