As a songwriter, Michael has four solo albums to his credit, each of which reflects different facets of his own interest in the reach of American music. www.michaeleck.com Michael is also a nationally recognized, widely published music critic and radio personality, as well as a visual artist focusing on portraits of American roots musicians. In addition, he is a member of the “funky American string band,” Ramblin Jug Stompers. www.jugstompers.com
In the early days of radio, families would gather around the fancy tabletop Philco Cathedral on Saturday nights and tune in favorites from the Mississippi Delta, the Great Smoky Mountains or the plains of Texas. The big shows -- like the Grand Ole Opry, the National Barn Dance and King Biscuit Time -- brought music into every home from coast-to-coast. Revisit the lost days of live radio with this broad selection of favorites and re-discovered relics from across the spectrum. In addition to a mixed-bag of hillbilly, gospel, string band and classics from the folk tradition, expect nuggets from the likes of the Delmore Brothers, Cousin Emmy and Hank Williams.
Amaal Yehia - 2013 Music Intern
A freshman at an area college, Amaal will be joining Tom and Michael for several performances this year. Be sure to check our calendar page and see which ones.
Prior to signing on with Lost Radio Rounders, Amaal apeared in several musical productions, and sang with her high school glee club. In addition to her vocal skills, Amaal brings to Lost Radio Rounders an outgoing personality, more social media skills than Tom & Michael put together (not much of an accomplishment, really), and a keen photographic eye.
For proof of that last statement, just check out the photo above this entry!
