What does it mean to have success? That's the question NWA-based rapper Jasper Logan explores in his new album, "Success."

The Old 78s, and dance caller Steve Green, play for us and explain what will take place next weekend (November 10-12) at the Fine Times at Our House Weekend on Mount Sequoyah.

Last week, as many as 19 area folk and bluegrass musicians performed together as the ShindigMusic Hillberry Harvest Festival Orchestra at the annual music festival in Eureka Springs. Prior to that performance, seven of those musicians came to our studio to talk a little bit about the local music scene, and to perform several folk and bluegrass standards.

Sugar on the Floor is attracted to music from different decades and different centuries. They recently came by the Carver Center for Public Radio to sing for us.
