TRADITIONS playlist for January 22, 2017

The Brother Brothers, identical twins Adam and David Moss, joined me in the studios of WFDU-FM to debut their new EP “Tugboats.”

In addition, I paid tribute to Maggie Roche, who passed away on January 20. We heard recordings from her work with her sisters, the Roches, as well as solo recordings. The Roches grew up in Glen Ridge, NJ, just a few miles from the studios of WFDU.

Also, new music from Spuyten Duyvil and Loretta Hagen among others.

(Tune in to WFDU-FM’s TRADITIONS every Sunday from 3pm to 6pm Eastern Time over WFDU-FM 89.1 in the NYC/Northern New Jersey area, or on the web at www.wfdu.fm or iHeartRadio.com.
