With themes of isolation, Kevin Morby's "Sundowner" fits this pandemic time. But the album was actually written in 2017, when Morby had just moved back to Kansas City, Kansas, from Los Angeles.
Being isolated away from the music industry and experiencing melancholy also influenced the new release. Composed in his backyard shed, Morby worked through Kansas weather without air conditioning or heat.
When I host Up To Date each morning at 9 a.m., my aim is to engage the community in conversations about the Kansas City area’s challenges, hopes and opportunities. I try to ask the questions that listeners want answered about the day’s most pressing issues and provide a place for residents to engage directly with newsmakers. My email is email@example.com.
Whether it’s something happening right now or something that happened 100 years ago, some stories don’t fit in the short few minutes of a newscast. As a podcast producer at KCUR, I help investigate questions and local curiosities in a way that brings listeners along for adventures with plot twists and thought-provoking ideas. Sometimes there isn’t an easy answer in the end – but my hope is that we all leave with a greater understanding of the city we live in.
