Happy New Year! It was a morning with some new songs from albums to come: The Ericksons (new one “The Wild” out in a couple weeks), Dan Newton’s Cafe Accordion Orchestra (new one “La Zingara” to be celebrated in a few days) and Cody ChesnuTT (new one “Landing on a Hundred” out tomorrow).

Our guests this morning were Jenny and Bethany of The Ericksons, joining us in studio the week of their release party for “The Wild” at the Cedar Cultural Center. We had a great conversation about songwriting, great women who have lit up the stage before them, and taking the next step in their music craft. We also heard new music from Joshua James and Vicky Emerson.

PWB was pre-empted this morning for special coverage of the Presidential Inauguration and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day presented by KFAI News and Democracy Now!.

Thanks to Mark Koerner for filling in for me this morning. He was joined by a friend and spun some classics by Curtis Mayfield, Alice Cooper and The Ramones, as well as some new local music by Teenage Moods.
