The Apache Relay - FUV Live - 2014

by Eric Holland

To open their self-titled second album earlier this year, The Apache Relay recorded something of a masterpiece in the song "Katie Queen of Tennessee."  Singer/guitarist Michael Ford Jr. and Brett Moore (keys/guitar/mandolin) were quick to share credit with the string arranger Jimmy Haskee (who has an Emmy and three Grammys) and Johnathan Rice (yes, the one from Jenny and Johnny and his own career), who they cold-called after getting out to L.A. to record at Fairfax Recordings.

Mark Erelli - Sunday Breakfast - 2014

by John Platt
Jeremy Rainer

Mark Erelli has been one of New England's finest, if underrated, singer-songwriters for many years. On his new album, "Milltowns," he pays tribute to one of his heroes, another son of New England, the late Bill Morrissey. He made a return visit to the Sunday Breakfast to talk about his relationship with Bill and perform songs from the album, accompanied by Charlie Rose (no, not the TV journalist, but a master of pedal steel guitar and banjo).

2014 was a pretty incredible year for Tim Showalter. The Philly-based songwriter released his latest album as Strand of Oaks called Heal to widespread critical acclaim. He also enjoyed more success at radio and in touring than ever before. Much of that can be attributed to Tim’s outgoing, joyous personality. I’ve had the pleasure of talking with Tim on a few occasions and the conversations always found their way back to music of all kinds. Those conversations inspired the idea to have different artists come up to WFUV to play some of their favorite songs and albums of the year, and here is Tim's takeover of FUV airwaves!

Daniel Lanois - FUV Live - 2014

by Darren DeVivo
Daniel Lanois not only established himself in the '80s as a renowned singer and songwriter, but also as one of rock's most influential producers thanks to his work with U2. Lanois collaborated with the Irish superstars on six albums, including The Unforgettable Fire and The Joshua Tree. He was the producer or co-producer for acclaimed albums by Bob Dylan (Oh Mercy, Time Out Of Mind), Peter Gabriel (So, Us, the Birdy soundtrack), Robbie Robertson (his self-titled solo debut album) and the Neville Brothers (Yellow Moon). Over the past 25 years, Lanois has brought his magical sonic innovations to albums by Emmylou Harris, Luscious Jackson, Willie Nelson and Neil Young. Every so often, Daniel takes time to create his own music. His first album was 1989's wonderful Acadie and now he presents his latest offering, Flesh And Machine.

From the lyrics he sings, it's plain that Craig Finn is a wordsmith and someone who enjoys language and storytelling. And as Sydney Greenstreet said to Humphrey Bogart in "The Maltese Falcon," I'm a man who enjoys talking to a man who likes to talk! The Hold Steady are wrapping up this year with two shows (December 30 and 31) at the Music Hall of Williamsburg with fellow Brooklynites The So So Glos. As a lead-in to those spirited shows, enjoy some on-air conversation with Craig as he joins FUV Live for a guest DJ stint.
