Arts & Culture

For the first week of KFAI’s spring pledge drive, we celebrate with guests Willie Murphy and Roy McBride.

Willie Murphy has been writing, performing, recording and producing Blues/RB music for over 30 years. His 1969 collaboration with folk/blues legend Spider John Koerner, Running, Jumping, Standing Still, is still acclaimed as an all-time folk/blues classic.

Roy McBride has been an innovator in the Twin Cities spoken word scene for over 30 years.

Together, they recorded a spoken word CD, Traffic, in 1986, but the original tapes were lost by the CD manufacturer. A duplicate master was recently found, and Traffic has just now been released. The artistic and political message is even more relevant now than when it was first recorded.
