Tiny Porch Takeover

The Tiny Porch concert series has been a way for Marfa Public Radio to spotlight the many amazing musicians in Far West Texas that make this place special. Ever since the shelter-in-place order began, the station has been collecting videos of people singing their favorite songs from their porches during social isolation.

On April 17, Marfa Public Radio got to broadcast some of these submissions on the air during our usual Friday Oldies show. The "Tiny Porch Takeover" featured musicians from Alpine to Valentine giving great performances of classic standbys and surprising deep cuts. These are the songs that inspire up our community, and they serve a welcome reminder that even when we're apart, music can still bring us together like nothing else.
