We had a visit with the Playin' With Fire Band.  During the visit, Kim told us the story behind her song (and album title track), "Closer Than We Know." She wrote it for her best friend, whom she lost when Pan Am Flight 103 was bombed over Scotland in 1988.  We hear that story, and a few songs performed live at WEXT in this special 518 Session.

Blue Factory Powered By Noises poster
Artist

Local 518 band Blue Factory have been hard at work on their new album, "Powered By Noises." This time out, they decided to go with putting it out on vinyl - no CD.  You do get a download card for the digital you, too. 

Jim Crawley and Jim Temple stopped by to discuss their process, and let us in on the show happening Friday night (10/26) at The Hangar.

Jim Gaudet & Chris Wienk
WEXT

One of my favorite musicians is Jim Gaudet. It is always a treat when he comes by to sit and chat. After seeing him this summer, I had invited him by. I knew that he'd been working on some new songs as he tried to stump the Railroad Boys by calling for the new songs (with almost no rehearsal) in the set list.  The Boys are always of good humor and will launch into almost any song Jim calls for.

Peter Annello

When Peter Annello first came to us, he knocked us out with his charm and guitar playing abilities.  He's been working on his playing - playing out, going to cool guitar and music workshops like the ones at Cample Cripple Creek (summer of 2018) where he met and impressed Larry Campbell and others.

We keep admiring Peter's drive and his songs.  Now, he's out of high school, and he keeps impressing.  Check out his session with the trio, his father Chip Annello on drums and Paul Zullo on bass.
