Live & Direct With Nicole Atkins


Nicole Atkins dropped by the station on June 16, 2017 for a Live and Direct Session featuring songs from her newest album Goodnight Rhonda Lee! WYEP's Mike Sauter chatted with Nicole about the speed with which Goodnight Rhonda Lee was recorded, how Chris Isaak was involved in the writing process, and performing the previous weekend in the Bonnaroo Superjam with Jon Batiste and the Preservation Hall Jazz Band.

Since the session was taking place on the 45th anniversary of David Bowie's album The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars, Nicole and her band worked up a cover of Bowie's "Moonage Daydream" to close out their performance.

Songs performed:

1) Goodnight Rhonda Lee

2) A Little Crazy

3) Listen Up

4) Moonage Daydream
