Upcoming events

March 25: “ LIVE DiRT” (encompasses what was  formerly “Live in the Loam”) is a live music feature of KDRT radio – sometimes happening in local venues, sometimes live in the KDRT or DCTV studios. “LIVE DiRT” has no fixed schedule and “pops up” whenever musical artists can merge their touring schedule with KDRT programming.

This week, “LIVE DiRT: features Lance Canales and the Flood live in the KDRT studio on Friday, March 25 beginning at 2:30 p.m. Lance Canales & The Flood are a roots/blues-influenced Americana trio from Fresno, California, where Canales lived the life that so many songs have been written about since the birth of roots music: hard labor, one-room shacks and taunting ghosts whispering of a better life. DJ Dug Deep hosts.
