Live on the Red Telephone #7: Dominic Lavoie

For the seventh installment of Live on the Red Telephone, Dominic Lavoie of Dominic & The Lucid played solo at the 106.1 fm Portsmouth Community Radio studio. The program started at 10 am with our theme segment- this week featuring songs about Cowboys & Indians, including two cowboy songs from local Portland bands (Sugar Smallhouse and the Legend of the Wandering Siren Cactus by Samuel James; and The Legend of Scary Steve by Over a Cardboard Sea). The song selection was in anticipation of the upcoming Johnny Cash Birthday show at SPACE Gallery, but I'll get to that in another post. You can check out the full playlist here.

Dominic started at 11 am, and treated us to a selection of rare cuts, including the song he wrote for Empire's "Something Like Love" Valentine's show. He also tried to play a few cowboy-esque songs of his own, and I thought the rather epic "Against the Clocks of Man" came close to fitting the bill. Check out a sample track from the show here.
