(airing 4/20 – 4/26) eTown broadcast/podcast with John Hiatt & Brandi Carlile

Hello, Boy oh boy do I love the Aspen area in Colorado. Have you ever been that way? So beautiful. I’ve loved it ever since I moved to Telluride in the 1970’s from Minnesota (weather wise, if you are familiar with my home state’s brutal winters, that’s sort of like moving from Siberia to the […]

(airing 4/13 – 4/19) eTown broadcast/podcast w/Ray LaMontagne & Ingrid Michaelson

Hello Friends! Easter is not far around the bend, for those of you who (1) believe in that from a religious standpoint and/or (2) love the chocolate bunnies, jelly beans and other sugary treats that seem to emerge around that time. We’ll be bringing you some sugar of our own this week, both on the […]

This week’s eTown broadcast/podcast with Martin Sexton and Nellie McKay (airing 4/6 – 4/12)

How are you? I know a lot of you are like me these days, deeply disturbed by all the chaos going on in the world. The suffering of the Japanese people, as well as that of those in Libya, is so awful. Obviously two different sources for this suffering, but heart breaking all the same. […]

This week's eTown broadcast/podcast with The Punch Brothers and Tift Merritt (airing 3/23 – 3/29)

Hi everyone, Wow, what a wacky time we are all experiencing. Bombing Libya. A horrible hat trick (earthquake, tsunami, nuclear catastrophe) in Japan. Complete partisanship in DC. Insanity in Wisconsin (and havoc reeked on the middle class). On a more personal level, our friend’s recent voluntary departure from the planet (Nick and I miss you […]

This Week's eTown Broadcast with Michelle Shocked and The Bad Plus

Hello everyone, Here’s a little bit of eTown trivia: Folk singer/songwriter and feisty social activist Michelle Shocked is one of our top ten most frequent eTown visitors, with ten live eTown tapings under her musical belt. As a matter of fact, we thought that was impressive enough to warrant our sharing her most recent (that’s […]

Hello everyone, Hope you are having a good week. One way to make it even better is catching this week’s eTown broadcast/podcast.

I’m excited about this week’s eTown broadcast/podcast, in which we welcome back veteran performer and musician Keller Williams for his third visit to the show. What a great guy! So alive and joyful, always ready to, well, play! During this trip to eTown, he brings with him […]

This Week's Broadcast with Joe Jackson and Paddy Casey

One of my all time favorite performers is Joe Jackson. During my years living in Telluride, my dear friend Malcolm (now deceased for many years) turned me on to Joe’s music. We were just kids then. Many was the time that Malcolm and I would hang out at his place or mine on some gorgeous […]

This Week's eTown Broadcast with Moby and Nellie McKay

Don’t you love New York? What a great city. I love going there whenever I can. And this week in eTown, we can all go there together, in a sense. In this ‘back by popular demand’ re-airing, eTown features two amazing New York City based performers. One is Moby, who, as we all know, is a […]
