Papa Come Quick

Friday morning free form sounds from the Cherry Street Historic District of Santa Rosa, California. We’ve been doing this Deeper Roots thing for almost nine years and, if you’re a regular, you’ll know that Dave’s always itching for a free form collection of sounds to complement the targeted shows that are featured weekly. This week we’ll be rolling out some Bill Kirchen, Dave Van Ronk, Ricky Nelson, Annisteen Allen, and Ethel Merman…to name a few. Blues, country, doo wop, rhythm & blues, gospel, and jazz all bundled up for your late spring listening enjoyment while sequestered for health and safety. Tune in on your FM if you’re local at 92.5 or stream us at kowsfm.com/listen.

Devil In Me

Dark days with the devil. Self-centered, morally lacking, and incapable of empathizing with human kind. Sound like someone you know? This morning’s show finds us down in the hole where Satan never sleeps and where darkness pervades. There’s a very wide range of topics in our show, including the harnessing of the atom, the soul of man, and the valley where Jordan slices across the heart. Hillbillies from hell, a trip to St. James Infirmary, the lion’s den, and the belly of the whale are all to be seen with tracks from Brother Claude, the Jordan River Boys, The Doors, El Radio Fantastique, and Otis Spann in a show that is certain to have you taking stock of yesterday, today, and tomorrow as we make this social distancing a not-so-transient fixture in our lives. Balance this theme against the sun shining bright on a Spring morning in Sonoma County.

More Murder Ballads

In our Friday morning episode, we’re revisiting the traditional form of the murder ballad and we’ll also take some liberties with some more modern takes from the likes of Tom Waits, Gillian Welch, and Nick Cave. In the traditional form we’ll measure centuries-old cultural aberrations with the stories of gamblers, ramblers, and murdering misogynists that peppered the landscapes of country gospel, Appalachian folk, and urban alleyways. Frankie, Johnny, Stack-O-Lee, William Zanzinger, and Ellen Smith are just a few of the players in today’s show. Join Dave Stroud for a journey through tradition this Friday evening on Community Radio for Sonoma County.

That Mean Old Clock

Watching that pendulum swinging to and fro, we share both our sorrows and our joy in this shelter-in-place situation we’ve found ourselves in. And music. We share music. There is also that ticking and tocking of the clock as time passes; slowly for some and too fast for others. As they say…the days pass slowly and the years just fly right by us…and that was before we found ourselves in isolation. This week’s Deeper Roots show is all about the time factor, specifically growing older with each breath and minute. But, it’s certainly better than the alternative. Join Dave Stroud for another Friday morning on Deeper Roots with music going as far back as 1932 (The Carter Family) and a more recent release from Orthophonic Joy and The Church Sisters…all reflecting on the passing of time and growing old. It’s a theme that is universal, crossing all generations, faiths, and political persuasions. Tune in for reflection on a Friday evening.
