Each year Spinning On Air features musicians who are exploring the possibilities of song. Some are pushing the envelope; others are offering deeply personal views of tradition; all are exuberantly following their individual muses. David Garland presents highlights from the sessions that took place in 2014, including some previously unaired performances by Patti Smith, and performances by Tree Laboratory, Cantar Alla Viola, M. Lamar, Bernice, The Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger, Viking Moses, Future Feminism, Bishi, Cian Nugent, Uri Caine, and others. Part 1 aired last week, Dec. 28, 2014.
