KRCB-FM Radio 91 sounds like Sonoma County

Smith College

We remember feminist author and the first female president of Smith College, Jill Ker Conway.  She died Friday at the age of 83.  She was raised on a remote sheep farm in Australia, where her first schooling was through correspondence.  She wrote three acclaimed memoirs.

World Café makes a pilgrimage to Willie Nelson's tour bus! Willie released an album called Last Man Standing just days before his 85th birthday. Willie talks about how the deaths of dear friends like Merle Haggard and Waylon Jennings influenced the title track, the prank he pulled when he was in the hospital recovering from a collapsed lung and shares insights about his favorite form of relaxation. Giggles ensue.

This week we feature highlights from Dale Watson’s 2018 Ameripolitan Music Awards, held in Memphis, Tennessee.

Presentation of a Gold Resolution and Challenge Coins will be held Tuesday, January 9 at 1:30 p.m.  

Our guest this week on Art of the Song is Colorado singer/songwriter Darryl Purpose. After a time studying guitar, he went to Las Vegas as a teenager and began a career as a professional card player. He was soon known as the world’s fastest card counter. Banned from casinos on six continents, he still calls this the “only real job he’s ever had.” In 1996, Darryl began to tour nationally as a solo singer/songwriter. Eight years, six CDs and a thousand shows later, he was headlining the top folk venues and festivals across North America.

On this week’s broadcast of Mountain Stage with Larry Groce, you’ll hear a set from pop singer and songwriter Brett Dennen, along with his band.

Haunting neo-folk sensation Elephant Revival make their return to the show, with new songs and a few old favorites.  

Beloved alt-rock trailblazers Cracker show their country side.  

And you’ll hear performances from newcomers Liz Vice and Lords of Liechtenstein.  

Listen to Mountain Stage with host Larry Groce every Saturday at noon on KRCB-FM Radio 91!
