Guest Co-Host: Judah & The Lion - Episode #361

posted: October 14th, 2016

The roots of this episode harken back to UTR's former parent organization, ReFrame Media.  I had the privilege of hosting Judah & The Lion for a private lunch-time concert and interview back in May 2014.  Things started to explode for the band that summer, and only a few months after playing a lunch concert for 3 dozen people, they were playing on Latenight with David Letterman!  Part of the interview we did that day was to put them …Read More »

Special Interview Guest Mike Farris - Episode 344

posted: April 22nd, 2016

This is a special week for me, because without Mike Farris there probably wouldn't be Under The Radar.  In late 2007, I stumbled upon the Memphis-blues and soulful roots artist Mike Farris.  I happened to be putting together a pretty important concert at the time, and I was so won over by Mike's music that we rented out a blues bar in downtown Nashville and booked Mike for the event.  We were launching the new …Read More »

Special Interview Guest Judah & The Lion - Episode #292

posted: February 19th, 2016

In May 2014, I had the privilege of hosting Judah & The Lion in the UTR Studios for a private concert and exclusive interview.  Our special feature episode released in September of that same year, just as their first full length project Kids These Days was released.  Their popularity took off, including touring with Mat Kearney, Ben Rector, and playing on The Late Show with David Letterman.  I found Judah, Nate, and Brian completely down-to-earth and not shy …Read More »

Best Songs of 2014, pt.1 - Episode #301

posted: January 30th, 2015

If selecting the best albums of the year is not void of subjectivity, choosing the individual songs that stood out is even more personal and varied.  Even if critics agree on an artist or album, chances are they won't pick the same song when it comes to choosing favorites or stand-outs.  This is why we take 2 full weeks every year on UTR to highlight some of the many songs cited by our critics - …Read More »

Judah & The Lion Interview - Episode #292

posted: September 12th, 2014

I'm very excited to share the interview I did with Judah & The Lion on today's show.  They are on the launching pad poised to have their career take off.  Their latest album Kids These Days just released days ago, and it's one of the best releases I've heard in 2014!  This band has a unique trajectory, because they started as a full-on worship band, and have been developing more into a mainstream-friendly Americana outfit... so …Read More »

All Listener Requests - Episode #287

posted: August 15th, 2014

June was filled with "specialty shows" like Kelly's farewell and the Critics' picks.  July was all repeat episodes.  So we've collected a fair number of listener requests over the last 2-3 months, and it's always fun to dedicate a whole hour to the songs and artists suggested by our UTR family.  As it seems to happen regularly with these types of episodes, we are introduced to a fair number of artists that we weren't aware …Read More »
