Three singer songwriters share the stage for this week's The New Music Spotlight. Zach Bryan, Aaron Lee Tasjan and Chris Stapleton bring their own versions of honest, emotionally authentice songs to the show this week. We also begin to take a closer look at the albums released in 1971 that have stood the test of time these last fifty years and how the birth of FM radio was the album's ultimate companion. Plus, the songs that began the next chapter of our fragile democracy and why we must never fall asleep again. The World's Greatest Joke Teller who now has her own coffee mug wraps things up with The Joke of the Week.  Be a part of this year's fundraiser and help the show stay strong in 2021.

It's a new dawn, it's a new day, it's a new life and I feel free. The first show of 2021 is all about feelin' good, raisin' the vibration, giving ourselves permission to feel better, to feel a bit lighter. Today we line up the songs that get us up on our feet, move to the groove, cause us to sing and shout and remember that it's okay, especially on New Year's Day, to turn it up. Nina Simone, Michael Franti, Ziggy Marley and many more! The 9th Annual DREAMRAISER starts January 15th with some great gifts and new merchandise!  Thank you so much for all your love and support in 2020. Wishing you and your family peace, health and the music the lights you up. So much love, Camille
This year's Holiday Show is filled with goodness from The Ghost of Christmas Past with songs from Tom Petty, Darlene Love, Bruce Springsten, The Kinks, a gorgeous rendition of O Holy Night by Patti Smith and songs from Alaska that will warm your heart. Because I have lived in Alaska for so long, Santa and I are pretty tight so the show starts with a situation that, until now, nobody knew about! And as I hold my tender heart which is filled with a deep longing for my beloved mother, I share with you her Christmas message from a few years ago and of course, The Joke of the Week. Take care of your own heart this season and if you're needing more CC, check out the archives at Podbean for more Ghosts of Christmas Past. Peace be with you. Much love, Camille
Poetry from Hafiz, David Whyte and Joyce Rupp mixes with the songs of Jethro Tull, Bruce Cockburn, Cat Stevens, David Wilcox, India Arie and others as we honor the importance and meaning of darkness so as to appreciate more deeply the return of the Light. This is a profound time of the year that offers us much if we stop long enough to receive it.  Wishing you and yours peace as we move through these Holy Days together. Take good care of yourself. Enjoy.

Twenty year old Salt Lake City native, Jack Rutter has a terrific new song inside The New Msuic Spotlight entitled, Put Your Records On that deals with, in part, his walk away from the Mormon life.

This week's show is a barn burner with music from Jethro Tull and the reasons why their music was called, "progressive rock." Fast forward to the current crisis that the music industry is in and Ian Anderson has been doing a lot to inform the British government about the plight of the arts and artists due to this pandemic with solutions to consider. Here's that letter he wrote. Forget Amazon and support the arts this holiday season! Plus The New Music Spotlight lights up the sky with Jade Bird and Peach Tree Rascals and we rock out Jersey style while wishing a happy birthday to Southside Johnny. But wait! There's more! Lots of cosmic unfoldings happening and there's a way we can align ourselves with the good vibrations coming our way. The show's question this week is, "how do you feel?!" Enjoy.

Anybody else feel like running? This week's music captures the pent up feelings we have these days when all we want to do is run like hell, somewhere, anywhere.

Celebrating 40 years behind the mic this month with my first interview and another new patron! Thank you Lila Vogt for sponsoring this week's The New Music Spotlight and talk about what's good and new. Two new artists, both in their early twenties, both exceptional songwriters and singers achieving a emotional depth that often comes with many more years of honing one's craft but not for these two. First, it's Cobi and his tremendous new song, Faith in Tomorrow. POWERFUL. Next up Briston Maroney who at 22 years of age is already amassing a huge fan base and you know why with his new song, Deep Sea Diver.  Plus, Happy 75th Birthday to Neil Young, The Joke of the Week goes there and we take some time to digest what's happening in our country and how and why denial works, something I know alittle bit about. Yep, a November to remember! Enjoy.

Mr. Moonlight is shining bright this weekend with the second full moon of the month, known as a blue moon. The phrase, "once in a blue moon" comes from the rare ocassion of having two full moons in one month but that's what makes it Rocktober! It's the first full moon to fall on Halloween in 76 years!! Sounds like 2020 to me. With it, though, comes a big dose of emotions and we let the music do the soothing. Another listeners says yes to becoming a Patron with a monthly membership! Thank you Cindy Decker for sponsoring this week's The New Music Spotlight featuring the first music from Stevie Wonder in 15 years! He's also moved on from Motown Records after 60 years. Featuring Gary Clark Jr, Where is Our Love Song was started by Stevie when he was 18 years old. Such is the case with If I Was the Priest written by Bruce Springsteen when he was in his early 20's. Two legendary artists in their seventies bringing their songwriting full circle. Speaking of full circle, it's been seven years since I left Alaska and though I had no idea what was to be clearly something did. Enjoy. Here's the other song Stevie Wonder has put out ahead of the new album. 
Roctober birthdays kick off the show this week as we wish a very Happy Birthday to Paul Simon, Bob Weir and Justin Hayward. Cake gives us yet another thing to think about when we're trying to fall asleep. The New Music Spotlight this week features a terrific band out of Cincinnati, Ohio calling themselves, The Heavy Hours and their new song, Don't Walk Away. It's fabulous. So is the new album from Bruce Springsteen, "Letter to You" and the new song I'm loving called, I'll See You In My Dreams. Time for the weekend. Turn it up! Enjoy.
This week Sammy Hagar and Eddie Van Halen as well as Lindsey Buckingham and Mick Fleetwood teach us the power of forgiveness and making amends before it's too late. We also honor Johnny Nash who died this week and Tom Petty who would have been 70 on October 20th. In fact, two previously unheard songs from Tom Petty's long anticipated re-issue of his Wildflowers album, "Wildflowers and All the Rest" kick off The New Music Spotlight that includes the powerful new song from Demi Lovato called, Commander in Chief. Cheers to our new listener in London who is helping the show grow in the UK, plus, a bit about this weekend's Women's March and why anger and outrage is the new lady-like.  To wrap it up, The World's Greatest Joke Teller with The Joke of the Week! Enjoy. Like the show? Look forward to it? Can't stop listening?! Become a Patron and support Camille's work behind the microphone. 
Happy 80th Birthday John Lennon! This week's show celebrates the life, music and message of John Lennon with songs from his early days with The Beatles to his 1974 album, "Walls and Bridges" to his return to music in 1980 with the release of "Double Fantasy."  We hear John in his own words talking about his journey from misogynist to feminist along with the words of John and Yoko's photographer, Bob Gruen who I interviewed a few years ago as well as Joe Raiola, the artistic director of the Annual Lennon Tribute which will, for the first time ever, be live streaming to fans across the world all weekend long.
