Vashti Bunyan and Gareth Dickson

The songs of Vashti Bunyan have a gentle, quiet sound, but they tell tales of strength, resilience, and insight. Vashti joins host David Garland in the studio once again, this time to play and talk about songs she wrote in 1964 and 2009, and from a few points in between. Accompanying Vashti is Scottish guitarist Gareth Dickson, who then plays us a couple of his own songs, which are mysterious, rhythmic, and lovely.

Hi, this is a question. I turned on the radio at night in the last week, I believe, and heard the most marvelous music. Obviously middle eastern, but was it arabic, sephardic jewish, or what? Turned out both, and I think Greek orthodox. Can't recall if it was 93,9 or WKXR, but it was broadcast live from The Rose Theatre, I believe, some part of Lincoln Center. I am dying to know the name of the show, where to find it and listen to it on your site and watch, if it's on video. Being a tech twit, if you're able to contact and inform me, please be specific. Thanks! April Wolff (212) 580-7096

Gareth sounds amazing. And I actually have the radio on IN ADDITION to my web radio, and there is a slight delay, which sounds like an echo....all the more dreamy than it already is.
