Sit back and relax. Today’s Deeper Roots takes on a quieter mood with easy and sweet pop melodies from the past century. Dreamy classics from the American Songbook featuring the likes of Ray Charles, Leon Redbone, Willie Nelson, Sam Cooke, The Pied Pipers, and many more. From the 1930s to the 2010s, this week’s show contains the polish of moonlight, the wisp of clouds against a blue sky, and a trip to the Isle of Golden Dreams. Something to ponder…a dream or two…adrift like smoke rings in low light. All for our West County fans on Community Radio.

Superstition and luck are the topics for our theme show on a Friday night in Sonoma County on community radio. Deeper Roots explores those superstitious topics of charms, clovers, black cats, and numerology this week.  Join Dave Stroud for blues from the Wolf, Lucille Bogan, and Albert King; county star power from Skeets McDonald, Ernest Tubb, and Elvis; plus a lot of special treats including tracks from Bill Wyman's Rhythm Kings, Casey Bill Weldon, Joe Barry, and Larry Campbell. We'll also be wishing on star power from Cliff Edwards and Petra Haden...and four leaf clover luck from Nick Lucas, Bill Haley, and Al Miller. From the turn of the century to a couple of contemporary sounds.

White line fever...that endless gray ribbon...asphalt mixed with bennies...and a whole lot of attitude around semis, mile markers, county mounties, and bobtail returns. Terminology you won't hear too much on our show...except for this show which shares the songs of the long-haulers. Bill Kirchen, Red Simpson, Buck Owens, and Merle Haggard are just a sample of the performers joining in the fun where Cliff Bruner & His Boys introduce us to the first truck driving song "Truck Driver Blues" right up to that bad boy honky tonkin' guitar trucker Dale Watson. You can't escape the 18 wheel energy on Sonoma County Community Radio...straight from the Bakersfield asphalt to yours.

Jazz guitar masters take center stage on a February Friday in Sonoma County on community radio. Join Dave Stroud as he revisits some of the great jazz guitar performances including tracks from Charlie Christian, Eddie Lang, Teddy Bunn, and Kenny Burrell. This week’s two hour show will also include some country and rock favorites whose guitar work stands alongside the great influential performers of the day….Les Paul, Chet Atkins, and Hank Garland among them.

Songs about moonlight on the trail this week. We revisit songs about Old Paint, cowpokes, outlaws, and the wide expanse of the range in this week's show. Tradition, temperance, and memories of the Red River Valley with Michael Martin Murphey, Jimmie Driftwood, Rex Allen, Powder River Jack (featuring Kitty Lee), and many more cowboys from Hollywood and the old Navajo Trail. Storytelling and nostalgic novelties, most elevating the hardscrabble life of the West to a Disney featurette. Right here on Sonoma County community radio.

We gravitate towards gospel because it’s roots are so entwined with virtually every form of music we feature on Deeper Roots; so we’ll revisit the sound once more. However, in this episode we’ll focus on the rock and rhythm inspiration…gospel performances that were more worldliness than holiness. Jesus Rocked The Jukebox is the name of an album that we’ve leaned on in this episode and expanded from there with examples of over-the-top performances in the key of the sacred but with the pounding rhythmic syncopation of the secular. Join Dave Stroud as he pulls out the stop with the likes of The Dixie Hummingbirds, The Detroiters, The Highway QCs, Fannie Bell Chapman, and a host of others. Breathtaking gospel for a Friday evening in Sonoma County.

The influence of gospel, blues, country, and tradition has always informed the music of Elvis…and while we’re not digging too far into the later works, we’ll go sit with Elvis on the sofa with our ears to the Victrola and the crackling of WDIA Memphis and the smattering of black blues and gospel over the air. We’ll hear The Carters, Jimmy Reed, Smiley Lewis, Little Junior Parker, Mahalia Jackson, and a couple dozen more in this episode. Keep an ear out for some rare recordings including those whose meager popularity evaporated once Elvis went on to cover them. Names like Joe Dowell, The Eagles (not the LA band), Deacon Tom Foger, and Charlie Blackwell bely their contributions to the Elvis catalog.

We’re in the rockabilly and country zone this Friday evening on Sonoma County community radio. We’re cattin’ around with those mid-century hep-cats, listening to stories of cheaters, liars, and mean mistreaters in the tune of country boogie and all with the theme of ‘cats’…one that we’ve covered in other themes in our show before. We’ll hear from the not-so-knowns like Forest Rye, Simon Crum, Bill Mack, and others you’ll likely be unfamiliar with. But we’ve also got the likes of Hank Thompson, Carl Perkins, Dale Hawkins, and Bob Wills to keep you in your comfort zone. It’s a delicate cross between country, hillbilly, and rockabilly all for you on a Friday evening. Tune in!
January 12, 2018 03:30 PM PST
We open 2018 with a mix of jazz, R&B, New Orleans piano, gospel, and country… nothing that you would not expect from the show. Here’s hoping to something much better from all of us…as a democracy and a society. While the 1 percent have fooled the desperate we’ll be spending time with the passions of Ivie Anderson, Ray Charles, Madeline Bell, Doug Sahm, and Sam Cooke to keep our hearts, minds, and eyes on the prize. Join Dave Stroud for a free form exploration of American roots music every other Friday morning at 9am on KOWS and weekly (Friday evenings at 9) on KWTF.

While the lyrics and music of Robert Hunter took the Grateful Dead into remarkable directions, codifying their place among the bands of the latter half of the 20th century, by the time they reached their peak their roots were already firmly established. Their early music was clearly anchored in the sounds of tradition, reaching from the Appalachians to the Texas Gulf Coast. We’ll hear early (and contemporary) performances that inspired the band with songs of Blind Willie Johnson, Red Allen, The Mississippi Sheiks, Henry Thomas and Obray Ramsey. The landscape we’ll traverse includes blues, gospel, hillbilly, and folk…no Dead music, only music that served to inspire. This week on Sonoma County Community radio.
