10:00am Real! Live! Phone Interview with Kelley Deal and Mike Montgomery of R. Ring! You may know Kelley as a member of Breeders with her sister, Kim Deal Music. She has now joined forces with Mike Montgomery to form R. Ring, a project of voices, guitars and keys. It is sparse, chaotic, abrasive and lulling, often within the same song.
10:15am From Nashville, Tennessee: Lorie Jo Bridges! In the year 2000, Kasey Rausch was walking down a dirt road at the Walnut Valley Festival in Winfield, Kansas. Heading the opposite way on the same dirt road at the same time was Lorie Jo Bridges, a Topeka, Kansas native. A fast friendship was born. Lorie Jo has been singing and writing songs from a very young age. She moved to Nashville, Tennessee over ten years ago to hone her writing skills. After a hiatus from performing due to a decision to go back to school, she is now pre-paring to share all of the music she's been saving up.
Hosted by Kansas City music makers Mikal Shapiro Music and Kasey Rausch Music, River Trade Radio is a live radio program dedicated to the song trade as it connects to Kansas City featuring live touring and local guests in-studio with elements of Americana, Folk, Blues, Bluegrass, Roots, Country, Jazz and more.
We aim to share our love for Kansas City, songwriting, and musical collaboration by creating a fresh dialogue about our local Roots music community - from its connections with touring artists and international influences to its historical and contemporary contributions to the craft of the song.
