A KDHX Live Performance Playlist for Larry Weir

As most readers of the KDHX Blog and listeners to 88.1 know, Larry Weir, Operations Manager at KDHX and host (along with Ed Becker) of Songwriters Showcase, passed away on January 13, 2010, at the age of 57.

We all miss him very much.

Larry had a wonderful radio voice: Warm, affable, yet calm and convincing. When he would talk on-air about a new release or an artist he loved, you believed him.

Some of my favorite live performances and artist interviews from the Magnolia Avenue Studios of KDHX feature that voice and reflect his keen ear for great songs. Larry helped to bring many touring artists to Saint Louis and introduced audiences around the country (even the world) to even more worthy performers, both national and homegrown. So I’m happy to share this playlist of a few recent in-studio performances at KDHX, all hosted by Larry, recorded in 2008 and 2009.

Special thanks to Radio Production Manager Andy Coco and all the volunteer engineers at KDHX for making these performances sound so good.
