music meets movies – the 78 project

March 3, 2015 in Home by KrclAdmin MusicMeetsMovies_250x250

Join KRCL on Thursday, March 12 at Brewvies Cinema Pub for The 78 Project. The movie follows two filmmakers as they travel cross-country, armed with a vintage microphone, an authentic 1930s Presto direct-to-acetate disc recorder, and blank 78-rpm lacquer discs to capture performances by contemporary artists of public-domain songs in a single take, inspired by the “field recording” style of such ethnomusicologists as Alan Lomax. Along the way, the filmmakers also visit various music experts, who offer a history of the recording industry and glimpses into the vaults that contain America’s rarest records.
The 78 Project, Thursday, March 12 @ Brewvies
Tickets at 6pm. Movie at 7pm and 9pm

Just One Question: Schmutz of Recycling

February 28, 2015 in KRCL Music Blog by Lara Jones

Recycling is one of the “shoulds” in life. We should do it because it reduces waste going into the landfill, which helps the environment. The list of stuff to recycle is a long one, some items needs special handling — which prompted Just One Question from a listener named Joann. Do you have to wash food containers and packaging before throwing it in the recycling bin? To find an answer, KRCL’s Lara Jones invited Mitch Davis from Salt Lake City Sanitation to meet her at the end of her drive to talk about the schmutz factor of recycling food containers and wrappers.

Just One Question: Did Jane Manning Ever Question Her Place in Zion?

February 23, 2015 in KRCL Music Blog by Lara Jones

It’s black history month, and Lara Jones got a chance to talk with Dr. Ronald Coleman, a history professor at the University of Utah, about unknown legacies of black Utahns. He’s researched and written extensively on the subject. One story he shared with her was that of Jane Manning James, a free black woman who joined the LDS Church and made the trek here on foot. Just one question, doc – did she ever question her place in Zion?
