Question of the Day: Remembering September 11th

by Corny O'Connell

Today is the 13th anniversary of the attacks of September 11, 2001. As we look back, think about what's happened since, and look ahead, what songs come to mind? Leave your suggestions in the comments below and we'll spin a set after 9am.

Here's what we played:

John Hiatt "New York Had Her Heart Broke"

Joan Osborne "Love's in Need of Love Today"

Brinsley Schwarz "(What's So Funny 'Bout) Peace, Love and Understanding"

The Kinks "Better Things"

Trampled By Turtles - FUV Live - 2014

by Carmel Holt

With a wide range of musical backgrounds from folk to speed metal, the Minnesota band Trampled By Turtles is part of a progressive bluegrass movement. The acoustic sextet recently celebrated its tenth anniversary by releasing a seventh album, Wild Animals, and the band stopped by Studio A to play some of the new material and talk about the new album. We’ll hear that conversation and performance during this episode of FUV Live.

On his latest album, Ske-Dat-De-Dat: The Spirit of Satch, Dr. John pays tribute to the one-and-only Louis Armstrong. The album is a collection of 13 songs put through the "Nite Tripper" wash with a little help from his friends, including Bonnie Raitt, Shemekia Copeland, Arturo Sandoval and The Dirty Dozen Brass Band. I had the pleasure of sitting down with Dr. John, here in Studio A to talk about the new album and we’ll hear a sample of the new songs during this episode of FUV Live.

Question of the Day: Play That Funky Music

by Corny O'Connell

Today is the birthdate of Isaac Funk who with Adam Wagnalls gave us Funk & Wagnalls dictionary and encyclopedia. Tragically Funk died in 1912, well before he could get down to the music that would bear his name. By way of historical revisionism, we honor the man (who never went to Funkytown) with your requests. We'll choose the funkiest for a set after 9am.

Here's what we played:

"Get Up (I Feel Like Being A) Sex Machine" - James Brown

"Bring The Funk" - Ben Harper

"Do Yourself a Faver" - Jamie Lidell
