Interview to air Friday 3pm | Sat 11am

Did you know Iowa is home of the oldest mosque in America?

In response to a distrurbing rise in reports of Islamophobia, talk of Muslim travel bans and the new administration's emphasis on radical "Islamic" terrorism, Imam Taha Tawil, the leader of North America's oldest mosque, has scheduled a multifaith rally for this Sunday, March 26th at 3pm to encircle the Mother Mosque of America in Cedar Rapids.

Enjoy a conversation about the rally and related topics.

Guitar Legend Bill Kirchen at The Depot Brewery Thu Nov 3rd

Bill KirchenInterview airs Tue Nov 1st at 7am CT

Indy Week calls him "one of the best guitarists in the land". Vintage Guitar Magazine labels him "an American classic." British rocker Nick Lowe says, "He is one of the singular instrumental stylists of American roots music. To hear his sound once is to have it indelibly etched on your musical memory." The Man in Black, Johnny Cash, put it simply: "I think he's great."


Grammy-nominated Titan of the Telecaster Blll Kirchen, co-founder of the original Kirchen, on the far right, with Commander Cody“Americana” band, Commander Cody and his Lost Planet Airmen, will be in Fairfield for one show only at the Depot Brewery on Thursday, November 3rd at 8pm. His guitar licks propelled Commander Cody's hit “Hot Rod Lincoln” into the Top 10 back in 1072 and he's been blazing away ever since. His latest release "Transatlanticana" came out in August.


Kirchen is no stranger to Fairfield but this will be his first time playing the Depot Brewery, an artisan juke joint with a killer sound system and spacious dance floor perfectly suited to his twang-a-billy rock'n'roll sensibilities. Bill grew up in Michigan where he graduated same year, same class from Ann Arbor High School as one James Newell Osterberg, Jr., otherwise known as Iggy Pop. Kirchen relates: “I first saw Bob Dylan at my high school in Ann Arbor in ’63, then Newport Folk Festival in ’64 where he debuted ‘Mr. Tambourine Man.’ I went to Newport the next year and saw him ‘go electric’. I loved it. What I saw those two years at Newport, and all the wild music that came through Ann Arbor and Detroit pretty much ruined me for normal work.”

A founding father of Americana, Bill's fun-loving, devil may care, go for broke musicality is always entertaining. Tickets are $10 in advance and $12 day of show. Available now at the Depot Brewery or by credit card at 641 469-6959 during working hours.

The Depot Brewery | "Flood Louisiana with LOVE"
We are partnering with the Gulf Coast to 'Flood Louisiana with Love' from Iowa.

3 Ways to GIVE:

(1)The Depot Brewery cash or check Donations
Thursday - Sunday open @ 5:00
(2) Iowa State Bank Fairfield, Iowa account
"Flood Louisiana with LOVE"
(3) Direct to our Gulf Coast Partner

My family is connected with City Hope and I assure you 100% of your donations go directly to the people affected by the flood. If you have never been affected by a natural disaster, it's hard to imagine the devastation. It is like being in a war zone. The realization of the far-reaching impact is truly devastating financially and emotionally to businesses, school children, and the little businesses like news paper routes that no longer exist because the homes are no longer there.

This kind of disaster reaches far and wide for years. People begin to give up hope. They need the basics like drinkable water and it's also nice to have a few comfort foods to give back normalcy. Emotional strength comes from knowing that your country and fellow Americans come to the aide of its people. I always try to remember in every tragedy you can find a blessing. My blessing is that this unites us!!! We all need that right now! Louisiana has had more than its share of disasters. Let's unite to help them and receive a blessing in the process.

Please GIVE strength with your giving and Hope with your LOVE

The Depot Brewery Staff thanks and appreciates you Iowa for uniting with our efforts to help Flood Louisiana with LOVE
