 Singer-songwriter-guitarist Erik Balkey paid a visit to the WCVF-FM studios
this afternoon for an interview/performance. Not only did he turn the ears
of the folks hanging around the studio, he generated the most phone response
of the day as well. It seems people have been paying attention, because the
callers were very conversant with the Balkey songs played on "General
Eclectic" in the past. We might just be generating a following for
intelligently-written and effectively sung topical songs in this area. Other
phone calls came in for Neil Jacobs, the flute and electric guitar duo
Valuri de Matase, Sonny Landreth singing Randy Newman, and Avram Fefer and
Bobby Few. The long-missing Zaxariades CD finally arrived this week, and
also proved to be a listener favorite. To the playlist:
