PREVIOUS SHOW: Happy (Chinese) New Year!
Yes, another New Year to celebrate. I’m told we’re starting the year of the White Metal Rat — so… music from China and Chinese artists, other new year tunes, and a few songs about rats. And one song about a mouse.
January 31: Retracing Alan Lomax
It’s the birthday of pioneering ethnomusicologist Alan Lomax, so we’ll trace his travels through sound, spinning some tracks from his recordings along more contemporary songs from the same places, from a calypso concert in 1946 to a visit to Morocco in 1967.
February 7: Happy Birthday, Bob!

Have a fave Bob tune? Your requests welcome: leave a note on the STG Facebook page, or call 360-867-5267.
February 14: Love, Factually
Love is complicated. So we’ll observe Valentine’s Day with songs of love, heartache, hope, dating, breakups, and other complications. Wherever you are, we’ve got you covered, musically speaking.
