San Fermin / Jeremy Messersmith

Brooklyn-based baroque pop band San Fermin joins us this week. The New Yorker magazine recently praised the musicianship of this eight-piece band, noting their ability to ?deliver epic and emotion-laden rock, with glorious and operatic vocals, electronic break beats, horns, string, and other flourishes.? Awesome indie-pop singer and songwriter Jeremy Messersmith joins us, too, and we?ll share an uplifting E-Chievement Award story of a group teaching people to build homemade solar panels while also providing portable solar lights for poor families in third world countries

Art Of The Song 7:00 am
Darryl Purpose

our guest this week on Art of the Song is Darryl Purpose. With a storyteller?s heart Darryl has connected with audiences in the top folk venues in the country, including Club Passim, McCabe?s, The Bluebird Cafe, and The Kennedy Center. In the nineties he joined with a group of musicians and peaceniks to walk across the entire United States for peace. In 2005, Darryl put down the guitar and resumed his former career as a professional card player. During that time he earned enough money to buy two houses, one for himself and one for his mother. He is one of 17 members of the Blackjack Hall of Fame. Thankfully, Darryl has returned to music. In 2012 he released the highly acclaimed CD, Next Time Around, which spent five weeks at number one on the Roots Music Report folk chart. We spoke with Darryl in our Albuquerque Studios about music, card playing and healthy living
