Noam Pikelny In-Studio

Mar 10, 2017

I don't know if all banjo players are as inherently humorous as their instrument, but Noam Pikelny assuredly is. He dropped by before his Wheeler gig and talked about his new CD Universal Favorite. Turns out it was recorded the day after his hometown team's historic World Series win last fall, and the last day of recording was the day before a momentous election. So it was recorded when hell froze over. Twice. Auspicious!

ARTIST INTERVIEWS

Elephant Revival Live on KDNK

One of the quintessential Colorado bands dropped by KDNK on their way to their sold out Wheeler gig. They didn't have to do that! Especially ahead of a sold-out gig. But they did, and that is a testament to their good-hearted decency. And it's a testament to their support of Community Radio in Colorado. They played a couple tunes from their new CD Petals, Season Song and Home in Your Heart. And they played a couple older tunes, Remember a Beginning and Rogue River.
