Chattanooga, TN – The Free Lunch this Tuesday features the renowned guitarist, Ry Cooder and Cuban legend Manuel Galban, with their collaboration of catchy, instrumental surf music.

It's been 15 years since Ry Cooder released an album that featured him as the artist and producer, but it was worth the wait. Mambo Sinuendo pairs Cooder with Cuban guitar sensation, Manuel Galban.

Together they have created a masterpiece of sunny rhythms in the style of the Ventures with the aid of Galban's "twangy guitar."

Chattanooga, TN – Thanks to stations like WUTC many albums that would often go unheard on commercial radio are getting a second chance.

'Failer,' a new album by 24-year-old, alternative-country diva Kathleen Edwards is a perfect example. On Thursday, Jan. 30, WUTC will present the Failer in its entirety as a part of the weekly Free Lunch from noon to 1p.m.

Edwards has been compared to artists like Lucinda Williams, but admits to Rolling Stone magazine that her real influence is a different artist.
