Oct. 26 – Lucky Now (604)

I don’t remember were we wild and young
All that’s faded into memory
I feel like somebody I don’t know
Are we really who we used to be
Am I really who I was
               Lucky Now (Ryan Adams)

Ryan Adam’s is now about 36, but it is never too early to start reminiscing about being wild and young, is it?  In fact, Adams has been very prolific and has had lots of experiences as a musician, including a fairly long absence from music as he coped with hearing loss and dizziness as a result of Meniere’s disease.  So he can reminisce.

We’re going to reminisce a bit, too.  Brian just finished “Life” – Keith Richard’s recent sprawling autobiography and that has made us think of the Rolling Stones.  We’ll be taking a look back at their music and some newer interpretations of their music, including from Ryan Adams himself.

We’ll also give you a taste of the new Tom Wait’s cd – his first set of new songs since 2004.  As the NYT said this weekend, “Mr. Waits is acclaimed as an American marvel: a songwriter who can be smart and primal, raucous and meticulous, ethereal and earthy, bleak and comical…”  We’re going to hear “Last Leaf” from this record which was released last week.

Tune in for music from a hot and energetic young band from Alabama, the Alabama Shakes, along with Lana Del Rey, M83, Shelby Lynne (playing the Dakota tomorrow night), Laura Marling (credited by Ryan Adams as inspiring his return to songwriting), Dessa and others.

Whether you listen live today or to the archived edition, we look forward to doing this show for you this afternoon!

Oct. 27 – Everything is Broken

Broken cutters, broken saws
Broken buckles, broken laws
Broken bodies, broken bones
Broken voices on broken phones
Take a deep breath, feel like you’re chokin’
Everything is broken
(Bob Dylan)

Do you ever get into one of those ruts where everything you own starts to break down? A broken fan belt on your car is suddenly followed by a broken dishwasher. A few days later you discover a hole in your roof and a broken juice glass tucked behind the couch. Finger nails split as winter nears and knees start to ache. Spirits break.

Broken things tend to collect like steel shards to a magnet. How do we disrupt – or break – that cycle of brokenness? Well, if you’re Great River Radio, you ward off the “broken vibe” with music – Delta Blues, sultry ballads, gospel and indie pop. There are hundreds of songs that try to heal the broken, and we’ve culled some of the best for our show today – tunes from Broken Bells, Girls, Jordan Zevon, Jeremy Messersmith and R.L. Burnside.

We’ll also have some excellent new music you’re not going to want to miss from Lloyd Cole, Rogue Valley, Drive-By Truckers, Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr., Jens Lekman and Badly Drawn Boy. And how about a rare cut from The Rolling Stones’ newly remastered “Exile on Main Street” release? We’ll spend a little time talking about the recent Sufjan Stevens concert. How do you feel about his recent release, “The Age of Adz”? Seeing Sufjan live might change your perspective.

You might be asking yourself, “Guys, how can you fit so much music into 90 minutes?!” Well, we won’t deny that there’s a lot of music magic involved. The Great River Radio staff prides itself on delivering almost too much content to consume in one sitting. Are you ready to listen?
