We get serious about the deeper roots … going much deeper this evening, working mostly in pairs, exploring the blues from the Delta and beyond. Acoustic blues, played on the front porch with the evening sun finally set beyond the hill. Blues from the cabin if you will. We’ll hear acoustic sounds from Big Joe Williams, Son House, Honeyboy Edwards, Mississippi Fred McDowell, and many others including a small sampling of some contemporary performers. Sonoma County Community radio’s musical archives are brimming.

....'Cause it's gotta have soul, rhythm, and blues to make the cut this week. That's the answer to the question. We'll look to a couple of iconic comedians from the late 70s to inspire us with a collection of sounds lifted from their albums...and their movies. Why not? Jake and Elwood teamed up with Stax legends Steve Cropper, Matt "Guitar" Murphy, and Duck Dunn to deliver punch after punch and we're going to sample the best of it. We've got Willie Mabon, King Floyd, Johnnie Taylor, Big Joe, The Robins, The Soul Survivors, and (of course) Aretha...all for you in a two hour rhythm & blues & soul extravaganza this week on Deeper Roots.

One of the more popular topics that follows the Americana and roots landscape (aside from love, death, and the gospel) is the topic of ice cold beer. Beer in the morning, beer in the evening, beer at suppertime. And our show this week is a sampler of 30 plus tracks of (mostly) country, rockabilly, rock, some blues, and we'll be including some vintage television commercials that celebrate the suds. So kick back with a cold one and tune that dial to Deeper Roots on KWTF with your host Dave Stroud this Friday evening at 9 Pacific as he steps up to the bar and shares a wild assortment of songs about a cold brew or two...and we're not talkin' boojie coffee.

Mellow R&B from a broad spectrum of performers who made a mark in the decade or so that preceded rock 'n roll's infancy. Indeed, they participated in the birth of the form with a sound that included the vocal quartet, jump and swing, and an incessant beat that could not be ignored. We'll hear from the 'feisty females' of the day: Varetta Dillard, Blue Lu Barker, Big Maybelle, and Bernice Gooden right alongside Buddy Johnson's Orchestra, the Three Bits of Rhythm, The Cats & the Fiddle, and Luke Jones and the Orchestra. Deeper Roots digs into a collection of tracks, some familiar, some from so deep in the archives that the dust is part of the sound, on another Friday evening of American roots sounds for Sonoma County community radio.

We return to a free form blend of American roots this February evening. Our topics are of the varietal kind including a collection of blues including the Cocaine Blues, the Guitar Blues, Aunt Hagar’s Blues, Frisco Blues, and Evil Hearted Man Blues. We’ll also bring up the topics of Civilization with Louis Prima, Old Fashioned Love with The Mills Brothers, and Emmett Miller will delight the crowds with his jelly roll song. It’s R&B, blues, country, jazz and rock on a Wednesday evening in West County.

The past few months have been brutal for democracy. There is no silver lining in sight but this week’s music will nonetheless feature some songs of hope: our theme is one of clouds and silver linings. It’s meant to give a two hour break (if that’s at all possible) to the malevolent stewing cauldron that is brewing in the most sacred halls of our democracy. We’ll discard with the political music this week and simply ride a topical wave featuring a blend of jazz, country, gospel, rock, and pop. Tune in for music from Van Morrison, The Sons of the Pioneers, George Gershwin, Dave Van Ronk, and Pops Staples…to name but a few…this week on Sonoma County community radio.

It's time once again to visit the wild side of rock n' roll...unrestrained and unforgiving...and often out of tune. But that didn't matter since it was the emotion and the sweat that filled the production gaps. A progenitor of punk, rockabilly music got its roots from hillbilly, country swing, and R&B. And it certainly owes a lot to Carl Perkins, Jerry Lee Lewis, and Elvis Presley. Our show this week will cover the known and the unknown. We'll hear tracks from the Sun stable but we'll also dig into the digital dust bins of the Imperial, Capitol, and Decca labels for vintage examples and a few rockabilly modernists will be on hand. So get your cat clothes on and get ready for a raucous evening in West County on community radio.

Dreams that flow from a nine-volt heart. Drop on by for a stream of sounds from the past century, illuminated by a one-way flow of connections between songs representing the best in blues (Howlin' Wolf), gospel (Sister Rosetta Tharpe and Sister O.M. Terrell), jazz (Nina Simone and Louis Armstrong), country (Guy Clark and The Louvins), contemporary Americana (The Devil Makes Three and Jefferson Ross), and so much more. Songs about trouble, bad roads and bad moons, little birds, coffee, and hidden charms...all for you on Sonoma County community radio.

Gospel is the order of the day … inspirational American roots music to moderate the gloomy days of mid-Winter here in Sonoma County. Blues, rock, country, and the sanctified sounds of spirituality coming to you on another Wednesday evening on Deeper Roots. Our playlist will take you to Maxwell Street with Daddy Stovepipe, the ‘heavenly shore’ with Blind Gussie Nesbit, into the deep country southern climes with Polk Miller and Mac Odell, and we’ll explore contemporary religious topics with Warren Zevon, The Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band, and Lucinda Williams. Tune in!

As a dark and ominous cloud is pulled like a blanket over our great land, we can only hope that the Nation will endure through its legislative, and judicial branches and that the military branch need not become relevant in the balance. As he walks to the podium, there are important words that need to echo across the plains from shore to shore. The spirit and sacrifice of the many great men and women who gave their lives for the promise of our land cannot be stolen. We won’t let it be stolen. Tune in for music that rings true…and turns its back on Friday’s ‘circus of hate’.
