Have you heard our Sonic IDs on KBIA? They are short audio portraits of life in and around mid Missouri in the form of stories, anecdotes and sounds of the community.

Jazz meets Gamelan

May 18, 2012

This week we head to a Kansas City music laboratory where we find an atypical partnership and stay tuned till the end of the show where we bring you a Sonic ID right off Broadway in Columbia.

This week we hit the basketball court for a story about how, sometimes, the game can take on a deeper meaning. And stay tuned till the end of the show, where we have a new Sonic ID, this time from Speaker’s Circle.

If you hear the word "opera" and think of a stuffy art form with horned helmets and a large singing lady,well, think again. 

This week we talk about music. New music to be exact. And if you think new music means recently released albums, keep listening as we revisit a conversation I had with Patrick David Clark, who was a resident composer at the Mizzou New Music Festival this summer. And hang on till the end of the show for a Sonic ID from one of Columbia’s more memorable citizens.

All that jazz

Nov 4, 2011

As the saying goes, jazz was born in New Orleans, but it grew up in Kansas City. This week we’ll revisit Robert Altman’s “Kansas City.” And a new  musical audio postcard.
