Josh Tillman stopped by to talk with Kyle Meredith before his Louisville Palace performance in what ended up being an extensive interview (and guest DJ session) covering philosophy, irony, The Memo, and “the Taylor Swift thing.”
And here’s their previous interview that the two were talking about:
Toronto band Fast Romantics are making their way across the states and winning new fans every day. Their new song “Julia” will appear on an upcoming EP, plus they performed a brand new song not available anywhere yet.
We had the recent pleasure of getting to speak with musician extraordinaire, Rhiannon Giddens. Her latest album, produced by T-Bone Burnett, is called Tomorrow Is My Turn. Rhiannon also sang us an original song from the album called “Angel City”.
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.
