Songs about one of the most controversial of mankind’s attempt to balance the scales: the death penalty. Studies point to the fact that at least one in 25 people sentenced to the death penalty in the U.S. are innocent and yet the death penalty is legal in 32 states. In China, corporate fraud can be punishable by death…if it were the case here, our government would probably be on the straight and narrow. But I digress. The music this week will explore the long walk to eternity through the eyes of the condemned; the knowledge of the eventuality of the executioner’s song is clarity. And we’ve got country from a whole host of obscure characters, some blues and boogie, along with just a little bit of folk and bluegrass. A hundred years of the hangman’s rope in reflection.

A nostalgic celebration of youth, love, and idealism...some saccharine sounds for a Friday evening whose theme is young at heart. We'll be digging into mid-century popular sounds, with a laser focus on the many songs for young lovers that poured out of AM radio during the early years of jukebox rock from the soda fountain. But we'll also reflect on the loss of youth, childlike wonder, and a little bit of tongue-in-cheek heartbreak and bitterness. Country sounds from Hayes Carll and Roger Miller, symphonic soliloquies from Percy Faith and Ray Conniff, and reflective studies by Bob Dylan and Antony, and some growing pains from Tom Waits and Billy Bob Thornton. How can you go wrong?

From the Brill Building to the Delta; from Bakersfield to Woodstock; from Tulsa to Deep Elem. Music on a Friday evening from the deeper wells, all presented to you in the form of covers: some new, some vintage, some traditional. We’ll pair up Tom Waits and Blind Willie Johnson, The Band and JJ Cale, Connee Boswell and VV Brown, and there will also be plenty to cover going back to Gus Cannon, Bradley Kincaid, and The Carter Family. It’s our Friday welcome mat to autumn here on Sonoma County Community Radio.

We’re exploring the blues this week on Deeper Roots. And it’s all about bad luck blues…when the dice roll snake eyes, when the crops won’t make the rent, when your woman asks for money and all you got is the dust in your pockets…when you ain’t got no money. Join Dave Stroud for a collection of the very best including Big Joe Williams’ Jinx Blues, bad luck stories from Dinah Washington and Memphis Minnie, piano moaning from Leroy Carr and Ivory Joe, as well as further tales of gambling, dice, and no luck from Clifford Gibson and Black Boy Shine. Friday evening blues….what more?

We’ve got some retro sounds filling the airwaves on another Friday evening right after Rebel Blues with Sistah Friend on KWTF community radio. Hot rod sounds, killer diller Memphis Minnie blues, early century pop from Annette Hanshaw and Mae West, gospel from the Blind Boys of Alabama and Sam Cooke…and some sweet soul vocals from The Ravens and Barbara Lewis. You won’t go wrong on a summer evening in Sonoma County. Tune in.

Time has flown like it always does…it’s been since August 2012 and we’re taking time out for a special celebration on weekly show. Dave Stroud will be reaching back and revisiting tracks he played on the first couple of shows back in the day…including tracks from Geraint Watkins, Fats Waller, Sister Rosetta, Big Joe Turner, Nina Simone, and a host of others. Deeper Roots has kept its promise to it’s listeners…back then and right to the current day. Tune in! Join us and raise a glass.

And the topic of this episode will be natural disasters. Namely...floods. Timeless events and timeless music. Dave Stroud will share in-depth blues about rising waters, country music about the terror brought to us by Mother Nature, featuring Dave Alvin, James McMurtry, Whispering Smith, Blind Lemon Jefferson, Bessie Smith, and Lonnie Johnson...to mention but a few. Our show will focus on music that tells a story, because that's what we find best in the tradition of Americana roots.

We look back…even though we weren’t there. Our show this week will celebrate the American songbook and popular music in the darkest of times: the year 1932. The clouds were only starting to clear in the heart of the Great Depression and the music was hopeful, sometimes saccharine, and the songwriting talent abundant. The performances were not bad either. The Mills Brothers, Bing Crosby, The Boswell Sisters, Cab Calloway, Mildred Bailey, and many others contributed. Tune in on our morning look at the popular sounds of 1932.

Talk is cheap. Talk can walk...if given the chance. With technology in our face each and every moment ... it seems that talk has become even cheaper if not more full of falsehoods. From the very top the sewer of hyperbole flows downhill. But I digress. We'll go from country to R&B, rock to gospel, and back again...with a theme show about 'talking'. We've got Little Willie John, Nancy Wilson, Bob Wills, Bobby Charles, and Doris Day performing and following the talking points on our roots celebration on Sonoma County community radio.

Get your morning cup of roots sounds with a look at the record label whose catalog is overflowing with some of the most important recordings of the 20th century. From the birth of the blues to the birth of jazz; from the earliest gospel jubilee sounds of the deep South to the the electrifying sacred steel sounds of the late century; from the hillbilly string bands to the hokum sounds of the urban South…it’s all there. Document Records has amassed one of the world’s most revered collections of Americana out there and you can tune into Sonoma County community radio for a sampler of the music that has survived the century’s shift in technology , infiltrated our culture, and influenced performers to this day.
