Hidden Treasures

How often do we miss great music found in the albums of "hit" radio artists because it wasn't one of the top 40 singles on the radio? All too often I'm afraid. In the next two weeks, we'll remedy that with some "Hidden Treasures."

We have some brand new flavors to introduce to you from up and coming acts like Trespassers William, we'll hear music from their album "Having," featuring a smooth folk blend you're sure to enjoy. Also, new acts like Porlolo, Hockey, and Great Northern.

Also, while we love spending most of our program highlighting acts that haven't received national attention, we're still fans of hit artists, we just love all of their music and not just the hit singles. One band still making great music after spending a while in national prominence is the Dave Matthews Band. These guys suffered some tragedy recently and the subsequent result has been an inspiring new record called "Big Whiskey and the GrooGrux King." Check out this link for a video with insight into the band's current state.

Also, we have hidden treasures from The Boss and a concert recording he did with Rage Against The Machine's Tom Morello.

All this and more coming up on the Appetizer, from Abilene Public Radio
Saturday at 9PM on 89.7 FM in Abilene, TX or anywhere at
