Share Your Favorite Quarantine Album

The Music Director of KBCS, Iaan Hughes, asked friends, DJs, and local artists to share an album that gives them comfort during these uncertain times.

Here are some of the local quarantine picks of KBCS in Belleville, WA

The Lost Words: Spell Songs’ 

A folk album devoted to nature words that have been removed from the Oxford Junior Dictionary.

“I have played this many times already on Sunday’s Hornpipe and will continue to do so. I do this for the simple reason that it is an inspiration and generates a feeling of hope, of a deep connection through nature that brings us closer together.”—DJ John Gibaut

John Prine

Self-titled album from 1971

“Self isolating with these time tested songs, while I make me a poster of an old rodeo, gives me hope that we can survive this test of our time and look forward to the next time I can say hello in there on KBCS.” –DJ Mike Gibbins

Sixteen Tambourines

Debut album from The Three O’Clocks

“With Jet Fighter, Fall To The Ground and a sweet Bee Gees cover, this is a fun album to make a day feel better.” –DJ Chairman Moe

The River

Bruce Springsteen

“My album quarantine jam is Bruce Springsteen’s 1980 20-song The River for it’s length, songwriting prowess, soulfulness and mood diversity.” –Local artist, Paula Boggs
