Love is in the air and on the airwaves this weekend! In celebration of Valentine’s Day, we’re exploring the music of 21st century troubadours.

In medieval times, troubadours were poets and musicians who wrote songs about chivalry and courtly love; they were basically the singer-songwriters of the Middle Ages. 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 songs about love, songs about heartbreak, and songs about online dating nightmares.

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