Trevor Hodgkins

HOST, DRY RIVER BLUES & JAZZ

Trevor Hodgkins has been involved in the performing arts for longer than this millennium has existed. He studied theatre at NMSU before moving to California and training at the legendary Groundlings Theatre in Hollywood, as well as CBS Comedy on the Lot in Studio City. He has been a member of several improvisation, sketch comedy, and theatre troupes in Southern California and is no stranger to busking or acting out until people paid him to stop. But what he wants to talk to you about now is Dry River Blues on Fridays (9pm - midnight) and Dry River Jazz on Saturdays (8pm - midnight). Join him as he explores the anthropology of America’s* greatest musical forms, stretching well beyond the "dry river" of traditional genre definitions to include folk, Americana, world, funk, zydeco, and more! (*Warning: not all music played will be American)

Be sure to follow Trevor on Twitter @DryRiverRadio for sneak peeks at playlists, insights, and all the glorious re-tweeting you've come to expect from that social media platform.

Nick Schnebelen calls in to the Dusty Banks to discuss his his new trio and tour as well as his past work in the internationally renowned band Trampled Under Foot. He'll even give some details on his upcoming album Crazy All By Myself slated for release in March 2019.

Listen in as they explore the music of Simon's Australian homeland while also highlighting artists he fell in love with during his time in the States. Plus, they will finally answer the question all our listeners have been dying to know: "Where is Simon Thompson?

Award winning playwright Neal Adelman joins Trevor Hodgkins on the dusty banks to discuss the new EP "Exceptionally Handsome" from his band ¡HONDO! ¡HONDO!

Listen in as they discuss the challenges of meshing guitar with keyboards, the similarities of songs to stage plays, and what an appropriate gift for a "Bandiversary" might be. (SPOILER ALERT: something made of paper...or a trophy)

On January 11, 2017, we lost an irreplaceable member of the family: Bob Burns. Join Trevor Hodgkins as he pays tribute to Bob by opening the doors once more to the greatest little jazz club in the world...Burnsland.

We'll hear from many of Bob's favorites during the show including The Four Freshmen, John Coltrane, Helen Sachs, and, of course, Stan Kenton.  But it all pales in comparison to simply hearing the great Bob Burns again.

Join Dry River Jazz host Trevor Hodgkins as he talks with guitarist/vocalist Jeffrey Scott Radaich about gypsy jazz, rock and roll, "referential integrity" and how it all came together to form the exciting  band The Black Market Trust. Featuring the music of Django Reinhardt, Gonzalo Bergara, and, of course, The Black Market Trust.
