Songs about Rain, inspired by this morning's downpour. Clouds have since parted but we'll sing back the precipitation 5pm today on 91.7 KALW in San Francisco, on the inter-webs on kalw.org. Kevin Vance is your host.
A set of Scottish music this Saturday afternoon at 5 in celebration of Scotland's brave attempt at home rule. We'll hear from Dougie MacLean, Dick Gaughan, and the Battlefield Band. Warning: you may hear bagpipes.
This Saturday at 5, we'll be featuring music from the new documentary, "Hearts Of The Dulcimer", produced out of pocket and out of love for the music by musicians and filmmakers Patricia Delich and Wayne Jiang.
Members of Cascada De Flores, a Bay Area folkloric group specializing in music from Mexico and Cuba, will be Kevin's guests this Saturday on A Patchwork Quilt. They have a new album, Radio Flor, re-enacting the golden age of radio, when everyone you heard, announcers, musicians, actors, poets, and storytellers were always performing live from the studio. Imagine listening to la estacion XEW in Mexico City or La Cadena Azul en La Habana, Cuba in the 1930s and '40s.
