The scoop on this week’s broadcast/podcast, plus some random ‘visionary’ thoughts:

Boy oh boy, am I excited! Love the broadcast/podcast we have for you, airing the week of 6/20 to 6/26: First-time eTown visitors The Infamous Stringdusters take the eTown stage, bringing their very own special sound, reflecting the old and new, the classic and progressive. This hugely popular bluegrass band is awesome in my book. […]

Exquisite pairings this week: Mary Chapin Carpenter and Shawn Colvin, plus our friends’ wedding:

We welcome back two very close friends (and musical muses) to eTown this week, Mary Chapin Carpenter and Shawn Colvin. A few comments about each of them: Mary Chapin Carpenter has her very own unique, compelling, glorious sound and style. There’s no doubt in your mind when you hear her sing and play; she’s universally […]

Additional thoughts on Doc, plus info on this week’s show on-the-air:

Got a great re-broadcast for you this week. As I’ve said before, I’m not sure how we managed to pack all the great stuff (the music, the various conversations, a KILLER E-Chievement Award story) we did into this hour of eTown, but somehow we’ve managed to so. The result? A classic eTown experience. Here’s a […]

Two newcomers make their debut appearance in eTown this week, Young the Giant and Civil Twilight. First, let me tell you a bit about Young The Giant: In just three short […]

Minor thoughts about mortality . . plus news of this week’s broadcast/podcast:

I’m counting my blessings today; it’s a beautiful, balmy, blue sky day, and I just left the office to do some work back at home on our deck upstairs. From where I type this, I can see a lovely bird’s eye view of the large yard below. Right by the deck I’m sitting on is […]

Barack Obama in Boulder . . and a great show for you this week:

Oh. My. God. Have we got a show for you this week! Nick and I welcome back a couple of past eTown visitors: Blues Traveler and Ruthie Foster. First, Blues Traveler: It’s been almost a decade since they last were with us, so we were pretty excited to see them. The band got its start […]

Levon Helm: A Creative Life . . and This Week’s Broadcast/Podcast Details:

Maybe you’re like me: I’m still blue from the news that Levon Helm has passed away. I know that’s not a rational thing. I never had the honor of meeting him; I certainly didn’t know him personally. But still, the music he created had such an impact on our culture and on me, at a […]
