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.

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 […]

This Week's eTown Broadcast with Josh Ritter and The Hold Steady.

I don’t know about you, but this time of year gives me a severe case of wanderlust. I get an almost overpowering urge to head for parts unknown (or maybe it’s just a craving for warmer weather). I hope to get a chance to hit the road sometime soon. Let me know if you have […]
