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!
Set your receiver to THE MEDICINE BALL CARAVAN (11am-noon Central Standard on 88.7FM locally or www.krvs.org) for the sounds of Makers Reel, Richard Revue, Roddie Romero & the Hub City All-Stars, another debut from Brother Dege's upcoming one and the latest by both Patty Griffin and Dash Rip Rock. Also: Anders Osborne, Cones of Uncertainty, Lothar & the Hand People, The Cramps and Captain Beefheart.
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.
