From the Studio

Who is Dave Cobb?

If you’re like me, there are probably multiple components to the process of making music that fascinate you.  For reasons unbeknownst to me, I have always been fascinated by the role of the Producer (in fact, I’ve written many an article just like this about my fascination).  One producer whose name is surfacing more than any other these days is Dave Cobb.

Who is Dave Cobb?  Well…simply put he’s a musician who turned Producer.  He was born in Georgia and now resides in West Nashville.  When you hear him talk about music he’s incredibly passionate.  He likes to talk about his influences of the classic country he was raised on, and would eventually pursue as a career until he realized he never really liked being on the road.  The way he describes it now is that he gets to be a part of many bands.  He has the ability to work with various styles while keeping a home base where he lives with his family.

The Elusive Jackson C. Frank

You probably don’t know the name Jackson C. Frank, and there’s really no reason you should, but please read on anyway.

He recorded one obscure album in 1965 and, even though he was an American, it was recorded in England. If you know any of his songs it is because, like me, you are an Anglophile. Everyone on the British folk scene knows a couple of his songs, but they are usually reserved for late night parties after the gig. Perhaps you remember his best known song “Blues Run the Game” because it was recorded by Simon & Garfunkel. Really it was. Maybe you heard Laura Marling’s recording of it, but didn’t associate it with Jackson. Just recently, Colin Meloy of The Decemberists sang it at the concert called “Another Day, Another Time, Celebrating the Music of Inside Llewyn Davis”.  Yes, it is on the soundtrack album you may have received as a thank you gift during our Spring Member Drive.  Read More…

Donate Your Vehicle

Car Donation Banner

Think of it as another way to give to WUMB...or better yet, of recycling. You'll not only benefit yourself with a tax-deductible donation, but that car will support WUMB's independent music, cultural and public affairs programming.
