    FUV Live 16 Artist: The Brooklyn trio The Lone Bellow taped its first-ever radio interview at FUV with host Rita Houston, and it was a great chance to get a taste of their self-titled debut album.

    From 2012: Sara Watkins was only 8 when she began playing fiddle with her future Nickel Creek bandmates, but she has since stretched her wings into a solo career.

    Tuesday at 6:03 PM

    From 2012: We were introduced to Brit band Fanfarlo by the folk influences and electric instrumentation of its debut, 'Reservoir,' and they turned up the pop with an 80s-inspired vibe on the follow-up, 'Rooms Filled With Light.' During a visit to FUV, they performed a few of the new songs and spoke with host Alisa Ali, who said: 'You never know where a conversation is going to go with some people. I meant to stay on topic with Fanfarlo when they came in to talk about their album, but somehow we ended...

  7. From the FUV Vault: Adele

    Tue April 15, 2014 at 10:53 PM

    Mon April 14, 2014 at 10:27 PM

    From 2012: A.C. Newman deftly juggles his solo career with his band, The New Pornographers, but even he admitted that his album, 'Shut Down The Streets,' might be the release that most successfully bridges both worlds. It was also his most personal album to date, and between live performances at FUV, A.C. spoke with host Kara Manning about family, Woodstock, Neko Case and even honeybees.

    Fri April 11, 2014 at 4:03 PM

    From 2011: The New Zealand group The Naked and Famous chose their band name as a joke, feeling that they were anything but famous, yet certainly well-clothed. But soon the fame caught up, and during a U.S. tour the band joined The Alternate Side's Kara Manning in Studio A to talk about their album, 'Passive Me, Aggressive You.'
