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.
January 11, 2015: It's an hour of classic country with music of Johnny Cash, Merle Haggard, John Denver, Dolly Parton and more...all from LP.
January 18, 2015: 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 25, 2015: The Winter Project is stuck in the 70s (sort 0f) with music from Gordon Lightfoot, Dr. Demento and Steve Martin. Plus, we'll hear some classic rock-n-roll, dance along with Bee Gees and learn about the Ole '97...all from LP.
February 1, 2015: It's all about two-fers with two songs played back to back by the same artist. We'll hear two from Alan Sherman including "Spanish Flea," a couple from Tex Ritter, Bill Monroe and many more -- all from LP -- on the next Winter Project.
February 8, 2015: Valentine's Day is almost here so this week's show features songs about love and romance. We'll hear music from Buck Owens with "My Heart Skips a Beat," some calypso music from Peter Ricardo, "Behind These Prison Walls of Love" from the Blue Sky Boys and many more...all from LP.
February 15, 2015: On this Winter Project...sad songs, silly songs and some "Hard Luck and Misery." We'll hear from Burl Ives, Harry Belafonte, Doc Watson, Jean Redpath and more...all from LP.
February 22, 2015: 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 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 on The Winter Project.
March 1, 2015: 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 Hold and Friends...all from LP.
March 8, 2015: This week, it's the smallest show we've ever done. All of our songs from LP are about little or small things. We'll hear "Little Blossom," "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star," "Little Honda" and more...all from LP.
March 15, 2015: Just in time for St. Patrick's Day...an hour of Irish music. We'll hear "The Cat," "The Leprechaun" and "The Unicorn." Plus, we’ll listen to the music of Celtic Thunder and about the girl whose hair was tied up with that Black Velvet Band. All that and a few surprises from Garrison Keillor, too...all from LP.
March 22, 2015: "Play It Again, Dan" - this week, songs that are so good, we could probably play them twice. Our list includes Johnny Cash's "Ring of Fire," the Dave Brubeck Quartet's "Take Five" and "Sweet Caroline" by Waylon Jennings. Plus, folk music from Cathy Barton & Dave Para and the Swedish pop group ABBA and "Dancing Queen." All that and more...all from LP.
March 29, 2015: This week, Stan Freberg sings about television on the radio as we play LPs from the bottom shelf of our collection. We'll hear from Ray Stevens with "Popeye the Sailor Man" and we'll have something for the golfers, too, by Oscar Brand and his Sandtrappers. Plus, Pete Seeger, John Lee Hooker and some classic rock-n-roll on the last Winter Project of the season.
