Puttin Down Roots

 Enjoy Roots and Americana!

Wednesdays from 4pm-6:30pm.



I remember growing up with my parents listening to Fleetwood Mac and the Eagles on the radio.  My Dad is an audiophile and his record collection included artists from the Beatles, The BeeGee’s, The Rolling Stones, Emmylou Harris, to quieter ones like Melanie and Cat Stevens.  I played all of them over and over and my Dad’s love of music, and more specifically, his music genres became my own.
During college I found the Grateful Dead or they found me, but those live shows deepened my passion for live music and recognizing that music connects all of us.  The Grateful Dead’s covers of artists like Marty Robbins and George Jones paved the way for me to lend an ear to country music and Jerry’s music opened my eyes and ears to the homegrown sounds of bluegrass.
I moved to the Big Bend region of Texas, (I grew up in Miami, Florida,) and I fell in love with Texas country and what we now call Americana Music.  This expansive genre remains my favorite and the focus of my show, Puttin’ Down Roots. 
I’ve been a KAFM volunteer/programmer for 11 years and love bringing music to all who listen.
