Tue. 5/11 7p: As many of our DJs and volunteers are producing from home due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Bodie Russell, a KUNM student employee, took a closer look and listen at the Home of Happy Feet. In late 2020 and early 2021, Russell interviewed Karl Stalnaker and Harry Norton to get a better understanding of what is so unique about the show, its history, the importance of vinyl records, and what the deejays have been up to lately. This culmination is a one-hour radio documentary called “Who Still Plays 78s?” A Home of Happy Feet Special.

Albuquerque native Bobby Shew spends his 69th birthday talking with host Mark Weber about all things trumpet.

Big birthday party for maestro Bobby Shew who was born this very day in Albuquerque back when Tingley was mayor (1941). I'm not sure we'll discuss surfing the Rio Grande but we will be discussing all things trumpet. Bobby Shew's illustrious career continues to take him around the world and into every dimension. His knowledge of trumpet is staggering. SO, that's what we'll talk about. Host Mark Weber.

BSC is proud to dedicate an entire program this week to Mavis Staples, live from the Legendary Rhythm and Blues Cruise.

Born in 1940 in Chicago, most of Mavis Staples' career has been as lead singer for the legendary Staple Singers. Her otherworldly power comes instead from a masterful command of phrasing and a deep-seated sensuality expressed through timbre manipulation.
