St. Louis Public Radio's Erin Williams talks to Dan Conner and Valerie Kirchoff of the jump blues / retro swing band Miss Jubilee.  They tell Erin about how the band first started as a passionate hobby and has now turned into a successful full-time band.  We'll also hear "I Found A New Baby" and "Some of These Days" from their self-titled album.

Ted, Bella and Lily Ibur

Being part of a musical family is an experience not many people get to have.  Not so with the Ibur family.  Ted's been part of the St. Louis music scene for years as a drummer in numerous well-known groups.  His daughters Bella and Lily have also taken up the musical cause.  Nick Garcia talks to Ted about what experience has taught him about being the father of two very talented children and to Bella and Lily about how they work together.
