AfterFM - Brother Louie
Brother Louie show archive and podcasts on afterfm.com. I started DJ’ing at KGNU way back in 1997, and since then I’ve had the opportunity to participate in a number of shows including Restless Mornings, Sleepless Nights, Highway 322 and Morning Sound Alternative, all with my on-air partner and good friend, Major Lance. Right now we’re focused on the Blues Legacy and Roots and Branches shows - and it’s been a blast. Major Lance and I have always taken an approach to whatever show we’re doing that involves pushing the boundaries of musical categorization while maintaining respect and reverence for the genre. In this way we hope to expose new and existing listeners to cool new music from under-represented artists - and maybe some obscure stuff from people you thought you knew!
During the time on-air I’ve been lucky enough to interview Kevin Russell of Shinyribs and The Gourds in conjunction with the Roots& Branches show, Peter Blackstock, former editor of No Depression magazine (a publication I wrote for back in the day) in conjunction with the Highway 322 show, and supplied the interview questions for my buddy Major Lance to interview Paul Kelly, the Australian recording artist.
For those of you that attended the KGNU/Colorado Friends of Cajun & Zydeco Mardi Gras event in March, I was the guy pretending to be an MC. Hope to do it again next year!
Thanks for taking the time to check this out!
