A Girl Named …

A sweet little theme this week, covering the female of the species from A to Z…by name. We’ll hear Alice to Zelda and Zindy Lou in today’s show. Songs that dedicate themselves to lost love, love rekindled, nostalgic walks, last dances, and songs that read like letters from the heart. We’ll hear songs written by everyone from The Everly Brothers to Bobby Fuller and Andre Previn in our show today with performances from Rose Maddox, Tom Petty, Elvis, Buddy Guy, and Vince Giordano & the Nighthawks. So why not drop in for a little chat, a little bit of a high note and E flat, and memories of the girl (or guy) that left you behind. Community radio for Sonoma County is your very best bet: KOWS-LP 92.5 FM Occidental, streaming everywhere at kowsfm.com.

The Original Spins

Deeper Roots this week digs into popular culture in the late 20th century…not so much the deeper aspect, but certainly the roots aspect. The big hits can often be traced back to the originals…sometimes in the same year, sometimes many decades before. We’ll be spinning up ‘the originals’ this week on our community radio show. We’ll take a peek at the hits and share the full blown hits including tracks from Barbie Gaye, Richard Berry, Bessie Banks, and Gloria Jones. You’ll hear the originals of James Brown’s “I Got You”, Soft Cell’s “Tainted Love”, Bill Haley’s “Rock Around the Clock”, and a couple dozen more.

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.

Ya Got Trouble

We’re going the free form route today, celebrating an eclectic blend of gospel with the likes of Clara Ward and Patsy Cline, country greats from The Sons of the Pioneers and Skeets McDonald, doo wop street corner ballads from The Sheppards and The Royals, and vocals from Nat King Cole, Ethel Waters, and John Hiatt. Oh, in addition to a few choice show tunes, we’ll touch on topics of tears, loneliness, great speckled birds, and a visit to Treasure Island with Satchmo. Quarantine offers time for reflection but it also offers time for enjoying the sounds of deeper tracks. And that’s what you get day in and day out on Community Radio for Sonoma County. Join us.

Sixties Folk Alley

The generation born from war and into war for the sake of war. There was bound to be an ideological plate shift and the epicenter could be found in and around New York City where a melting pot of sounds from Cafe Wa to Macdougall Street to Bleecker Street wafted across the country, westward on the mainstream. In our show today we’ll take a chronological run through the traditional folk that filled the decade of the Sixties. We’ll hear from The Kingston Trio, Trini Lopez, Pete Seeger, Bob Dylan, and Tom Paxton in our Friday morning show, coming to you from the heart of the Cherry Street Historic District in Santa Rosa, California. Join us for odes to little boxes, cotton fields, rain, sunshine, and windy city odes to the social and political scorn of the times.

International Women’s Day ’20

Blues, folk, and plenty of tradition. Songs that celebrate sisters in a fight for equal rights. That’s right. This is still part of the conversation in the 21st century. The right to vote. The right to equal pay. And the right to choose. There is still exclusivity beyond measure and yet gender equality is still a topic, not a reality. This week’s show stands up for International Women’s Day, held this past Sunday, March 8th, around the world. Deeper Roots digs deep for soul from Aretha, Nina, and Betty Wright, blues from Lucille Bogan  and Bessie Smith, and fresh sounds from Amy Rigby, TLC, and the Secret Sisters on a Friday morning in Sonoma County. Join us.  #EachforEqual #IWD2020.

Candy

Yes, there’s a theme this week and it’s about as sweet a theme as you’ll hear on Deeper Roots. It’s not surprising there’s a wealth of content to choose from given that it is one of the favorite attention- getters, no matter your age. Candy. Sweets. Whether that’s a nickel, a penny, or a quarter a dose. Our favorites from the convenience aisle near the cash register, there to lure you. This week’s show is not for the glucose intolerant as we walk the convenience aisle of 20th century pop, rhythm & blues, country, jazz, and vocal group odes to the sugar in all things, sweet and small, short and tall, and sticky with the syrup-sweet. We’ll hear from The Strangeloves, Elvis, Lee Dorsey, Eddie Holland, Red Foley, and Barbie Gaye in our exploration of the sugar rush.

Ants In My Pants

Whether it was Prohibition, the need for comic relief from the worst Depression our country has known, or the release from Victorian norms in the age of the flapper…something was afoot. The humor it portended is not something that we all understand in this age… but it’s worth looking at. Novelty ruled the day and every Victrola and Edison radio spilled a silly song, whether it worked from puns or light humor (pop music), corny songs that sometimes had hidden charms (country and folk), or right in your face real life naughty bits (the blues)…there was something for everyone to sample. We’ll hear from Lonzo and Oscar, Milton Brown, Frank Crumit, George Formby, and Lonnie Johnson in this week’s episode of Deeper Roots. A hoot and a holler by any other name on Sonoma County Community Radio.
