Jim Motavalli

by Jim Motavalli

GENRE Eclectic

Jim Motavalli –
A mix of environmental and author interviews with jazz, folk, blues, country (especially older forms), Americana, world and techno/ambient music. Live music is featured. I try not to repeat myself too much. Each show is a clean slate. Don’t expect the warhorses; expect the unexpected. I also don’t talk all that much, unless I have an interesting musical or author guest.
