Jack White is sharing a previously unreleased White Stripes song called "City Lights."

The song was originally written for the band's 2005 album Get Behind Me Satan. But it was forgotten until White revisited the album for a 2015 Record Store Day vinyl reissue.

  Rick Simpson is taking the night off, and instead of Gumbo Variations, we bring you two sets from this year's Newport Folk Festival: The Violent Femmes followed by Ryan Adams and the Incredible String Dusters. Tune in tonight at 6  PM, only on Different Radio. 

The brother-sister duo Wild Belle found inspiration for its latest recording in its native city of Chicago, in its adopted homes in Los Angeles and Jamaica, and most of all in its members' romantic entanglements. The pair's island pop is a refreshing treat — especially the title track from Dreamland.

Set List

It's been a joy to hear the music of Andrew Bird shift and change. Bird's early music, from the late '90s, was steeped in hot jazz and blues music from the early days of the phonograph, then later shifted to new technologies using loop pedals to layer voice, whistling and violin. His lyrics often have a calculated quality, filled with abundant wordplay and observations.
