Your schedule is wide open for lunch

There are two questions you constantly hear around town: Is all Houston radio really this bad? And What’s for lunch?

What’s the answer?

You can get an answer to both of these questions this Friday, January 10, 2014, on Houston’s only commercial free, listener sponsored radio station, KPFT 90.1 FM.

Houston singer and songwriter Keeton Coffman will be visiting KPFT at 12:00 p.m. for a lunch time interview to chat about his music with Roark Smith, host of Wide Open Spaces, and play some songs live in the KPFT studio. Keeton currently has a new EP out called “Stumble on Love,” an exploration of the little things in life and their larger than life consequences. If you haven’t discovered Keeton Coffman’s music, tomorrow will be the perfect opportunity to meet him on the airwaves for lunch. You can listen on the radio at 90.1 FM, or if you’re stuck at computer, you can listen online.

Wide Open Spaces, broadcasting from the Montrose area of Houston every Monday through Friday from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., is a celebration of all that’s right with music.

Into the great wide open

The daily radio program ranges from Mellow Music Mondays to Classic Rock Fridays. It includes a generous helping of interviews and live in-studio performances with local musicians and musicians traveling through town. Wide Open Spaces serves up Americana roots music to its listeners and showcases independent songwriters and bands who don’t quite fit the narrow “creative” constraints of commercial radio. Wide Open Spaces provides an unconditional platform and venue for local, regional, and national musicians who don’t want to compromise the integrity of their craft, but just want to create and perform music they believe in, outside the box of mainstream music. Wide Open Spaces, along with many other KPFT programs, prove Houston radio isn’t all bad. It can actually surpass your expectations. All you have to do is listen, and KPFT and musicians like Keeton Coffman will do the rest.

You can also catch Keeton Coffman in concert at the Dosey Doe Music Cafe in Conroe on January 11 and January 29 and you can see him perform for free at the House of Blues - Crossroads Stage Restaurant one or two Thursdays each month.
