The Mavericks - Words and Music - 2013

The Mavericks reunited in FUV's Studio A to celebrate a new album and to chat with Rita Houston. Listen tonight at 9, and see video here.



The Mavericks (Raul Malo, Robert Reynolds, Paul Deakin, Eddie Perez and Jerry Dale McFadden, with added accompaniment on accordion, bass, saxophone and trumpet) landed in WFUV's Studio A on the eve of releasing their long-awaited reunion album, In Time. The 8-year wait was worth it for fans of the genre-defying Americana-ish combo, who spoke with WFUV's Rita Houston about their varied influences, their early days in Miami, and the joys of playing in a band with a shared history. And there were quite a few laughs as well!
