Episode #11 – Jan. 8, 2014

a1216837430_2I kick off 2014 by looking back at the in-studio performances I recorded during my tenure as GM at 89.1 KPVL Community Radio. This episode features original recordings of music by indie-blues maestros General B & The Wiz, inspired Twin Cities shoe-gazers Brilliant Beast, NW Iowa’s premier social justice folk-rock act Andy Juhl & The Bluestem Players, Decorah’s transformational songstress Michelle Lynn, Stillwater retro-rock revivalists Ruben, angelic-voiced heart-on-his-sleeve singer-songwriter Jacob Grippen, and quirky Minneapolis soul and blues singer Clare Lockman.

296574_2447615427064_1707731468_nHaving independent musicians stop by the studio for performances and interviews was one of the more rewarding aspects of my job at KPVL. All of the performances featured here are tied to fond memories. Ms. Lockman’s visit in August of 2010 is the earliest, while General B & The Wiz’s in-studio in April of 2012 is the most recent. Andy Juhl & The Bluestem players made the journey from Spencer, IA twice. Their song featured in this episode is from their 2nd stop to Decorah and, in my opinion, is one of the better sounding / recorded performances I captured.
