Mac Arnold & Friends INTERVIEW Pt1

Apr 28, 2010

Interview with Mac Arnold & Friends in Studio B on April 28, 2010.


Mar 4, 2010

Roland Dierauf's interview with The Watts in Studio B on March 4, 2010.

This segment, from Jan. 18, 2008, is part of our Vintage Cafe series, in which we revisit some of our best studio performances. Here, we remember an Americana legend and drummer for the '60s rock group The Band, Levon Helm, who died in 2012.

Levon Helm first picked up a guitar at age 8, but soon switched to drums. Though best known as the famous drummer for the rock group The Band, Helm continued to influence music with his collaborations and solo works.
