Eureka Springs may be best known for its hills full of Victorian and Queen Anne charm, but it's also the home to a synth-driven electronica band called Fossils of Ancient Robots. When I caught up with the three-piece for our debut Soundcheck @ Smoke & Barrel they had five synthesizers on stage. Check out our video from the session, filmed and edited by Sophie Bauer, which includes a conversation with the band and a few of their original tunes.
Protect My Public Media's tagline is "take a stand for the local stations and programs you love." And it's never been easier to do that, with the launch of their brand new and beautifully redesigned website that brings social media to the forefront. Take a look here and share your story on why your local public media outlets, such as KUAF, matter to you and join in their latest campaign to, as they state, "help secure the future of public media."
The 15th Annual KUAF Summer Jazz Series kicks off Saturday, July 13, with jazz legend and Arkansas native Bob Dorough, who you may recognize as the voice to many songs on Schoolhouse Rock. Though raised in Texas, he moved to New York City just after finishing a music degree at the University of North Texas in 1949 and quickly immersed himself into the hotbed of bebop jazz. In 1995 he signed with prestigious Blue Note Records, where he has three albums.
