Demos to Hits

We're used to hearing our favorite records, but have you ever thought about the steps that usually lead to the making of that record? That's the idea for the show today -- the demo recordings that lead to that final recording. If there's a Nashville slant, it's deliberate, because it's in the Music City where the demo system most flourishes.

Eric Whitacre Vol. 2

We celebrate BYU's second collection of choral works by Eric Whitacre, "Eric Whitacre Vol. 2," recorded at BYU in 2008. Choral director Ronald Staheli of the BYU Singers discovered Eric Whitacre while he was still in Nevada, and prior to graduate school. Dr. Staheli's subsequent first album of Whitacre's choral works sold well, and drew early attention to his "sound." We follow Mr. Whitacre to London, where he now lives with his famly. BYU can be proud to be among the earliest fans, earliest adopters of the brilliant choral music of Eric Whitacre.

1965 vs 2016

"You Were On My Mind by We Five was the #3 song of 1965, but what about the album cuts? A 1965 memory triggers a posthumous tribute for country legend Merle Haggard. And then a 2016 look at the Lumineers sophomore album "Cleaopatra," and finally, thoughtful looks at Australian indie success Gotye fellow Australian, the brilliant, tragic ArtPop creator Szimon, and the heartwarming efforts of family and friends, culminating in the EMI release of Szimon's album "Tigersapp."
