First up: Terry Draper, whose new album, Searching, Alan reviewed on January 21st, calling it the “first great album of 2016.” On February 16th, producer Chris Price will take listeners through every step along the way to the completion of Emitt Rhodes’ Rainbow Ends, the first album from the pop master in 43 years.

The album’s clever songwriting and three-dimensional arrangements, not to mention top-flight performances from Terry and guests such as Jamie Hoover and Ray Paul, and the usual vivid artwork created by Ted Jones, whose mark was indelibly left on the many Klaatu albums he illustrated, sit center stage. Terry talks about it all. You won’t want to miss a second.

chris priceemitt rhodes rainbows endProducer Chris Price takes listeners on a magical tour from the first time he met Emitt Rhodes through to the production and pending release of Emitt’s first album in 43 years, Rainbow Ends. This fantastic album brings the pop classicist back into the spotlight with terrific songs so good they could only have come from this master of the pop form. This chat brings new meaning to the idea of “in-depth,” the kind of interviews we’re known for. You’ll hear three songs from Rainbow Ends, and a bonus cover of a favorite Bee Gees song.

Set your alarm clocks for Tuesday, February 9th at 8 pm ET (5 pm PT) for Alan’s talk with Terry Draper, and Tuesday, February 16th at 8 pm ET (5 pm PT) for an in-depth chat with Chris Price, the producer of Emitt Rhodes’ forthcoming album, Rainbow Ends, being released by Omnivore Records on February 26th.
