The Winter Project
Sundays at 6:00 p.m.
- Hosted by Dan Woods
Winter is a great time to catch up on those indoor projects that we tend to put off when the weather is nice and we always have plenty to do outdoors. Dan Woods' winter project is the go through the vast collection of LPs at KRCU. He features music from a wide variety of genres and even features comedy recordings every now and then.
December 24, 2017: It's "A Very Vinyl Christmas" - our holiday spectacular. We'll hear from The Firestone Orchestra & Chorus, Gary Parker and his Studio Sidemen and Gerald Gibson and his "Sing-a-Longers." Plus, several holiday readings and a version of "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" that you probably haven't heard before on the radio.
December 31, 2017: It's Winter Project in the key of B with a "B" in the artist's name or song title. We'll climb the "Big Rock Candy Mountain" with Burl Ives, we'll hear from Bill Monroe and meet a girl named "Barbara Ann" all from LP.
January 7, 2018: This week's show includes great tunes from LP and a whole set of songs about cars. The Beach Boys sing "409" and Bobby Bare tells us about "A Yard Full of Rusty Cars." There are no lemons on this week's show but Roger Miller will sing "Little Green Apples" and we'll hear the harmonies of LadySmith Black Mambazo and more.
January 14, 2018: This week, it's music about hobos, trains and bums. We'll hear " The Hobo's Fate," "Hobo's Lullaby," "Hobo Blues" and much more -- all from LP. Plus, hobo facts and we'll learn some hobo terms.
January 21, 2018: The Winter Project is stuck in the 70s (sort of) with music from Gordon Lightfoot, Dr. Demento and Steve Martin. Plus, we'll hear some classic rock-n-roll along with the Bee Gees and learn about the Ole '97...all from LP.
January 28, 2018: This week it's a program of "Odds & Ends." These are cuts that didn't fit in with the theme of previous shows but I wanted to play them. Our playlist includes Minnie Pearl, Jimmy Driftwood, Luciano Pavarotti and David Holt and friends...all from LP.
