The Deer Live on KDNK

Feb 24, 2017

"I'm drinking up morphine/Straight from the vial/Me in my darkness/You in my mind."

The Deer, Austin's answer to Elephant Revival, has an elliptical way with a lyric and delicate but complex melodies that surround and suffuse the words, and it adds up to something psychedelic and irresistable. They were in town to play at Steve's Guitars and they dropped by KDNK to say hello and play Winter to Pry and Up Into Roses from their recent CD Tempest and Rapture. They also played an older song, Shades of Tiffany

KDNK's local newscast airs weekday mornings at 6:41 and 7:41, and again at 5:34 PM.

Former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords has a message for members of Congress who are citing the possibility of protests as a reason not to hold town meetings: "Have some courage."

Giffords, wounded in a 2011 shooting outside a Tucson supermarket where she was meeting with constituents, was responding to a statement by Republican Congressman Louis Gohmert of Texas. Asked why he wasn't holding public meetings, Gohmert said:

President Trump has promised to build a wall along the 2,000 miles of the U.S.-Mexico border.

A third of that border already has a barrier, thanks to the Secure Fence Act of 2006, which was signed by then-President George W. Bush. That initiative ran into issues with landowners near the Rio Grande. If the wall goes forward as Trump promises, more lawsuits may be coming.

KDNK's local newscast airs weekdays at 6:41 and 7:41 and again at 5:34 PM.

With a nudge of a robotic arm, astronauts aboard the International Space Station captured a space capsule carrying 5,500 pounds of cargo early Thursday.

"Capture confirmed," NASA TV's announcer stated at 5:44 a.m. ET. The capture took place as the space station and the SpaceX capsule flew in orbit 250 miles over Australia's northwest coast.

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.
