Taj Mahal August 15, 2013

Taj Mahal August 15, 2013

Nowadays Taj Mahal is an esteemed elder in the blues community. His longevity in the music business gives his music and his voice a resonant credibility. In the valley for the American Renewable Energy Day sessions in Aspen, Taj paid a visit to KDNK to check in with us. From sustainability to talking about those folks who worked from can't see til can't see and created a music that soothed their souls, Taj wowed us all with his majestic vibe. Oh yeah, and he played his beautiful Resonator and croaked a couple songs, including Fishin' Blues. This in-studio was a highlight of the Summer.

Sarah Jarosz on Smokin' Grass July 21, 2012

A young phenom descends into our midst tonight at the PAC3. She's only 21, but her music is accomplished and beautiful, and if you read the credits of her newest CD you'll find names like Bela Fleck, Sam Bush and Jerry Douglas. They already know what Carbondalians are about to find out: her sweeter-than-pie voice is bell clear and her songwriting is superb.   www.sarahjarosz.com

KDNK provides public access radio that connects community members to one another and the world.

KDNK is format-free. The DJs play what they’d like.

So what  you hear on KDNK Community Radio is the best of a whole universe of music filtered through the intelligence and passion of our 100 volunteer DJs. It will always move you, in a way that tight formats and commercial blather never will.

We have 15,000 CDs in our library, 5000 record albums in the attic, and 30,000 tracks in our on-air digital system. We also have DJs with extensive collections of their own.

It all comes together in a wondrous musical gumbo. Former Music Director Skip Naft said it well, “There’s an amazing tolerance and lack of fear at KDNK. It’s wacky and goofy and stupid sometimes and proud of it. KDNK also has its serious and grown-up side, but it knows how to let its freak flag fly.”

Enjoy the music.
