Celebrating 21 years of music, ideas and community!
eTown is an exciting weekly radio show that’s been on the air from coast to coast for 21 years. Unlike any other program, eTown mixes live music from top performers in a wide variety of styles with conversation and information about our communities, our environment and common sense stewardship. Every eTown show is full of great music, and the musicians get a chance to open up during interviews with host, Nick Forster. The weekly presentation of the E-chievement Award highlights hometown heroes from around the country, each one taking small steps towards solving big problems. It all comes together with the grand finale with all musicians joining together in one last song.
eTown’s mission is to educate, entertain and inspire a diverse audience, through music and conversation, to create a socially responsible and environmentally sustainable world.

Website Aoife Joe KC 680x385This week, appropriately, we have an especially international eTown show, one in which the performances and conversations were all so strong that we’re presenting it in two parts. Irish-American singer-songwriter Aoife O’Donovan of the Grammy Award-winning band “I’m With Her” returns to eTown, sharing pieces from her latest collaboration with Jeremy Kittel, who co-produced and arranged Aoife’s first new studio recording in four years. With us for their first visit is the Latin American and North American, Grammy-nominated roots band Che Apalache, featuring band members from Argentina, Mexico, and North Carolina (home of band leader, Joe Troop). Plus, we’ll visit with KC Curberson-Alvarado. Her nonprofit effort began as a local festival to celebrate cultural diversity in central Tennessee, but when the infamous ICE raid happened in 2018, her group became more deeply involved, now providing legal assistance, language classes, and so much more.
