(airing 5/18 – 5/24) eTown broadcast/podcast with CAKE and Chuck Prophet

It’s another ‘back by popular demand’ eTown broadcast/podcast, this one featuring the dynamic American indie band, CAKE. This group has built a huge base of fans with their unique blend of pop, funk, jazz and rock. They fit right into the eTown scene because they are extremely environmentally and socially conscious guys. They’ve never been […]

(airling 5/11 – 5/17) eTown broadcast/podcast with Flobots and Teddy Thompson

We’re pretty excited over here at eTown. So much great stuff: the matching grant, the construction progress at eTown Hall, and this week’s broadcast/podcast. Lots of young folks on the show this week. It’s really almost the yin and the yang show, with one set of musicians from Colorado who are some of the most […]

(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 […]

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.
