by Corny O'Connell

From time to time you may hear an artist or band that get's you to wondering, "Whatever happened to...?" You haven't heard anything new from them in a while and you can't remember the last time they were around to perform. We're not looking for the answers. Just give us someone who seems to have dropped off the radar. We'll spin a set after 9am.

by Corny O'Connell

We're celebrating live music this this week for our Fall member drive. Today we're asking, which artist or band of those you have yet to see, have you just got to see? Wer'e not talking hypothetically, so limit your response to artists and bands that are still performing. Who haven't you seen, that you most want to see?

Here's what we played:

Jack White "I'm Shakin'"

Gary Clark, Jr. "Travis County"

Kate Bush "The Sensual World"

Tom Waits "The Heart of Saturday Night"

Question of the Day: Big Name, Small Room

by Corny O'Connell

We're focusing on live performances for WFUV's Fall member drive. Here's your chance to boast about having seen an artist perform in a small club before they hit the big time. Or perhaps you've seen a big name play a venue that's unusually intimate for them. Either way, let us know in the comments below and we'll spin a set after 9am.

By the way, WFUV marquee members get to attend our private concerts in intimate venues like Rockwood Music Hall, City Winery and Hill Country Live. Learn more here.
