This week's show
OUR SHOW WEEK STARTS ON THURSDAY,
SO NEW SHOWS WILL BE BROADCAST ON THURSDAY
AND REBROADCAST ON SATURDAY, SUNDAY AND TUESDAY
The featured for our May 23rd show is an encore of our great interview with MELISSA ETHERIDGE.
Grammy Award-winning songwriter, guitarist, and activist Melissa Etheridge is known for her smoky vocals, confessional lyrics, and intense musical delivery. She has scored numerous Billboard hits (including "I'm The Only One," “Come To My Window," and "I Want To Come Over"), released a dozen albums, and has a devoted international following. On her new album, 4th Street Feeling, Etheridge plays all the guitar parts — a first for her.
In our exclusive interview, Etheridge describes recording 4th Street Feeling and reveals what it was like to track all the guitars on the album. We'll hear selections from this exciting release during the interview.
This week in our Player Spotlight feature, ace lead guitarist Phil Brown pays tribute to Jimi Hendrix. We'll listen to a track off The Jimi Project, Brown's new album that features 12 Hendrix classics reworked in intriguing ways.
In our Back-to-Back segment, we'll compare two instrumental renditions of Hank Williams' "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry." Jazz giant Bill Frisell and acoustic fingerstyle wizard Ed Gerhard each give us their take on this timeless country classic.
But that's not all: We'll hear great guitar sounds from Jeff Lang, Pat Metheny, Michael Hedges, Ben Harper, Ry Cooder, and Randy Kohrs. So please join us online for an hour of music and conversation you won't find anywhere else!
