Influences: Past, Present, and Future

An investigation into how musical styles and genres mirror and differ from each other over generations. Focusing on three artists per show, “Influences” will explore how their musical styles, techniques, and philosophies, influenced each other and how each in turn has influenced their genre and music as a whole. Approximately one- third of the time allocated for music will be dedicated to each artist, with intermissions in between each song set to  describe how those songs are linked.

With focus placed on a variety of musical genres, “Influences” will explore how
interconnected music is, and how that will continue for years to come.

Deja Vu

Host:   Larry Solomon:     Rock and jazz-fusion music that was initially played on the so-called “underground” FM radio stations that existed in the late 1960’s and early-mid 1970’s (i.e., no “hits” or “Top 40”)

The show features lesser-known album tracks and “music with meaning” (i.e. social relevance). Although this will be the basis, this will not preclude the inclusion of music from other decades, especially that which was produced by artists with their beginnings in the late 1960’s – early/mid 1970’s.

Concentrated corporate ownership of commercial radio stations has hurt the ability for stations to serve their communities, and while satellite radio (Sirius/XM) can fill some of the void in the music, there is no “localism” or community orientation in the satellite radio world.

“Live” Archives

Carrboro Live! broadcasted from the Carrboro ArtsCenter as well as  other local venues.  Shows are now re-broadcasts.  This has resulted in an archive of local event broadcasts, experiments in weird live radio, and national specials on music luminaries. Sometimes we have tickets and CD’s to give away as well.

We started years ago on Thursday evenings, with an eclectic mix of live interviews with local singers, songwriters, musicians, and drop-in politicians – frequently including State Senator Ellie Kinnaird, Carrboro Mayor and Aldermen, and many local social justice activists.  Since then, we have featured live Town Hall meeting commentary, and recordings of memorials to local social justice leaders including Joe Straley, Rebecca Clark, and Yonni Chapman.

The first live remote broadcast was the town of Chapel Hill’s dedication of MLK Boulevard (historic Airport Road).
