Question of the Day: Gambling

by Corny O'Connell

Since this has become vice week for the Question of the Day, we'll continue the trend with songs about gambling. I bet you can come up with some. List them in the comments below and we'll spin a set after 9am.

Here's what we played:

"The Lucky One" - Freedy Johnston

"Casino Queen" - Wilco

"Chips Ahoy!" - The Hold Steady

"Viva Las Vegas" - Shawn Colvin

"Ooh Las Vegas" - Gram Parsons

Ryley Walker - FUV Live - 2014

by Carmel Holt

Chicago guitarist and songwriter Ryley Walker released his first full-length album, All Kinds of You, earlier this year. It is stacked with warm acoustic guitars and organic drums, and reminds us why folk songs have such longevity in the history of American music. Ryley recently stopped by Studio A to play a couple of new songs, and he also spoke with me about his debut.

Hozier - FUV Live at Electric Lady Studios - 2014

by Russ Borris

Mixing soulful and gospel sounds with classic rock formulas, Hozier (a.k.a. Andrew Hozier-Byrne) is a multi-instrumentalist and songwriter from Ireland. After releasing two successful EPs, his much anticipated self-titled debut album is set for U.S. release on October 7th. With his band, Hozier recently played an FUV Live set at Electric Lady Studios, and he also talked with me about his past and upcoming recordings and performing at the Newport Folk Festival.

Question of the Day: Love for Sale

by Corny O'Connell
"Olympia" by Manet

Yesterday we asked for songs about addiction and a couple of listeners suggested "Jane Says" by Jane's Addiction. It's a song about a drug-addicted prostitute. Taking that as our cue, today we're looking for songs about sex workers - women of the night, streetwalkers. (Yes, we're taking a walk on the wild side.) Leave your suggestions in the comments below and we'll spin a set after 9am.

Here's what we played:

Townes Van Zandt "Tecumseh Valley"
