The Big Takeover at WEXT

It was a chilly afternoon last December when the rockin' reggae band from New Paltz called The Big Takeover worked their way up Interstate-87 to our little studios.  They packed all seven members into our studio.

Their latest album marks their ten year anniversary.  "Silly Girl" takes us on a trip to Jamaica for serious ska and reggae influences.  Hear the results of the session we did below.  

Farewell, Pretty City

Hello Dear Friend,

 

 

It's not easy to tell you this, but after 16 years of being on the radio every week, the final Hello Pretty City radio show will be in early November.

 

It's not WEXT...they are deeply kind and would gladly keep Hello Pretty City on the air. 

 

Rather, it's me.

 

ILONA
Artist

ILONA's voice fills any size room. She's got such power in her voice.  We had a chance to catch up with this wonderful singer-songwriter. She's been recording, writing new songs, and putting out some singles and playing at some festivals. Have a listen. We love having ILONA with her bandmates, Tony Moore (of Cutting Crew and Iron Maiden) and KT Parker.

Kathy Mattea at WEXT

A few years ago, Kathy Mattea was finding that her voice wasn't what it once used to be. It was a cause for serious concern.  After some digging and investigation, she ascertained the change in her voice was something occurring along with the onset of menopause and aging.  She took some advice, and found a new voice teacher.  

After some work and practice, she found the sound for her voice. The result was her new album, "Pretty Bird."

She's at the Troy Savings Bank Music Hall, tonight.

"I wouldn't have pursued music but for trouble," Joni Mitchell once said. Mitchell was referring to real problems — her childhood time spent bedridden with polio and the life-shaping loss she experienced after giving her daughter up for adoption in 1965. Those events solidified the drive that pushed Mitchell forward from small-potatoes rural Canada toward the American meccas where she would prove to be the magnet shifting the needle of pop. But trouble, in all its manifestations, is also Mitchell's muse.

One of the most anticipated showcases at the Americana Music Association's AmericanaFest in Nashville in September was from Los Angeles-based singer-songwriter Sam Morrow. Like many of the artists at the festival, Morrow played multiple shows — six in four days with his band of roots-rockers.
