Live interview with Ruthie Foster & lots of new music!

Today during the first hour we took a trip the Baluchistan, Iran. Part of the ongoing series about the ethnic music of Iran, produced by Dan Rein and Baktash Boghrati.

In the second hour we had an interview with local musician Jack Klatt about his new solo recording.

Today, it was my pleasure to welcome Jill and Mark as guest co-hosts. They brought in some great music too.

Eric spins back-to-back old and new versions of Cajun and Creole gems! Also some tracks from (now Grammy-winning!) “Band Courtbouillon” recording.
And, of course, the Mardi Gras Song.

Scottie Miller, great keyboardist from the Twin Cities stopped by the studio. In addition to his own career, he’s a member of Ruthie Foster’s band (KFAI is bringing them to Hopkins on Tuesday). He’ll also be playing Freewheelin’ 1st Friday on Feb. 1 at Harriet Brewing (plus Mary Cutrufello and her band). New music included Anders Osborne, Aaron Neville, Lucinda Williams, and Brian Laidlaw & The Family Trade. Plus the usual eclectic mix from multiple genres.
