When you meet Americana singer/songwriter Dave Tucker, it doesn’t take long to see that he’s the salt of the earth. A carpenter by day, Dave is a hard-working man who tells it like it is and who believes whole-heartedly in the bartering system. On December 18, 2012, Dave will independently release his fourth studio album, In Kind, produced by recording artist and multi-platinum songwriter Wendy Waldman in Longhouse II, the studio he built for her.
The album features Dave Tucker (acoustic guitar, vocals), Phil Hurley (lead guitar), Tom Fillman (drums/percussion), and Ted Russell Kamp (upright and electric basses), and was engineered by Mike Sawitzke, mixed by Rob Hoffman (Quincy Jones, Christina Aguilera), and mastered by Sangwook “Sunny” Nam at the Mastering Lab. In Kind illustrates Dave’s all-encompassing, explorative nature by guiding the listener through traditional Americana, folk and roots, to pop rock with a little country swagger, then throws curveballs with a reggae beat and singer/songwriter ballad.
SYNOPSIS: Betty Tucker came of age in Belle Glade, Florida, infamous for its poverty and violence (e.g., see the Wikipedia entry and the 2006 documentary One Percent). Her childhood was one of debilitating poverty, borne of racism: exploitive migrant labor, multiple rapes and other abuse, chronic illness among her family and acquaintances ... the list is long and bitter. Betty survived not only by sheer hard work but also by nurturing a nascent belief that she deserved better. She moved to California, earned her college degree, and raised a family. Then, in 1997, she began a long and eventually successful search for the twin girls she had given up for adoption thirty years earlier.
AUTHOR BIO: A native of Troy, Alabama, Betty Tucker has a degree in behavioral science from the University of San Francisco. She also has a Clear Multiple Subject Teaching Credential. She worked for nineteen years with the U.S. Postal Service and for nineteen years with the San Francisco Unified School District. She has five children and four grandchildren and now lives in Richmond, California, and in Montgomery, Alabama. Thank you for your consideration.
Fear, insecurity, sexual abuse, want, neglect: This memoir will look beyond the description of these difficulties in the author's life to examine how they stifled her ability to shape her own life, how she acquired the tools she needed to take more control of her life, and what impact her choices, both intentional and unintentional, had on her life and those of her children.

Dave recaps an epic trip to NYC and Connecticut where he met among others Gerry in Piscataway, Lou in Hoboken, A Couple Quickies, and Tom in NJ, all of whom are scheduled to join Dave for the recap podcast. We'll cover a wild night in the Bronx ending on a Carlos Beltran Home Run, plus the other meetups in Stamford at Bobby V's, and a most interesting night in Manhattan's West Village. All that plus Dave reviews the best pizza in town, and a look at the Upper West Side of NYC. PLUS some other sports talk, mostly on the USA's chances to advance past group play in the World Cup and much more. In Hour 2, Kevin on the Cape joins Dave for "Random Questions" as we chat about the start of Summer in America and the upcoming MLB All Star Game.
Pitchforks, student debt and GunFAIL, Dave Dayen & Dave Waldman discuss the hollowing out of the middle class in a slow growth economy, a solution for the absurdly high college tuitiions and student loan burdens as an example of counterproductive public policy. Also David Waldman's #GunFAIL project--and the NYTimes departure from that beat.
Political satirist Culture of Truth adds the most ridiculous moment from the Sunday morning talk shows. Follow @kagrox @ddayen @jayackroyd @bobblespeak
