The Signal

with Chris Kocher

A weekly entertainment show hosted by Chris Kocher, entertainment writer for the Press & Sun-Bulletin. Bringing you the best of Greater Binghamton's music and entertainment scene.


Great to catch up with singer-songwriter Zarni about her new EP, “Honest Company,” and what she’s been up to lately. (That includes getting married!)
We played all 6 songs from the EP among the interview segments:
Zarni – “New Love” (Honest Company)
Zarni – “Fireworks into Dust” (Honest Company)
Zarni – “Onward” (Honest Company)
Zarni – “My Light In You” (Honest Company)
Zarni – “You Are” (Honest Company)
Zarni – “Minute You’re Gone” (Honest Company)

From there, it was the roundup of events and some cool (mostly new) tunes.
Rachael Sage – “Skywriting” (Blue Roses)
Jenny Stockdale – “Little Lies” (Fingers Crossed)
Ray Wylie Hubbard – “Hey Mama My Time Ain’t Long” (The Ruffian’s Misfortune)
Spuyten Duyvil – “Keep Your Skillet Good and Greasy” (The Social Music Hour Vol. 1)
Sugarcane Jane – “Not Another Truck Song” (Dirt Road’s End)
Flagship Romance – “Gravedigger” (Fee Fie Foh Fum)
James Hill – “The Brightest Lights” (The Old Silo)
The Better Halves – “'Til the Cows Come Home” (All Over the Map)

Thanks to Dana Stewart and Bob Rynone from local band Voodoo Highway for bringing in some students who participate in the Mountainview Jam on the Binghamton U. campus. I was less than diligent about writing down what was played – sorry about that! I’ll go through archive recording of the show sometime and figure it out!
