In The Groove features the best of what’s happening in the live music scene right now.  The music we play is centered around artists that make their living playing live, sometimes hundreds of days a year, and is characterized by quality musicianship and fascinating improvisation.   Sometimes labIn The Groove Oval Logoeled jamband music, it spans all genres including rock, blues, funk, bluegrass, world beat and jazz.

This show first aired on WMNF in 2007.  At that time, Jake Clemens & Thor shared the programming. After about a year, Jake moved to Ohio where he still spins.  Soon after Eric Hestbeck and Wayne Tagle got involved, volunteering to help answer phones and share their experiences.  Wayne and Thor have been sharing programming responsibilities for the past few years, and have definitely gotten into a groove.

We continue to air the best of the local, regional and national live music scene, and love to feature artists playing in the WMNF Live Music Studio.  Artists that we have had in the studio or talked to on the phone over the years include String Cheese Incident, Railroad Earth, Tea Leaf Green, Perpetual Groove, The Heavy Pets, Cope, Toubab Krewe, Bogus Pomp, Uncle John’s Band, Bela Fleck, and many more.
Please tune in on Tuesday nights and get turned on to something new to get you In The Groove…

Jim James “Eternally Even”
only 2 available
Share this:

Jim James’ new solo album contains some of his most psychedelic music, as well as his most directly topical lyrics, offering new ways for him to wield his otherworldly voice.

Eternally Even, logically enough, is more of a companion to James’ last solo LP than it is to My Morning Jacket’s stunning 2015 release The Waterfall, particularly in its deeper indulgence of James’ soul influences. But it takes those soul elements and submerges them in psychedelic textures, making for a head trip of an album. Regions was a strong record in its own right but felt less like a statement than a collection of songs—which, with material dating over the course of a few years, it sort of was. But Eternally Even sounds as if it was sequenced as one piece that requires front-to-back listening.

Thor Bendickson  inthegroove88.5@verizon.net

I got turned on to this scene in the early 90's as I was exploring all different kinds of music, mostly inspired by what I heard on to by WMNF. I have been an avid listener supporter of the station for over 25 years, and got my start by guest hosting on The Freak Show and The Sixties Show.
