Dan Weber will perform live
Dan Weber will drop by the KBOO studios at 6 am Wednesday February 4 to kick off the Winter Membership Drive on Pastures of Plenty. He'll bring his great stories, good humor, and and sing songs from his brand new CD "What I'm Lookin' For". Tickets to his sold out show March 22 at Artichoke Music- which will be recorded for a live album- will be available as thank-you gifts, along with your chance to score copies of the new CD before it's release date. Dan joined me in the studio in 2013 and we had a heckuva good time. This time Diane Hunt- the silver-throated folk goddess of Folk Espresso- will also join the party. It'll be a real hoot!

I played mostly songs of loss and longing, hot weather songs, and songs of protest and hope.

I bought the "New Chinese Bamboo Flute Music" CD on the street in China 30 years ago.  The track I played is translated on the cover as "The Funy Genuis on the Horseback."

Jim Page wrote "The Truth Will Get You Arrested" before Bradley Manning became Chelsea Manning. He now sings, "Chelsea Manning blew the whistle, and that makes her a hero to me."  She's still imprisoned:

The Graham Nash song on the same topic has a poweful video version. Check it out. He's appearing at the Aladdin July 18.

Host: Jack Bohl

It's July- summer, 4th of July, and time for the Waterfront Blues Festival. First off Dan Weber with his brilliant tale of picking up a Deadhead after a Grateful Dead concert in Louisville that featured the all time worst version of "Louie Louie" (Hard to imagine). Then a tribute to the late lamented BB King and  Percy Sledge, songs about summer, and finally some songs to get you in the mood for 4th of July.

The Music

 Hi - At one time I had almost every album of the music that I've been hearing for about the last hour - on LP's that I bought in Europe - including the Fairport Convention with Sandy Denny singing Matty Groves. Have you ever heard of Rory Gallagher? I had every LP of his also that I could get my hands on (in Europe), then when I came back home to the states, I foolishly sold them all - about 8 to 10 LP's of his (I think). Too bad for me! Since I sold them (about 1976) I've NEVER heard anyone play one of his songs, including KBOO, and I constantly listen to KBOO. So please, just one Rory Gallagher song if you have one. Some of his rock ballads fit in so perfectly with Fairport Convention, Traffic, Joan Baez, etc. etc. Thanks > Nick
