Saturday, March 7th, 6am - 9am
Shrunken Planet with Jeffrey Davison
Singer-songwriter Itasca (Kayla Cohen) stopped by WFMU recently. Her most recent record, "Unmoored By the Wind" (on New Images) is evidence that the same well that musicians drew from during the "folk revival" of the 1960s and 70s, and later, is in no danger of running dry. Subtly invoking musical textures from the recent past as well as from earlier and even ancient times, Itasca creates songs of a deeply poetic and magical nature.

Todd-o-phonic Todd's show
