R&B Boogie Woogie

Drop by to play along with the second of a two-part episode exploring an eclectic blend of boogie woogie, in the key of rhythm and blues. There will be enough piano pounding, toe-tapping, and slick percussion to feed the need for musical speed in our show this week. The usual suspects will keep the line moving and we’ll also bring out some old favorites including performances from Hadda Brooks, Gladys Bentley, Oscar’s Chicago Swingers, Rosco Gordon and Albert Ammons. This second episode keeps true to the sound that surfaced in the early century, blending juke joint rhythms and house party dance celebrations. Be sure to check us out on our new web site player or at the Live365 web site.

9 Volt Heart

Deeper Roots goes free form this week with some classic country and blues right alongside tradition. From Pee Wee King to Memphis Minnie and Robert “Barbecue Bob” Hicks to Chuck Wills…we’ve got the goods. We’ll fill our Friday two hours with a delightful collection of music from the past one hundred years, live from the KOWS Cherry Street Historic District in downtown Santa Rosa, California. Got some sugar, radio memories, gospel rafter-raisers, and a track from Luke the Drifter…and remember….ninety-nine and a half just won’t do when you’re listening to the radio. Which is why we give you a hundred percent here on community radio. An eclectic blend of sounds that takes you back to the little Zenith or Silvertone that you put up to your ear, driven by that two-pronged nine-volt heart. Join us for some memories.

Groove Juice Special

Not exactly sure what ‘groove juice’ is, but for the purposes of our show full of sass and novelty, we’ll just suggest you make it what you want it. It’s a whimsical, sometimes bawdy, morning collection of the past 100 years of jazz, folk, country, and pop (with a little who-knows-what-that-is thrown in).  We’ve got poodles, big feet, Ovaltine, four leaf clovers, rabbits, and tattoos included with the subject matter today. Songs that are as delectable as they are incredible. We’ve got Skeets McDonald, Robert Crumb, Mae West, Groucho Marx, Dorothy Shay (the Park Avenue Hillbilly), and a couple dozen others for your Friday morning. Oh yeah, and some Johnny Cash and Slim Gaillard as well. So tune into KRJF Community Radio this week for all you can handle.

Those Old Familiars

Quaint, sweet, nostalgic…just a few adjectives to describe today’s music. Digging into the digital bins we’ve surfaced some of the more familiar of tunes from the last century. Early century pop, country, jazz and vocal harmonies all being serenades with upbeat and good natured favorites of the Great American Songbook. We’ll hear from Fats Waller, Eddie Condon, Ted Lewis, the Sons of the Pioneers, and Blind Blake with songs that ring a true bell in the heart. Songs about lazy rivers, love letters, the lovesick blues, and Kentucky moon. Don’t let yourself get carried away as you lean in closer to the speakers. We certainly don’t want you to hurt yourself. KOWS Community radio is a connection worth making with an eclectic blend of sounds from up and down the genre expanses…streaming to planet Earth at Join us.

Bob at 80

Bob Dylan’s turning the big eight-ohhh my God! Born on May 24, 1941 “with a name that means nothing and an age that means less”, he’s being honored in Minnesota (given his boyhood home of Hibbing) with a year long celebration. But it won’t be just the state whose motto from the French translates to “The star of the North”, but a good part of world will also be taking part. While prickly and, at times, difficult to translate, his words have formed images from the metrics of gospel, protest, and a cynic’s wrath to sonnet-like love songs and dirges that would bend even the ears of T. S. Eliot or Auden. He is the bard of a generation whose metal art and endeavors in the art of whiskey underscore eight decades that spell a true renaissance man. We’ll touch on two hours of Dylan’s music this week on Deeper Roots.

There will be some vocal powerhouse sounds from Dee Dee Warwick, Jean Wells, Madeline Bell and Darrel Banks.

Willie & Friends

Willie Nelson turns 88 this month. Born during the Great Depression and raised by his grandparents, he wrote his first song at the age of seven and had his first band at the age of ten. From high school to the Air Force, then to his return home to Texas as a radio disc jockey, he was always in a band singing. In the 1950s he would write songs that would become country standards and we’ll be sharing some of them with you in today’s Deeper Roots, performed by Willie and his contemporaries. He endures just as his music does and the catalog is a legacy few parallel. We’ll hear from The Little Willies, Waylon Jennings, Faron Young, Asleep at the Wheel, and at least a dozen others performing the songs of Willie Hugh Nelson. Tune in Friday morning on KOWS.

Rolling Along

We’re going to blend all the favorites into a delicious free form stew this morning, looking to the north, south, east and west for our inspiration. Not only do we have some Otis Redding soul, but we’ve also got some traditional blendings from David Johansen, The Devil Makes Three, and some southern fried sounds from James Lee Stanley and John Hammond. A lot of our playlist makes connections: moonlight drives, Memphis tributes, and a lot about our title track ‘rolling along’. I’ve also got a little splash of Frankie Laine for inspiration along those lines. Tune in on a Sonoma County Friday morning for more from the Cherry Street Historic District and the mighty KOWS, streaming to planet earth on
