Interview with Adam Franklin of Swervedriver - by Heather Lane

program: 
The Songcircle
program date: 
Fri, 03/06/2015

Heather says:

As a devotee of the music of Adam Franklin since my early 20s, I was thrilled to have an opportunity to interview him upon the release of Swervedriver's new album, I Wasn't Born To Lose You, their first in over 17 years. This interview also marks my return to radio after a protracted bout of illness with Lyme disease and electrohypersensitivity, combined with a complete lack of diagnosis, which left me to languish for most of a decade.

As a musician myself, I relate to Adam's creative process and share influences. My conversational interview style is a result of my excitement to speak with my favorite musician, and also due to my place on the autistic spectrum. My enthusiasm and filter-free approach were met by Adam with engaged patience and just the kind of detail I was hoping for. Please enjoy and thanks for listening.

Songcircle 3/4/11 Interview with John Wesley Harding/Wesley Stace

program: 
The Songcircle
program date: 
Thu, 03/10/2011

 Singer-songwriter John Wesley Harding, a.k.a. author Wesley Stace, stopped by to discuss his new novel, Charles Jessold, Considered as a Murderer, about an early-20th-century opera composer whose career is cut short by a scandalous murder-suicide. Wes performed the folk ballad "Little Musgrave," which figures prominently in the novel's plot. He also shared two new tunes from his forthcoming, made-in-Portland album.

Following the approx. 50 minute interview is a brief snippet of British folk legend Nic Jones' "The Flandyke Shore"; Wes paid tribute to Jones on the great 1999 album, Trad Arr Jones, on which he first performed "Little Musgrave".
