Question of the Day: Left-Handed?

by Corny O'Connell

It's International Left-Handers Day - a day for lefties to celebrate their sinistrality. It's also a day to raise awareness of the frustrations of being left-handed. Try using a computer mouse or driving a stick shift. Am I right lefties? Anyway, let's celebrate with music by left-handers. I'll spin a set of your suggestions after 9am with my left hand.

Here's what we played:

"Rainy Day, Dream Away" - The Jimi Hendrix Experience

"Born Under a Bad Sign" - Albert King

"What Does It Mean Now?" - World Party

White Hinterland - FUV Live - 2014

by Carmel Holt

Baby is the third full-length album released by Casey Dienel under the moniker White Hinterland. The classically-trained New England musician began work on her new album with a very DIY attitude, teaching herself production methods and even building her own studio. During the process of recording these deeply personal songs about heartbreak and frustration, she found that she was actually surrounded by a great network of family and friends. The new songs on Baby showcase Dienel’s natural talent as a vocalist and newfound talent as a producer. On a recent visit to WFUV, Casey played us a couple of tunes live in Studio A and talked about her music.
