The Hear and Now – April 16, 2015

this episode is no longer available


The Hear and Now is a freeform mix of music ranging from singer-songwriter folk and surprising back-catalog rock ’n’ roll to avant-garde jazz and improvisation, with unexpected forays into everything in between and beyond. Bits of comedy, international sounds, and contemporary and postmodern classical composition crop up now and then, and local and touring musicians stop by frequently for conversations and fully produced in-studio concerts.
