Sarah SamplePieta BrownYou were on the run from your parents and the law
I didn't see it then but I was your get-away car
I didn't have a bottle yet you drank down all my love
But to you the edge was never close enough
~ Never Close Enough, Sarah Sample

Just a few minutes listening to Sarah Sample's latest album Never Close Enough and it's easy to see why she was the winner of the 2007 Rocky Mountain Folks Showcase. Intelligent writing, memorable melodies and a super sweet voice come together for something worth listening to over and over again.

If that weren't enough, Pieta Brown & Bo Ramsey will be playing Cafe Paradiso this Saturday October 11. Pieta will be calling in to discuss her new EP Flight Time!

Join me Tuesday from 9-10am for interviews with Pieta & Sarah!

Poet Dorianne Laux wraps it up with host Rustin Larson in a delicious 6 minute conclusion to her interview.

Then after a brief musical interlude, poet Rustin Larson reads his lyrical narrative essay "Elegy" which first appeared in the journal The MacGuffin in 1997. Ah, literary history. Can y'all smell it in the toaster? Whiff the sesame seed, the poppy seed, the garlic and onion bagels of beauty and truth.
