That’s The Way The World Goes ‘Round

Friday morning fresh from the archives. We’ve got the classics today with a free form mix of vintage sounds from siblings The Mills Brothers and The Boswell Sisters as well as some folk, jubilee, soul, and rhythm from Sugar Pie De Santo, Andy Griffith, The New Christy Minstrels, and The Manhattan Transfer. If that’s now enough, we’ll share some Killer, Albert Ammons, and Creedence. You cannot go wrong on a Thursday evening…. particularly when we get cooking with a track from Maria Muldaur, Marcia Ball, and Angela Strehli in tribute to Sister Rosetta. Join Dave Stroud on Sonoma County Community Radio…88.1 FM, streaming at kwtf.net/live.

Birds

For the birds, about the birds, and don’t you know that we’ll be wingin’ it on Deeper Roots….literally and figuratively. Our theme this week celebrates these descendants of prehistoric times and  we’ll celebrate with flights of music and lyrics by all of the best including stories of robins, blackbirds, bluebirds, mockingbirds, and whipporwills.  Tune in for music from LIttle Jimmy Dickens, Buffalo Springfield, Bill Monroe, and The Handsome Family on a Sonoma County Community radio morning that promises the brightest and warmest of the year so far. What better way to enjoy a Friday morning.

Rock Bop & Roll

We’ve got a wild mix this week…sounds from the rock n’ roll archives, all done while excavating deeper into the halls of R&B, rockabilly, and country. Don’t count on the usual suspects, although there will be a few attending, but look to the under-the-radar floor pounders. The performances mostly qualify for shouts, shakes, and rocking fool’s gold, including some hillbilly ranters, New Orleans panters, and country banters. Tune in for some obscure Eddie Cochran alongside sounds from Jimmy Dee & The Offbeats, Sax Kari & His Ballin’ Blues Band, Royce Porter with The Kounts, and the Brewster Avenue Rhythm Boys. We’re Deeper Roots… and we’re going deeper on Friday mornings at 9am Pacific on KOWS 92.5 FM, repeating the following week on KWTF 88.1 FM. Check us out!

Who We Lost 2018

We’ll circle back to the past twelve months on Deeper Roots’ Friday evening with a little bit of reverence and a whole lot of thanks.  While this past year struck what could be a mortal blow to democracy as we know it, a number of greats (both high profile and ‘under the radar’) were lost along the way.  The names may not be so easy to collate with only two hours to share but we’ll do our best. Remembering Clarence Fountain, Eddy Clearwater, Otis Rush, Eugene Pitt, Marty Balin, Lorrie Collins, Tony Joe White, Roy Clark, and so many others on a Friday evening on  Sonoma County community radio. Tune into our last show of the year and help us remember what these performers brought us.

Louisiana Gumbo

Back to the bayou. Back to Bourbon Street. From a house of blues to the small clubs out across the river. We’ll be taking a journey into the deeper wells where the influences include urban blues, jazz, French Acadian, Caribbean, and African American.  And one could argue a handful of others. It’s all there in the sounds of south where the pianos and guitar amps are wired into a foundation of tradition…as if performed from a garage or cabin. Cookie & The Cupcakes’ swamp pop, swamp rock from Randy & The Rockets, New Orleans busking from Snooks Eaglin, classic piano noodling from the Professor and Dr. John, and a warm bouillabaisse of southern musical cuisine from Dave Bartholomew and Fats Domino all served up on a Friday evening celebrating a few of the treats on community radio for Sonoma County, KOWS.

Answer Songs

Answer songs. A novelty of the music business that has always had a place but it truly exploded, becoming habit-forming with the advent of Top 30 radio in the fifties and sixties. Seldom was there an answer song that responded to a question that was not a big success. This week on Deeper Roots, it will be a ’round robin’ of ‘question followed by answer’ songs including the obscure (which about 99% of the so-called answer songs were). You’ll be treated to the sounds of Tennessee Ernie Ford, Muddy Waters, Rufus Thomas, Dodie Stevens, and Elvis (of course) on a summer Friday in West Sonoma County.

Political Science

The winds of social change become the storm from every direction when authoritarianism, tyranny, and facism begin to take shape. And music has always played a part when speaking truth to power. The most important role of an American citizen is to vote. There is no greater enemy than apathy. The songs we share on Deeper Roots today focus on Civil Rights, war for the cause of oil, voting as voice, and the fight for power in the New World Order. Tune in for performances from Phil Ochs, Ben Harper, Drive-By Truckers, Roy Zimmerman, and Iris DeMent on a show that explores some political science in harmony, vocals, and melodies to make a stand.

Dylan & The Gospel

The argument has been made that Bob Dylan’s earliest music contained more prophetic prose than his deep dive into the Christian faith in Slow Train Coming. His pen had always leaned on the big story lines of Old and New Testaments but he went all out, much as he did in his ‘rock’ conversion, when he made the direct connection to matters of the soul that he would find in the Bible. This week’s show features the gospel songs of Bob Dylan, performed by gospel greats The Dixie Hummingbirds, The Fairfield Four, The Mighty Clouds of Joy, and so many others. Tune into Sonoma County Community radio for a Dylan gospel fest including Maria Muldaur and Willie Nile.
