Join us for the next KALW On-Air Folk Festival this Saturday December 9th 3 pm to 8 pm! It's five hours of continuous music performed live in the KALW studios, showcasing some of the Bay Area's top talent. The folk festival is hosted by JoAnn Mar, Kevin Vance, and Peter Thompson. Here's the line-up:3:00 pm Bruce Cockburn, one of Canada's most beloved singer-songwriters, will kick off the festival.
A double bill this Saturday on Folk Music and Beyond! Talented Canadian fiddler April Verch and her trio makes her debut on KALW. April is an award-winning, champion fiddler and step dancer—her music covers a lot of different styles—American roots, old-time, and traditional Canadian. And from the Bay Area, singer Chris Webster and guitarist Nina Gerber will stop by the KALW studios and share a few songs.
Wake the Dead play rock grooves, hot Irish reels, haunting airs, and beautiful melodies familiar to Deadheads everywhere. These worlds mesh seamlessly, true to the spirit of the Grateful Dead and the eternally hopeful Celts. Tune in Saturday to hear this year’s DAY OF THE DEAD live recording of the band from Berkeley’s Freight & Salvage, 3-5pm on Folk Music & Beyond. Hosted by Sandy Miranda.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
