Certainly one of the most anticipated Americana releases of this early new year, Aoife O’Donovan’s Age Of Apathy arrives this Friday from Yep Roc Records. The songwriter has been vividly visible in recent years, recording and touring with the elite Goat Rodeo Sessions ensemble while her trio I’m With Her won Grammy and Americana awards. But in Episode 195 of The String, we focus on her first new solo album since In The Magic Hour six years ago.
  • A long, cold week lies ahead, but keep your eyes on the prize - the noontime video teleportation device that is Finally Friday at Home, taking us to the inner sanctums of recording artists and songwriters with something new to say. This week we look out to Oregon for the heart-rending neo country songcraft of Margo Cilker and just across town for a set by Music City good-at-everything-guy Adam Shoenfeld.
  • A new entrant into the fast-growing, backlogged record pressing business found a historic home in Asheville, NC that's let it become an anchor in the community and an entire musical ecosystem. Visitors to Citizen Vinyl in the 1939 Asheville Citizen Times newspaper building can watch records get made while they sip drinks, eat farm-to-table food, and shop for vinyl and art. Craig visited last fall and CEO Gar Ragland showed him around for this audio special report.
  • Join WMOT just before the weekend for the return of Finally Friday. We're still streaming artists from their home bases, but we're approaching the return of live shows from the new Eastside Bowl in Madison. This week's guests, Rob Aldridge and the Proponents, plus Lord Nelson.
