Sharon Jones sadly died of cancer last year, but while receiving treatment managed to record one last album. Soul of a Woman by Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings is high-energy, bold, and ultimately optimistic.
This week we'll also hear new music from Blitzen Trapper. Lead singer Eric Early describes Wild and Reckless as a stepchild to their 2008 album Furr. He says “Ten years after Furr, with all its talk of murder and the end of the western world, it seems there’s more to tell about the end of America.”
Left of the Dial airs Fridays nights from 9-11 and Saturdays from noon-2 on KRCU.
