Live In-Studio: Ukulele Russ on KNBA

Koahnic Broadcast Corporation

Live music this Friday morning on KNBA - 

Ukulele Russ is from Maine, originally, but now calls Fairbanks home - when not on tour.  Certain elements of the experience of living in one of the coldest cites in America influences his music, whether it's the timing of gigs around moose hunting season, wardrobe choices that reflect a less stuffy attitude, or some of the lyrics and witticisms included in his show.

Today on Morning Line:

The Rachel Baiman Band, with a beautiful Americana sound, came by and visited with host Danny Preston and shared some fantastic music.

The band is on tour this summer, and was letting folks know about their new album, Shame, released June 2nd.

Friday June 02, 2017 Ava Earl joined us for a Live In-Studio session as she begins a summer celebration of her new self-titled album. The young artist from Girdwood shines on the new release, her second full album, with well written and confidently delivered songs that were recorded in Portland, OR.  Nothing gets in the way of Ava's stories as the album was recorded with a minimalist approach to capture the same delicate but confident presentation you get when seeing and hearing her live.
