In Your Ear: Episode 7
This In Your Ear show features a Connecticut couple who found love and music among the majestic Tetons in Jackson Hole Wyoming and who won a duet contest on A Prairie Home Companion – Anne & Pete Sibley. For years Peter Ostroushko was a fixture on Prairie Home Companion including a two year stint as music director. He appeared on In Your Ear with exciting Russian-born guitarist Arkan Yushin on guitar. And he may be a California boy filtered through Florida but Robbin Thompson has called Richmond home for more than forty years. He sang lead for an early Bruce Springsteen band called Steel Mill, led his own very successful group and has soloed around the world.
In Your Ear offers a chance to discover new artists and appreciate the “in the moment” creativity, inspiration and soul of live music. Studio A is a “great room,” a haven for artists with intimate, friendly and informed audiences and peerless audio fidelity.
Host Tim Timberlake and In Your Ear studio president Carlos Chafin produce the programs, which feature three acts, reflecting the diversity and range of these special concerts. The eclectic selections cover many genres -- including bluegrass, jazz, blues, old time, Celtic, gospel and singer-songwriters of many styles. Artists range from superior local and regional talents, to premier acts from all over the country.
