In Studio Guest: Autumn In New England

Due to a tour schedule change, today's guest needed to postpone her visit until later in the year. So this morning we stretched out and let the music lead us on a journey through genres and eras. The phone rang often - mostly during segues (of course) - folks were curious about new music and new artists while following some classic grooves. A couple of notes: Gooding's new recording Winter's Return, a dreamy fusion of jazz and new age, drew several calls. West Perth, Australia's The Velvet Janes, contemporary folk with a fine edge, are hot here in Snow City. Bonedance's prerelease CD (only copy is at WCUW - recorded live at Cafe Fantastique here in Worcester) has us all dancing in the studio - good thing radio isn't a visual medium! The Westerleys' evocative recording A Blessing and a Curse and Jim's Big Ego's potent new CD Don't Get Smart also lit up the board. Hey, daylight savings time is here, but it was still dark when I arrived at the station. To brighten up the morning, we let words and music be our guide to start to our day, a crisp and clear Autumn New England day, here in MetroWorcester.
