Shake That Thing

Gospel, Wynonie Harris, Muleskinner Blues, and Lady Soul. Fine Friday free form festivities coming your way on KOWS Community Radio, broadcasting live from the studios in downtown Santa Rosa, California. We’ve got Bobby Bare, The Boswell Sisters, Johnny Cash, David Lindley, and so much more that we’re bursting. Every month or so Deeper Roots takes a break from themes, genres, tributes, and the sometimes studied look at the last century of America’s music and kicks back in the musical easy chair, sharing a cross section of performances from some of the best artists and songwriters. Tune in for an uplifting selection this Friday evening.

Rare Female Soul

From the deeper bins of the sixties and seventies…heartbreak, cheating, and all the soul from the ladies perspective. Some powerful divas deliver the goods in this week’s episode of Deeper Roots. The songs you’ll hear were those on the chart bubble, some local, some national, but all worth a revisit. If you’ve heard more than a handful of these deep soul tracks, we’d be surprised. Join Dave Stroud as this week he’ll be sharing the sounds of Tammy Montgomery, Wendy Rene, Mitty Collier, Geraldine Hunt, and some names you’ll know including Irma Thomas, Mary Wells, and Etta James. Tune in on a Friday morning in Sonoma County for the best soul you’ve never heard.

Stay on the Gospel Side

We’ll be taking a bit of a traditional free form exploration of gospel, blues, soul, and country, pairing up The Blind Boys of Alabama with James Carr and Bobby “Blue” Bland for a soul stew of the day. The fun doesn’t stop there; in face, it just gets started and we’ll be reaching into the dusty country bins for some Roy Rogers and the Sons of the Pioneers. And new sounds: a benefit piece, a cover of Tom Petty’s For Real performed by Willie Nelson and the Family…right alongside a new track from The James Hunter Six. Friday evenings on KWTF pushes the roots envelope every week. Join Dave Stroud at 9 Pacific.

Party at the House

November kicks off with a party at our house. Some rare R&B nuggets, some classic old time country and honky-tonk, and a little bit of the New Orleans and house party themes to kick off the morning here on Deeper Roots. House parties, rent parties, and dance hall jamborees are celebrated by Bob Wills, Babs Gonzales, Little Esther, Jackie Brenston, and Dale Watson. We’ll also hear from Willie, T-Bone, and Merle on a Friday morning show that brings a little bit of light into the Sonoma County after weeks of trepidation from the fires. Please join Dave Stroud broadcasting live from downtown Santa Rosa.

Covered by the Stones

It had to start somewhere. And it did. The music that inspired rock and roll also inspired the countless British Invasion groups that littered the charts beginning in the early-to-mid 60s. Mayall, The Yardbirds, and, of course, The Rolling Stones. The early years of the Stones found them playing covers of some of the great stateside R&B, blues, and soul classics. Our Deeper Roots show today  feasts on the originals (as did Jagger, Richard and company) and brings you the seminal sounds of Chuck Berry, Muddy Waters, Solomon Burke, Arthur Alexander, and a host of others in our tribute to the music that was a fusion of blues, R&B, and soul. Music that made rock and roll the world music phenomenon that it was to become. Tune into Community Radio on Fridays for roots music.

Tune in for a mix of sounds coming from the free form archives, celebrating a century of America’s music as is the habit each Friday morning at 9 on Sonoma County Community Radio.

Country sounds feature two Georges: Strait and Jones, soul sounds from The Miracles and Arthur Alexander, rhythm & blues from the ladies including Varetta Dillard, Etta James, and Albinia Jones, and an oddball opening set that takes us down into some strange and exotic places “Ahbe Casaba” and “Katanga!”

The Stax Label

Founded in 1957 by brother and sister Jim Stewart and Estelle Axton as Satellite Records, Stax Records would become a powerhouse soul and R&B label in the sixties. Their ‘open door’ policy of welcoming artists to prove themselves in the studio produced an unparalleled cadre of talent. Although it looked as if the label went down with its biggest talent, Otis Redding, in 1967 when Atlantic Records had Stax forfeit all of its studio recordings through its power of majority stakeholder, under the guiding hand of Al Bell, the catalogue was rebuilt and a whole new generation of performers would surface in the 1970s. We’ll share the stories and the music from the Stax label this Friday on Deeper Roots on Sonoma County’s powerhouse low power station, KOWS.

If You’re Ready

Free form this morning, live from the studios in downtown Santa Rosa. Deeper Roots shares a rare mix of sounds including jug band sounds from Jim Kweskin, a new track from Maria Muldaur, The Ink Spots, Gal Holiday, and Pee Wee Crayton…oh what a mix. Dave hosts a unique blend of sounds each Friday morning and he’ll be setting aside a playlist or two that scratches the surface of the Burnette clan including Johnny, Dorsey, Billy and Rocky including a wrap up of some tracks from the great Bay Area-based  Solid Smoke reissue from the early 80s of the Rock n’ Roll Trio. Tune in for some Hash House Hattie and One Eyed Jacks, this Friday evening at 9
