2/15/13 - WE HAVE A FULL HOUSE AND ARE NO LONGER TAKING REGISTRATIONS.
Kelly Richey has been described as “Stevie Ray Vaughan trapped in a woman’s body with Janis Joplin screaming to get out.” That's probably enough to make you want to register to see her band kick off the Spring 2013 edition of Studio 89, but we'll tell you a little more about what to expect.
WNKU's long-running live radio show featuring established and emerging musicians from around the world performing in front of a live studio audience, returns to the airwaves on Monday, February 18th. The show will air live Monday nights at 7:00 pm until the season finale on May 6th.
To suggest that Steve Poltz isn’t normal is about as safe a statement as one could make. You would basically require the powers of the Hubble space telescope to locate Steve Poltz from any region of normalcy. For music fans on both sides of the equator, this is a very good thing.
It's not often we have a friend and neighbor from Northern Kentucky who goes on to get signed by Sub Pop Records. Daniel Martin Moore is a singer and songwriter from just down the road from the WNKU studios in Cold Spring, Kentucky.
Whether they're doing all originals or playing their Beatles set while headlining the largest Beatles tribute festival in the country, Abbey Road on the River, The Newbees know how to put on a show. And now, they're bringing that show to Studio 89 complete with horn and string sections to celebrate the release of their brand new CD, Modern Vintage, which you've been hearing on WNKU.
Eleni Mandell has been making records since 2000. Growing up in Los Angeles in the 1980s, Mandell attended mostly punk and underground rock shows but was inspired as a young songwriter by Tom Waits, X, Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen, and Randy Newman.
Studio 89 has grown to include both a spring and fall series! The fall series begins September 17th and will again air Monday nights at 7:00pm. Each session will include a live studio audience of WNKU members. Not yet a member? Become one today or make a donation and become a member on the spot!
Bill Kirchen gave a masters class in music history at Molly Malone’s in Covington Tuesday night. The difference between his presentation and a college lecture was the fact that he was thoroughly entertaining as well as enlightening.
Kirchen, the “Titan of the Telecaster,” is in his mid 60s but retains the impish gleam that he must have had at Ann Arbor (Mich.) High School where he went to class with Iggy Pop. He plays with such joy that it’s immediately obvious why his band is called Too Much Fun.
