Fustercluck Blues Festival and Chicken Wing Eating Contest. From who else but~~ the Incredible one and only~ KKFI 90.1 fm Community Radio playing Blues dues out the wazoo!

O there ares soooo many public service announcements one can make! But seldom do they involve a whole lot of music and FUN! Now I’m no chicken eater ever, but if I was, then this little chicken wing eating contest with Blues on the side would definitely be on my tummy’s menu agenda. Oh yeah, KKFI is fundraising again with major Community Support–because, in case you don’t know already, that’s how KKFI has managed to stay alive on the sound waves for over twenty years–people put money in the radio jukebox cash jar of their own free will.  There’s no corporate backers, no media sponsors, just the music makers and the music lovers.  This is truly homegrown radio like you’ve never heard it before folks. It streams on the world-wide web 24/7 –>    http://www.kkfi.org/  .  It’s got volunteer DJs out the wazoo. It’s got a concrete 100,000 watts radius. It’s got indie and local music makers on air and on stage and on the money need feed bag all the time.  We got our Blues, smokin’ hot Jazz, Retro, Latino, Rock, Morning Buzzes M-F, Native Spirit on Sunday afternoon at 5pm with Rhonda LeValdo, Reggae and we even got damn fine L.A. Theatre Works. There’s even Chamber Music and Dr. Mike’s Old Timey Medicine Show. I’ve not even hinted at the Democracy Now! news, eco programs, Tell Somebody, local showcase, Mr. Bill, and Labor coverage.  Swing thru the link and check out The Program Schedule for what you may have a tough time finding anywhere else on one radio station but everywhere on KKFI  90.1 fm. Fuel for your hungry ears.  Now who among you has ever before heard of a Fustercluck Blues Festival featuring Wild Women, Junebugs, Bail Jumpers and Rhythm Kings and a chicken wing eating contest with two categories? Hmm? Come on, share and share alike amigas and amigos.

 

 

 

 

Native American Grammy Music

Here are some of the Native American musical nominees for  the Grammy Award for Native American Music–and New Age ~Dancing Into Silence.   A Spirit’s Dance won in the Native American Album category.   Clicking on the cover art will take you to clips of the music on each album. Canyon Records also has a very interesting audio clip regarding their own history of recording Native American music at

http://store.canyonrecords.com/index.php?app=cms&ns=display&ref=Grammy_Awards_2011

There is a wide variety of wonderful music clips on the Canyon Records site which makes it enjoyable to explore extensively.  

KKFI’s Native Spirit Radio’s host Rhonda LeValdo commented today that she didn’t understand why there was still only one category for Native American music in which pow wow competes against traditional music and other various Native American genres. Yes, every style of Native American music is apparently lumped into one category.

Enjoy whatever you discover.

Wondering what Native Americans think of Johnny Depp playing Tonto in a new film? Well, surf to Native America Calling’s online former broadcasts and find out. Heads up, make sure you’re wearing your satire hat for the “win Depp” show.  There’s an online archive list and summary of several years of broadcasts covering everything from healthcare to water rights  to “matchmaking.” Oh yes, there is  more talk radio in America than the usual media attention beasts bellowing on the sound waves. The discussions on Native America Calling are lively, smart, informative and enjoyable. Harlan McKosato is the show’s host and producer. Listeners are invited to call in and participate in the conversations.

Native America Calling broadcasts live Monday through Friday, 1-2pm Eastern time. 10 am PST.  You can listen online too.

On Monday, February 7, 2011 the topic will be the “State of Indian Education.”  Having blogged my thoughts about the general state of education in America, I’m very interested in hearing this particular broadcast.  

You can view the subjects of this upcoming week’s shows here– http://www.nativeamericacalling.com/

They’re serving everything from Casino Jack to Adapting to Climate Change. And it all gets archived for listening at later dates.

In the Kansas City Metro area there’s only ONE hour a week of radio programming featuring Native American music, news, issues, and people.  Native Spirit Radio airs on www.kkfi.org  hosted by Rhonda LeValdo (Acoma Pueblo),  on Sundays,  5-6pm CST. NSR streams online.

Escape the radio boxes by expanding your listening horizons to Native America Calling.  Sharing your discoveries here is very welcome.
