Tom Brosseau performing at DMA on March 12!

Davis Media Access and Davis Live Music Collective co-present Tom Brosseau!

Tom Brosseau is touring in support of his new album, Perfect Abandon, comprised of 10 songs of people, places, things and prayers. Produced in Bristol UK by John Parish, Perfect Abandon was recorded live using one microphone- just like music from the bad ol' days of folk- and features a pre-rock sound of two-piece drum kit, double bass, organ and Stratocaster guitar.

Tom will be performing in our studios on March 12 and you are invited!   Ben Lewis and Brian Morgan are opening, and tickets are available here.

More information about this show is here.  And information about Tom's latest release is here.

A Note From the Director

Some days I pause and think, “10 years? Has it been 10 years?” It has been 10 years! In September, Davis Media Access (DMA) kicked off a yearlong celebration of KDRT-LP 95.7 FM’s 10th year on the air. That decade has brought much growth and change, and some growing pains. These days, there’s a renewed spirit of excitement about radio in general, and KDRT specifically. We’re pleased to welcome a new batch of programmers, thrilled about the growing collaboration between the KDRT and DCTV studios, community programmers and local musicians, and bouncing around ideas for some benefit concerts to properly celebrate this milestone. Looking forward to sharing specifics next month.

Also hitting the 10-year mark is the work being done by Jann Murray-Garcia, Kevin Williams and others within the Davis Joint Unified School District. Last fall, DMA recorded the 10-year Equity Luncheon. We’ve paired that with some other programs related to the work coming out of the Race & Social Justice class at Davis High School, and collected it here.

Also airing on DCTV and up online currently is this year’s Martin Luther King Jr. celebration, held last month at The Varsity Theatre in downtown Davis.

I hope you enjoy this month’s look at locally produced content, and opportunities to learn new skills through your community media center.
