Anderson East was our first Artist in Residence at WFPK performing not only at August’s Waterfront Wednesday but also Live Lunch and the New Albany Bicentennial Park Concert Series too. So, of course we had to have him come by the station because that simply wasn’t enough of this very talented artist!
Maia Sharp‘s forthcoming release will be called The Dash Between The Dates. When she and her guitarist, Linda Taylor, were here for our August Waterfront Wednesday, we asked her about the title for the new album and to play a song for us too.
David Lowery and Johnny Hickman of Cracker are celebrating 25 years as a band. They also have a new double album that shows two of the many influences on their music called Berkeley to Bakersfield. Recently in town, they stopped by our studio and talked about the new album and the state of California.
Fantastic Negrito won over a good portion of our Louisville audience when he and his band performed at our July Waterfront Wednesday show. He has a very interesting past and hopefully a very bright future. He tells us some of his story here on 91.9 WFPK.
BJ Barham is the frontman for one of the hardest working bands around, American Aquarium. They recently recorded and released perhaps their finest album to date, Wolves. Before their appearance at July’s Waterfront Wednesday, BJ stopped by the studio and talked to us about the new album and some big changes for the band.
Texas troubadour Dale Watson is celebrating his 20th year as a recording artist with a new album, Call Me Insane. Dale is having a good year making appearances on late night television, Austin City Limits and in film. He came by our studio before his gig at the New Vintage.
