A Change of Tune

On Saturdays at 10-11 p.m. (and rebroadcasts Fridays at 11 p.m.-midnight)

"The program that never plays the same exact song twice."

Each week, host Joni Deutsch links the past to the present with the best music ranging from emerging artists to classic hits, indie pop to blues rock, and everything in-between. She’ll give you enough music headlines, backstories, and #WVmusic discoveries to get you through your weekend. It’s time for A Change of Tune.

Since the show began almost two years ago, A Change of Tune has highlighted some of the best up-and-coming artists out of these West Virginia hills with podcast-y chats ranging from The Sea The Sea to Coyotes in Boxes, Qiet to Bud Carroll and beyond.

But those interviews have been a bit infrequent, and since West Virginia Day is coming up (not to mention A Change of Tune’s second birthday), we thought we’d do something special: 30 days, 30 brand new #WVmusic interviews that range from Morgantown alt-rockers and Parkersburg singer-songwriters to West Virginia music venues and regional artist management and beyond, all of which contribute to this state’s wild and wonderful music scene.

And today, we are chatting with recent Davis & Elkins College graduate Kaia Kater, a singer-songwriter who traveled from Quebec to West Virginia nearly four years ago to learn more about Appalachia's old-time music and culture. We sat down with Kaia in our Charleston studios to talk about her musical journey, her love of bluegrass and R&B, and her recent feature from Rolling Stone magazine.

Two Charleston-based artists. One indie folk'n collaboration. Singer-songwriters Sean Richardson and Kyle Meadows have come together for a new 4-song split EP, and they’ve even brought in seminal indie rock fellow Ken Stringfellow from The Posies along for the ride. We sat down with Sean and Kyle to talk about their new music, Ken Stringfellow’s return to the Mountain State and you know, cats.

If you're reading this right now, chances are you made it out to last Thursday's #WhyListen First Listen Music Party at The Grove @ Secret Sandwich Society. If you did, we have a new music playlist waiting for you.

After a four year break, seminal alt rock band Yeasayer is back with a dazzling new release titled Amen & Goodbye. We sat down with Yeasayer’s Anand Wilder to talk about the record, the farm that it was recorded on and how things have changed since the band came together almost ten years ago.

Ask anyone in Charleston about the #WVmusic scene, and you'll get responses ranging from venue reviews to summer fest suggestions to, of course, band recommendations. No matter what kind of response you get, we're sure it somehow leads back to Qiet, the Appalachian gypsy rock band that has been a fixture of the #WVmusic scene for quite some time.
