About one quarter of the way through Joe Hertler and the Rainbow Seekers’ set, my friend turned to me and remarked, “Imagine having this as your teacher.” She didn’t mean it derisively, but it made me laugh anyway. We had both just seen firsthand the stark difference between Joe Hertler as a teacher and Joe Hertler as the charismatic, energetic frontman of a soulful roots-rock band. One dressed in a gingham button-up and spoke with soft measured statements; the other danced wildly onstage, adorned in floral shirt and hat, and said things like “music is about human f*cking beings!” to a teeming crowd of young adults. The first one is the Joe Hertler I interviewed. He had parent-teacher conferences for part of the night. Then he came back to The Loft, cut loose – and gave what I believed to be the best performance of his career.
Tonight on Exposure, regular host Abbie Newton returns from a two and a half week trip to Peru where she ran 150 miles with the non-profit group Impossible2Possible. We feature a conversation with her and Producer Gabriela Saldivia about life now looking back on the trip. We also hear from professor Alan Arbogast about Geography Awareness Week and an event tomorrow night at the Wharton Center’s Pasant Theatre. Lastly, Impact reporter Quin Hoffman explores the popularity of soccer in the United States.
Dessa and her band crammed into our studio for a quick session. We’re spinning a few tracks in regular rotation (including this one) from her latest album Parts of Speech, but this full band version adds some lovely flavor. Thanks to the band for stopping in!
Angra – (Deus le Volt!) Spread Your Fire
Dio – The Man Who Would Be King
Ghost – If You Have Ghosts (Roky Erickson cover)
It’s 1977. You’re at a rock show, one person among 9,999 others. The house lights in the arena go down. The crowd goes wild. A kickdrum booms rhythmically out of the blackness. The stage lights shine brightly at an instant. A flamboyant figure hustles to the microphone. It’s Robert Plant. It’s Freddie Mercury. It’s Steven Tyler.* The 3 hours that follow will be one of the best memories of your life.
The world cup is this summer, Detroit City FC is breaking attendance records, and the Red Cedar Rowdies are making more noise than ever. Is soccer in North America on the rise? Quin Hoffman reports. Read More…
