2015-10-25 Live on KUTX!

Oct 29

We did the big show live from KUTX on Sunday, with Elizabeth McQueen co-hosting, and visits from Joe McDermott and Louise McDermott and Sara Hickman!  You can stream it here (click off to the left of the “00:00” – there’s a play button there, it’s just not visible.)

The pledge drive is done and was a big success — but you can and should still donate if you haven’t already, and let ’em know you love Spare the Rock!

Here’s (I think) what we played:

TMBG – It’s Spare the Rock

TMBG – Alphabet of Nations (Studio 1A)

Elizabeth Mitchell – Lovely Day

Dean Jones – Sing Like a Sparrow

Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings – This Land is Your Land (Studio 1A)
