Jo Gore and The Alternative

jogore2.gif

It's no surprise that Jo Gore's got a thing for soul and jazz. She grew up singing in the choir at a Columbus County Baptist Church, and soul music was a regular sound in her house. As an adult in Durham, she got together with a bunch of like-minded musicians and formed her band, Jo Gore and The Alternative. Host Frank Stasio is joined by Jo Gore, Bakru Hunsel, Steve Coon, Kip Perry, Bo Lankenau, and Weldon Kollock live in the studio to play some music from their upcoming album, “The Herstory of Josephine Gore, Return of the Articulate Kinsman Vol. 1”.

Longtime NPR correspondent Frank Stasio was named permanent host of The State of Things in June 2006. A native of Buffalo, Frank has been in radio since the age of 19. He began his public radio career at WOI in Ames, Iowa, where he was a magazine show anchor and the station's News Director.
