What Happened To Rodrigo Y Gabriela?

If your Friday morning at 11 am feels a bit like a recent Thursday morning at 11 am, we must extend our sincerest apologies. Our guests, Rodrigo Sanchez and Gabriela Quintero of Rodrigo y Gabriela, were sitting snug in a Washington, D.C. studio ready to talk with host Tom Ashbrook, when a studio connectivity issue beyond their or our control laid all of our best made plans for naught.

The sad news is, Rodrigo y Gabriela will not be joining us today on this sunny, summer Friday of August 1, 2014. The good news is that we’re working to reschedule that conversation for a later date. We’re just as sad as you are — and as sad as we were last week when similarly uncontrollable network issues made the studio-to-studio hook up impossible for our planned conversation with Nickel Creek — but we’re excited to move forward and find a time when BOTH artists can join us again.

Plus, it’s Friday and it’s summer. Enjoy that while you still can!

The new movie “Whiplash”. The thin line between obsession and abuse on the road to greatness. In music, the arts…sports.
