(Airing Oct. 12 – Oct. 18) eTown broadcast/podcast with The Civil Wars and Sarah Jarosz

Great show this week, with visitors The Civil Wars and Sarah Jarosz, two terrific musical guests. Plus a cool, ‘in person, on stage’ E-Chievement Award winner. First, the Civil Wars: This indie duo (Joy Williams & John Paul White) has a stripped-down sound that’s garnered a lot of attention recently. They became a sensation after […]

(Airing Sept. 28 – Oct. 4) eTown broadcast/podcast with Loretta Lynn and Chuck Mead

This week’s show is a very special one, featuring legendary singer/songwriter Loretta Lynn. Wow! That’s right, Nick and I welcome the ‘Coal Miner’s Daughter’ herself, Loretta Lynn. This encore airing is classic eTown. For one thing, Loretta is a hoot in her conversation with Nick, just funny and charming and real as all get out.  She talks […]

(Airing September 21 – September 27) eTown broadcast/podcast with Railroad Earth and The Travelin’ McCourys

Railroad Earth and The Travelin’ McCourys join me and Nick as we pack up the crew and hit the road for Jacksonville, Oregon to be part of the fabulous annual Britt Festival Music Series. Beautiful country out that way, and great local folks as well. Railroad Earth, as usual, provides Americana music at its progressive-bluegrass, […]

(Airing September 14 – September 20) eTown broadcast/podcast with Dan Hick & the Hot Licks and Vienna Teng

Hello everyone, This week’s encore broadcast features two great musical visitors: the legendary guitarist and songwriter Dan Hicks as well as pianist and singer-songwriter extraordinaire Vienna Teng. First Dan: NO one sounds like him. And lucky for us, he brings his great backup vocalists, The Lickettes. Dan’s unique style and counter-culture roots (the beginning of […]

(Airing August 3 – August 9) eTown broadcast/podcast with Joe Bonamassa and Tift Merritt

We’ve got a classic eTown broadcast/podcast for you this week I think you’ll love. Joe Bonamassa and his talented band are with us for one. Joe’s often called the “The New King of the Blues” (Guitarist) and with good reason. He’s only in his early 30’s but he plays with the skills and depth of […]

(Airing July 27-August 2) eTown broadcast/podcast with Bruce Cockburn and Joan Osborne

Hi everyone, This week, Nick and I and the crew head north for another ‘eTown on the road’ program. We return to eTown’s home away from home, the idyllic college town of Ft. Collins, Colorado. In this encore airing, Bruce Cockburn (an honorary show ‘regular’ at this point, in my opinion, with several eTown appearances […]

(Airing July 20 – July 26) eTown broadcast/podcast with DeVotchKa and Joe Purdy

This week, Nick & I welcome two musical guests who share a couple of musical things in common: for one, they are both original, artful entities with their own totally identifiable, unique sound (when you hear them, you know immediately that it’s them) and second, they both paid homage to rock legend Neil Young at […]

And from Texas, gifted young singer/songwriter Ben Kweller graces the eTown stage, […]

(Airing June 28th – July 5th) eTown broadcast/podcast with Ralph Stanley & His Clinch Mountain Boys and Ramblin’ Jack Elliott

Our broadcast this week is an encore airing that brings two elder legends of American music to eTown. Both of these iconic musicians are strong favorites of both Nick’s and mine, and I really think this is one of the better shows in eTown’s history. Apparently our listeners did too; due to the overwhelming response, […]
