Christmas Special 2015

We’ve got some holiday roots music featuring new and old. Join Dave Stroud for Deeper Roots Radio: A Century of America’s Music for music from the outskirts of R&B, rock, blues, country, and pop. We’ll hear holiday cheer in the form of blues with Leroy Carr, Blind Blake, and Lloyd Glenn; contemporary pieces from Nick Lowe, Raul Malo, and The Boxmasters; confectionary pop from The Andrews Sisters, Eileen Barton, and The Beach Boys; and some of the very best R&B from Ray Charles, Betty Carter, and Amos Milburn. There’s a large helping of country pop and blues including Groovey Joe Poovey & The Big ‘D’ Boys, The Living Sisters, and (of course) Elvis. Two hours of Christmas cheer on a hump day Wednesday evening on the voice of West Sonoma County! You can follow it here:

There She Goes – KOWS 12/16/15

There She Goes
There She Goes

West County has seen it’s first consistent (and consecutive) days of rain and boy did we need it. El Nino looks to be making some waves. We’ll be making some waves this week on our Wednesday night foray into the past century of America’s music. We’ll hear new music from the Oxford American Georgia music issue, as well as a good share of early country, some Stephen Foster (by the Hamilton County Ramblers), and some Jelly Roll Morton. There will be a few local performers to sweeten the mix: Kevin Russell, Carl Hendel & Eddie Meisse, and an alumni of Montgomery High School in Santa Rosa…Dan Hicks. Tune in for music that keeps on giving.

Roots of Doo Wop

Roots of Doo Wop
Roots of Doo Wop

The early fifties brought the dawn of a musical form that became popular with a younger crowd although it was simply a version of a vocal harmony form born in the early century, if not long before. The street corner harmonies were a big hit as this new form of rhythm called ‘doo-wop’ saturated the top 40 R&B (and mainstream) airwaves. But the influences themselves had huge followings. We’ll hear from some of the early gospel inspirations like the Heavenly Gospel Singers as well as the vocal groups who were dominant in the form’s lineage: The Ink Spots, The Mills Brothers, and The Ravens. We’ll also hear from the groups who introduced ‘doo wop’ as we know it in the early fifties.

Main Street
Main Street

A bit of a celebration is in order. We will be broadcasting live from the new KOWS studios located in downtown Sebastopol with a playlist that scours the last century of America’s music for relevant sounds and themes that relate:  songs of settling into home, saying goodbye,  moving on, going west (or east, that is), and ‘getting gone’. We’ll feature The Cats & The Fiddle, local favorites Markus James and Doug Blumer & The Bohemian Highway, “Little” Jimmy Dickens, and a host of others who welcome us into our new home on Gravenstein Highway…or, as it is formally known hereabouts, Main Street.
