November 3, 2013 – KC Cafe Radio’s first visit to the Folk Alliance Region Midwest Conference (FARM) in St. Louis, Missouri was indeed a rewarding experience. In three days, we provided nearly 40 hours of live conference coverage, including 6 hours of live performances from 26 musicians that were featured in our Showcase room.
We also had the opportunity to reunite with several friends at FARM, some who became KC Cafe Radio Performing Artists back when the station started in 2008. We also made some new friends, whose music is either currently playing, or soon will be added to our music rotation.
It was an exhaustive, sometimes mind-numbing three days. Nonetheless, once we packed up the equipment and headed back home, we all agreed it was perhaps one of our most rewarding experiences so far. We hope you enjoyed it as well.
Here, we present all the conversations that were recorded from our daytime coverage at the conference. Elsewhere you will find recordings from our live late-night showcase broadcasts. If you missed any our live coverage, you can enjoy it all right here.
And, if listening makes you long for a rewarding experience like this in-person, we encourage you to join us this winter for the Folk Alliance International Conference, that will be held for the first time in our own back yard – Kansas City, Missouri.
