Art Of The Song 7:00 am
Darryl Purpose

our guest this week on Art of the Song is Darryl Purpose. With a storyteller?s heart Darryl has connected with audiences in the top folk venues in the country, including Club Passim, McCabe?s, The Bluebird Cafe, and The Kennedy Center. In the nineties he joined with a group of musicians and peaceniks to walk across the entire United States for peace. In 2005, Darryl put down the guitar and resumed his former career as a professional card player. During that time he earned enough money to buy two houses, one for himself and one for his mother. He is one of 17 members of the Blackjack Hall of Fame. Thankfully, Darryl has returned to music. In 2012 he released the highly acclaimed CD, Next Time Around, which spent five weeks at number one on the Roots Music Report folk chart. We spoke with Darryl in our Albuquerque Studios about music, card playing and healthy living

Etown 7:00 am
Dave Alvin / Max Gomez

eTown welcomes back Grammy Award winning singer/songwriter Dave Alvin this week. He?s worn many hats over his long career as a songwriter, producer, session musician and even as an actor in television shows and movies on occasion. Rolling Stone magazine has called him ?an under recognized guitar hero,? and we couldn?t agree more. Also joining us: young, talented folk singer and songwriter Max Gomez. Great live music, compelling conversation and an inspiring E-Chievement Award story this week of two New Yorkers building and fixing bikes for their low-income neighbors
