The Whole Wide World Tonight!

The Whole Wide World ahead tonight with new music from Antibalas, the xx, Amy Cook, Tom Tom Club, Poor Moon, The Very Best and classics from Sly, T Rex, and Talking Heads. Plus, I am honored to have Rodriguez for a rare interview and solo performance.  He’s a movie star now with his unbelievable, unlikely story being told in the new documentary, Searching for Sugar Man. The film is well done and will move you. In our session Rodriguez reflects on his past with humility and grace.  It’s an amazing story.

Congratulations, Rita!

Big congratulations to our own Rita Houston, who was awarded the 2012 Music Director of the Year award this past weekend at the FMQB Triple A Conference in Boulder, Colorado. (Triple A, or AAA, stands for Adult Album Alternative, our radio category.) Our friends at The Current in the Twin Cities took home Station of the Year, and several more of our favorite colleagues took home some snazzy plaques.

Tonight On the Whole Wide World: Cold Specks!

by Tim Pierson

Tonight on The Whole Wide World Rita Houston spins a mix of great stuff both new and old. From brand new Mumford and Sons to classic Nat King Cole, tonight's show really runs the musical gamut. The show will also feature a live session from a new artist. Cold Specks, the stage name of London-based, Canadian singer-songwriter Al Spx, stopped by Studio A earlier this week to talk with Rita Houston about her forthcoming album I Predict A Graceful Expulsion. A very humble, softspoken, even a bit quirky young woman began to speak.
