At 11:00 Mark talks with musician and singer songwriter Fritz Hutchison about his debut solo album, “Wide Wild Acres,” produced by Fritz Hutchison and Joel Nanos, and recorded and mixed in Kansas City by Joel Nanos at Element Recording Studio. Multi-instrumentalist Fritz Hutchison is a life long resident of Kansas City. Since 2008 he’s been part of multiple bands playing drums with: She’s a Keeper, Freight Train Rabbit Killer, and Grand Marquis. On guitar he’s played with: J. Ashley Miller, Lauren Krum, Miki P, and Calvin Arsenia. A decade of lending an ear and a hand to other music makers has left Fritz poised to launch his own solo career as a singer-songwriter. His new album is being released through Center Cut Records.
At 11:30 Lawrence based musician Colin Halliburton joins us to talk about the new album, “GOOD / GRIEF” from his band The Roseline, formed in 2005. The band’s 6th release includes songs inspired by the death of Halliburton’s best friend (and keyboardist in The Roseline), as well as the loss of his mother-in-law to suicide. The Roseline include: Bradley McKellip on guitar, Colin Jones on bass, Heidi Gluck on keys & vocals, Jim Piller on drums, and Kris Losure on guitar, with guest appearances from: Mike Stover on lap steel, Dan Loftus on piano, and Chase Horseman on vocals.
