Tonight is an exciting show for us. We invited Arvid Smith, songsmith, guitarist, and multi-instrumentalist to steer the wheel of tonight’s Avant Radio. His theme was traditional instruments used in non-traditional ways. It’s easily the biggest stretch we’ve made with the show – a show of textures and experimentation, we ask the listener to stretch their ears and open their minds with this show.
