WEXT

This radio station started on July 7, 2007, and has been funded by awesome listeners since then. Thank you!

Chris Kyle
Artist

Chris Kyle, who first came to us as part of Railbird - and more recently LIP TALK, has played with Sean Rowe, and many of the great Local 518s.  Plus, he's toured as part of The Duhks, and likely there is a lot more we are missing in our excitement to share his new single with you.  

"Falling in Circles" comes from a forthcoming record called "Air Jacket."  Chris, we cannot wait to hear more! And of course to play this on the radio!
