This week: Rockport, MA 9-2-2016

This being the second night of a two night run at the amazing Shalin Liu Performance Center helped to propel this setlist into the extraordinary. Recorded September 2nd 2016, with bandmates Todd Sickafoose and Terence Higgins. Starting off the night with some early classics including Shy, Fuel and 2 Little Girls, they are all overshadowed when the seldom seen Sorry I Am makes an appearance. The set then swiftly moves towards newer material from Binary as Luke Enyeart and Chastity Brown join the band for the rest of the show. Standouts here include Alrighty and an electrified Binary to close the set. New bootlegs featured every week, airing Wednesday, Friday and Saturday nights at 9pm CDT and Thursday, Saturday, and Sunday mornings at 4am CDT.



This week: Amanda Palmer on the Good Life Podcast

Amanda Palmer joins Jonathan Fields, host of the Good Life Podcast. Jonathan and his team have been traveling the world, exploring what it means to live a good life. Hosting in-depth conversations with global visionaries from all walks of life, from iconic business founders to scientists, artists, social-impact innovators, and everyday people living fully-engaged, alive lives. Amanda definitely checks several of those boxes. Amanda Palmer is a singer, songwriter, playwright, pianist, author, director, blogger, and ukulele enthusiast who simultaneously embraces and explodes traditional frameworks of music, theatre, and art. Her new album, There Will Be No Intermission, is a no-holds-barred, evocative masterwork that speaks to the full sweep of human experience. The conversation will air Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at 12pm and 5pm CDT.


Woody's Voice

Join the Woody Guthrie Center on Sunday at 12pm and again at 4pm CDT for "Woody's Voice" on Righteous Babe Radio. "Woody's Voice" will explore struggle and overcoming issues together, and you'll be hearing from Woody, artists who collaborated with his words, and some new music that continues Woody's message. The show is curated by the Center, with Ani hosting and sharing our message. We will rebroadcast Woody's Voice at 12 pm CDT on Tuesdays and Thursdays.


Letters from an American

Historians are fond of saying that the past doesn’t repeat itself; it rhymes. To understand the present, we have to understand how we got here. That’s where this newsletter comes in. Heather Cox Richardson is a professor of American history. She believes that you can’t get a grip on today’s politics without an outline of America’s Constitution, and laws, and the economy, and social customs, her newsletter explores what it means, and what it has meant, to be an American. These were the same questions a famous observer asked in a book of letters he published in 1782, the year before the Treaty of Paris ended the Revolutionary War. Hector St. John de Crevecoeur called his book “Letters from an American Farmer.” History doesn’t repeat itself, but it sure rhymes. We will broadcast a recording of Heather Cox Richardson reading the daily letters at 6pm, 11pm and 8am the following day CDT.
