Miss Tess Live At the Burren

Our most recent Third Thursday at the Burren was a homecoming show for Miss Tess, who spent many years based in the Boston area. She recently relocated to Nashville, where she and her band recorded a good portion of their latest album, Baby We All Know.

It was another exciting night of live radio, and we had the biggest turnout yet with a sold out back room. Tommy McCarthy, owner of the Burren, was in the house too, and he was happy to see the success of our collaboration!

Damn Tall Buildings play our next Third Thursday, on January 19th! Live broadcast begins at 6pm, show starts at 7:30pm.

New Year and New Times!

I think it’s safe to say (for many reasons) that most of us are looking forward to starting a new year! So with that I’d like to remind everyone of a few changes that we have coming up in Programming.

Folk Tales with Scott Alarik has been deemed a huge success here. If you haven’t heard it yet, Scott does an amazing job of bringing music and artists from the past and explains why they’re still relevant today. I’ve heard from many of you asking if we could put this show in a better time slot and I’m happy to report that starting THIS SATURDAY at 12pm you can hear Folk Tales immediately after Highway 61 Revisited.

New Years Resolution

OK, let’s admit it. This is the time of the year when we break all of those New Year’s resolutions. For example, as I write this, it’s already 3 in the afternoon and it’s not looking good for me walking 10 miles today or, to be honest even 5…. Heck I’ll be lucky to walk to the parking lot to get my car. Oh well, maybe tomorrow, or next year….

Here’s on resolution that you can ensure you’ll keep all year: supporting public radio. Let’s be honest, while we can’t predict what’s going to happen this year, if history is any guide,  public radio is going to need your support more than ever.

Here’s how you can help. While you’re here just click THIS. Select a monthly amount that’s comfortable for you, fill in the blanks, and there you are.  Not only are you keeping your New Year’s resolution this monthbut you can be content in knowing that you’ll be acting on your resolution every month of the new year without needing to do anything else.

See, that’s a lot easier than walking ten miles a day….. hmmm…. I wonder if I can get somebody to drive me to my car……

Happy New Year!
