Host Joe Kendrick brings in a fresh batch of new music for you, including jazz, funk, bluegrass, Americana and Celtic, with a Segue Of The Week going back to British guitar legend Bert Jansch’s 1979 album Avocet. DJ For A Day sees our own Stephanie Webb and Kim Henson prepping us for our Fall Fund Drive in a conversation highlighting what weeks (make that months) of preparation go into the event, and what is new for our lineup of thank-you gifts this time around. Many of these songs featured in the episode are on our thank-you discs available during the fund drive as well.

In this episode, a bluegrass legend meets an up and coming regional act, a punk rocker of days gone by finally gets his solo debut, roots music stars mingle with Americana expatriates, and DJ For A Day returns, this time talking with Molly Kummerle of the band Paper Tiger about being a DJ -- not on the radio, but at a party, a “Molly Parti” to be exact. There’s also the Segue of The Week, which matches a lady Australian rocker with a post-punk classic.

Playlist:

In this episode, the new tunes range from singer/songwriter to latin jazz to americana.  Joe features music from Aaron Burdett, Duende Libre, and Dustbowl Revival.  Joe also talks with Jason Lineberger about the art of the record review.
