Hey, I get to open the new year! Kickin’.
Ahem. So, anyway, it was a very good year for artists in the OverEasy universe. Paul Simon visited IU Auditorium for a show that we got to broadcast live, G. Love collaborated with the Avett Brothers, Amos Lee collaborated with Calexico, one of the Black Keys produced an album for another Ohio artist, Pink Floyd released a surprising early version of a classic song with help from a legendary jazz violinist, Tony Bennett celebrated a big birthday with a new duets album, the Decemberists put out two studio recordings in one year, Iron and Wine visited Sun King Studio 92, and Gillian Welch and Tom Waits released their first new work in almost a decade. And that’s for starters, friends.
Now obviously, we can’t cover everything we would have liked in the show that will open the New Year, but we will get a healthy scoop of some significant material, this Sunday on 92.3 WTTS from 7 to 11am AND pm, on OverEasy.
Have a safe New Year. See you on Sunday.
