Merry Christmas! I hope everyone had a very happy holiday, and are enjoying the days between Christmas and New Year’s! Today on the show we have part two of a two-part 2014 new music retrospective. I’m playing all of my favorite new songs that came out this year. I hope everyone has a great last few days of 2014 and a great start to 2015!! We’ll back next Saturday in the new year!
The Alt-Country Hour on BTR!
It’s the holiday season, and the holiday season means giving (and receiving) gifts! So for this week’s Sew & Tell I’ve tapped five of BTR’s culture DJs for gift ideas. You’ll find lists of their stellar suggestions on today’s playlist page, covering everyone from your globetrotting BFF to your bookworm uncle. Plus, I asked each DJ to weigh in on their personal favorite fashion find of 2014, and they shared their discoveries. You’ll hear from DJ Jen about her experience going shampoo-free, DJ Dane about his Ebay vintage watch obsession, DJ Jess about her favorite new travel-friendly label, DJ Meredith about Nike’s great new designs, and DJ Kory about an innovative young sportswear label in L.A. Plus, I’ve got a playlist of holiday-friendly indie tracks, including music from Tweedy, Pink Mountaintops, Sufjan Stevens, and more. So check your shopping list and get ready to add a few last-minute purchases – your gifts are sure to be a hit this holiday season, thanks to BTR’s savvy DJs!

I can barely believe it’s October!  Summer festivals are just a distant memory, school is in full swing, and open-toed shoes are just about behind us.  But we’re keeping up the warm summer vibes on the Saturday Show with a bunch of great rock and roll for you.  We’ve got girl rockers Ex-Hex, punk rockers Ausmuteants, and Brooklyn weirdos Dinosaur Feathers- all new on the show today!  And don’t forge to follow BTR on Facebook, Twitter, tumblr, Pinterest, Instagram, and SoundCloud!!
It’s Debt Week here on BTR, and while debt is often something to avoid, every now and then it can be a good thing: we can, for example, owe a debt of gratitude to someone who helped us out along the way. This week’s Sew & Tell guests will stand to collect a lot of gratitude in future years – Rosa Thurnher and Regina Weir are founders of Factory Girls, a new fashion incubator in downtown Atlanta that’s working to support the local industry and burgeoning new talent. From studio space to production connections, mentoring relationships to educational resources, Factory Girls offers Atlanta’s design community a wealth of resources that give independent designers the boost they need to get their labels off the ground and into stores. On today’s show, you’ll hear from Regina and Rosa about the evident needs that sparked their concept for Factory Girls, the specific ways in which they support and bolster Atlanta’s independent design community, how they’re able to serve as mentors to Factory Girls’ Designers in Residence, some of the highlights of Atlanta’s contemporary fashion scene, and more. Plus, a playlist with exciting new releases from Bonnie “Prince” Billy, Toronto’s The Rural Alberta Advantage, D.C. punk band Ex Hex, and pop/psych/funk duo Foxygen. So join us today as we learn what it takes to turn a city’s fashion industry into a central creative community, right here on BTR.
