Original rock and roll lives on KRVS. While searching for records to play on "Big Band Swings", I've also picked up some interesting 1950s tunes---and just as BBS has become BBS and other things, Old Gold starts out as a big mix of musical genres, with an emphasis on rock, roll, rhythm, and my favorite, novelty!
Thursday's MEDICINE BALL CARAVAN lineup (11am-noon Central Standard on 88.7FM locally or www.krvs.org) includes the latest releases by Jeffery Broussard & the Creole Cowboys, Joss Stone, Nick Waterhouse, Dr. John, Dayna Kurtz along with some vintage Soul, Rock & Blues thrown in the mix by Johnny Taylor, Ike Turner, Rudy Ray Moore, Ray Charles, Lightnin' Hopkins, Clifford Curry, Eric Burdon, The Floyd Dakil Combo and The Roughnecks (pre-Velvets Lou Reed).
Every morning, thousands of Cajun French music lovers tune in to KRVS to start their day with Pete Bergeron and "Bonjour Louisiane." Like morning coffee, "Bonjour Louisiane" gets you up and going with traditional Cajun French favorites and the latest releases from talented newcomers. Brush up on your French, find out about the fairs and festivals, and share the "joie de vivre" of French Louisiana.
