21st Century Troubadours: Saturday, Aug. 13 | 9pm



by Maggie Molloy

Long before the days of singer-songwriters, troubadours were writing love songs for the hopeless romantics.

In medieval times, troubadours were poets and musicians who wrote songs about chivalry and courtly love. But of course, love and heartbreak are pretty timeless themes—and composers today are still writing love ballads for the modern romantic. On this Saturday’s episode, we’ll hear modern spins on the age-old love ballad. Songs about love, songs about heartbreak—and songs about online dating nightmares.

To listen, tune in to KING FM on Saturday, August 13 at 9pm PT.
