It’s Happiness Week here on BTR, and there’s almost nothing in fashion that makes me happier than a beautiful linen garment. Today’s guest, Zach Weinstein, is the Sales Director for CP Shades and son of the label’s founder David Weinstein. CP Shades is a collection of beautifully-crafted classic styles made in California from natural fibers like linen, silk, and cotton. It’s one of my personal favorites, and I don’t get much happier than when I can slip into a CP Shades piece! So join us today as we hear the engaging origin story of this unique brand from Zach Weinstein, who will also tell us a bit about the challenges of working with linen fabric, their unique production facilities in San Francisco, and the delicate balance they strike between offering their customer the familiar and the fresh. Plus, a playlist filled with some of my favorite tracks from 2015 (and the end of 2014), including songs from Emmy The Great, Copeland, and Mike Pace and the Child Actors. So join us for an hour of pure indie fashion + music bliss, with Sew & Tell on BreakThru Radio!
June is almost here! Welcome to this new edition of the Green Mountain Bluegrass Hour. Skiing in Vermont didn’t quite make it into June as planned, though it really did look like we’d make it all the way to July just a month ago! Anyway, I’m looking forward to playing from all new albums for the show. Big Country Bluegrass put out Country Livin’ back in March. Della Mae released their self-titled album on May 12th. And we got two sneak peaks into upcoming releases: The Steeldrivers’s The Muscle Shoals Recordings will be on the shelves June 16th and Dale Ann Bradley will release Pocket Full of Keys on June 9th. They’re all out on tour right now, scroll down through the playlist for details! And as always, don’t forget to check out BTR on Facebook, Twitter, tumblr, Instagram, SoundCloud, and Pinterest!
