[audio http://personal.stthomas.edu/drgjelten/shows/GRR706.mp3]

Just a quick note to alert you to a new GRR this afternoon – we’ve got a wonderful opener today – Tom Waits and Keith Richards singing “Shenandoah” – you’ve got to hear it!  And then, for the next hour or so, you’ll get a mix of new and old songs from Holly Williams (Hank’s granddaughter), Richard Thompson, Yo La Tengo, Trixie Whitley, Laura Nyro, Nina Simone, Jim James, Mary Gauthier, The Lone Bellow and others.

I’m excited about this one, and I think it will perk you up on this chilly February afternoon.

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

Tune in live, or listen later on the blog.

May 4 – Moody

I’ll take a quiet life…
with no alarms and no surprises,
no alarms and no surprises,
no alarms and no surprises,
Silence, silence.
–  “No Surprises” by Radiohead

Ok, if you aren’t in the business of educating the people of America, you are probably not quite as focused on these frantic weeks of May as those of us who are (in the business of educating the people of America.)  We approach commencement – or perhaps the end of fifth grade – either way, the end is nearing, and the weather being what it is, life is full of tension: study or go outside and run, read or fly a kite?  Write a paper or go dancing in the streets?  Library or a canoe on the river?  Do you yearn for escape? For surprises? For a few moments of silence?

Today, Great River Radio will reflect a variety of moods, from sadness and quiet to boisterous and lively. It’s a spring mix, like fresh new leaves in a salad.

We’ve got new music from the Hold Steady, as well as from one of our favorite 2010 releases, The National’s “High Violet”, from Sweden’s Shout Out Louds and Canada’s Caribou, from our friends Rufus Wainwright, Shelby Lynne, The New Pornographers, Regina Spektor (with her new cover of the above quoted Radiohead song) and, to celebrate the 35th anniversary of one of the greatest albums of the last…well, 35 years, a different take on “Blood on the Tracks.”

Listen: a lot of the music we are playing today is by artists who are COMING TO OUR TOWN!  This would be a great show to listen to if you are desiring to get out and hear some live music in the next few weeks.  Or if you are just in the mood for new, beautiful music to settle you down or to rev you up.  This is the place.  This is Great River Radio.

GRR is planning two more shows to wind up this, our fourth season.  Next week we’ll do another mix of fresh new music and favorites.  On May 18th, we’ll close out the year with our favorite songs from the last season.  (And then we’ll head up to the lake for the summer.)
