Iron & Wine Perform on The Whole Wide World With Rita Houston
Friday, February 4 | 7 p.m.
New York, NY — Before their sold out concert at Radio City Music Hall last weekend, Iron & Wine visited WFUV’s Studio A for an exclusive session with Music Director Rita Houston. Iron & Wine’s new CD, Kiss Each Other Clean, is another step in the beautiful journey of Sam Beam’s poetic songs. In Studio A, he talked about his songwriting process, his love of Edie Brickell, his five daughters and his dogs. Hear the entire session, with a four-song acoustic performance tonight, February 4, at 7 p.m. on The Whole Wide World with Rita Houston and see a bit in this video performance of “Tree by the River” on the WFUV YouTube Channel at www.youtube.com/WFUVRADIO.
The Whole Wide World With Rita Houston airs on WFUV, 90.7 FM in New York City and at www.wfuv.org around the world.
Every Friday night from 7 – 10 p.m. EST, the genre-melding Whole Wide World showcases Rita Houston’s famously wide ranging musical tastes. Perhaps the only place on the New York radio dial where one can hear Nancy’s Sinatra’s “Bang Bang” and Manu Chao’s “Bongo Bong” on the same show, WWW mixes rock, pop, world, electronica, lounge, soul and dance tunes into a mellow Friday night soundtrack, punctuated with interviews and in-studios performances
