Hi Music Friends,
I’ll try and regularly post playlists here, and soon I’ll add a widget to make them searchable by Artist, Album or Date. And once that’s done, I’ll try and add in the last 20 years of assorted playlists from a whole bunch of past shows.
We kick off kpfa’s fall fund drive with new music from The War & Treaty, Marcus Mumford, Rhett Miller, Day Wave, Lake Street Dive, and Ondara. Other shiny objects from Amos Lee, Lucinda Williams, Steve Earle, Kate Bush, OCMD, David Gray, Valerie June and other favorites. It all sparkles – until it doesn’t.
A lazy, hot-weather, dog-days kind of show, just ambling around from Linda Ronstadt to Willie Nelson, Valerie June, Sunny Sweeney, Guy Clark, OCMS, Frank Sinatra, Leonard Cohen, Tim Buckley, Linda Thompson, Brad Mehldau, Tom Waits, 10,000 Maniacs, and more.
A little fund drive show with some new music from Chad Price, Bonnie Raitt, Kelsey Waldron, Shemekia Copeland, and The Deslondes. Antique music from Charles Lloyd & The Beach Boys, The Waterboys, John Prine, Patty Griffin, Mable John, Tom Waits and more! We are sailing in a Strange Boat.
The first hour is pretty high-energy, while the second hour winds down into a more relaxed vibe – even a little jazz. Great new tracks from the Sweet Lizzy Project, Caitlin Rose, Joe Pug, The Brother Brothers, Sara Glaser, Tami Neilson, Patty Griffin, Dan Tyminsky, and The Vandoliers. Old faves from The War & Treaty, Lo’Jo, The Band of heathens, Alabama Shakes, Reckless Kelly, Cowboy Junkies, and more!
New sounds for the waning days of the fund drive! New (and new-old) music from Amythyst Kiah, Joy Oladukun, Mavis & Levon, Eli Paperboy Reed, Nicki Bluhm, Bret McKenzie and more. A neo-trad-70’s-mashup set from a handful of young Irish vocalists, and a sideways goodbye to Vangelis.

An interview and live performance from the extraordinary songwriter and producer, T Bone Burnett, taped last week at the Great American Music Hall where T Bone was performing. Betty Beasley will be filling in for Bonnie this Thursday, but she’ll be playing the interview Bonnie did with T Bone Burnett shortly after 8:00PM.
