    How has the music on the Village been since the merger ?

    Is it still one of the better programed channels on XM ?

    I still want them to put The Village on Sirius, not just XM. I know it’s on Sirius on the internet, that does me no good if I’m in the car.

    Steve is very entertaining and a damn good banjo player with the Steep Canyon Rangers. Even though he tries to stay serious, his natural humor always peeks through every once in a while. They were great on the PBS 4th of July special "A Capitol Fourth."

    Steve is a badass on the banjo. He can hang with Bela Fleck. Very impressive.

    Sun 10/28 6:00 am ET
    This week Mary Sue Twohy speaks with Art Garfunkel about his latest album "The Singer" around 8:30 AM ET. Tune in!

    [​IMG]


    Amazon Review:
    Pulling together one man's remarkable career in music, The Singer is a 34-song collection of songs hand-picked by the artist himself. Spanning a life's body of work from the first Simon & Garfunkel album of 1964 (Wednesday Morning, 3 AM) through 2007's Great American Songbook album (Some Enchanted Evening) and continuing with two newly recorded performances for this release ("Lena" and "Long Way Home"). The Singer includes every #1 U.S. and UK solo hit "All I Know," "Breakaway," "I Only Have Eyes For You," "My Little Town" (with Paul Simon), "(What A) Wonderful World" (with Simon & James Taylor), "Bright Eyes" and more!

    In addition to curating The Singer, Garfunkel provides his own personal track-by-track annotations, which appear in the booklet in his handwritten form. The notes are as unique as Garfunkel himself.

    The voice and soul of a true American poet have illuminated the work of Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame inductee Art Garfunkel for nearly five decades. It is there on record the Simon & Garfunkel LPs of 1964 to 1970 on Columbia, and his deep catalog as a solo artist starting in 1973 (the first six albums also on Columbia) as well as in film, and on the printed page (his 1987 collection of prose poetry, Still Water). Five-time Grammy® Award-winner Art Garfunkel has always approached every new project with the poet's perspective.

    "What is the singing voice to me? A name, a skill, or a flag I see? A certain thrill the gift of glide, the ride on the cusp of emotion, uplift from the heart to the cords, love for the song, for the sound." Art Garfunkel.

    I caught this show this morning. Sometimes I'm up and listen, sometimes not. I haven't heard Breakaway since I was sophomore in high school.

    Mary Sue Twohy speaks with Kathy Mattea about her latest album "Calling Me Home" on Sugarhill - the singing, the songs and the making of the album. Join us!

    Amazon Review
    Most artists take fewer and fewer risks as they get older, but Kathy Mattea is a striking exception. She didn't play it safe while she charted mainstream country hits 16 of them reaching the top ten and she's not about to start now. Four years ago, Mattea, one of the most sure-footed country-pop song interpreters of her generation, caught everyone off guard with an album of old-timey Appalachian mining songs called Coal. She s delved even deeper into her Appalachian heritage with Calling Me Home, available from Sugar Hill. Co-produced with modern acoustic mastermind Gary Paczosa and featuring liner notes from bestselling author, and Kentucky-born kindred spirit, Barbara Kingsolver.
