Test your powers of recollection, Sunday, December 21 at 6 pm.

Go to Poquito y Bueno on the KFAI homepage Programs and Schedule drop down menu and check out the program archive of our July 30 webcast. Listen at your leisure, although it’s hardly a relaxing segment. This half-hour of the solo guitar virtuosos of the last generation will have you picking your jaw up off the floor – absolutely amazing, unbelievable playing!

It’s the kind of singing that drove my father from the room faster than Joan Baez – but then Dad was a fan of Eartha Kitt and Peggy Lee.

maybe it was the voice of the rain crying,
a cracked bell, or a torn heart.
