Over the Rhine Celebrates Love on WVXU

Exclusive live concert special to air this Sunday

Over the RhineLinford and Karin, sittin' in a tree …

Linford Detweiler and Karin Bergquist of long-running, internationally acclaimed group Over the Rhine know a thing or two about love. Not only do they churn out lovely love songs on a regular basis, but they've also been a married couple for much of the time they've been performing together. The couple celebrated its 15th wedding anniversary recently and they've been together in Over the Rhine since 1989.

This Sunday, you can hear what a beautiful relationship sounds like (not that they haven't hit bumps in the road) when WVXU (91.7 FM) and Oxford's WMUB (88.5 FM) broadcasts an exclusive concert special at 8 p.m.

For the show, the couple performs songs from throughout their career and, according to the press release, talks with WVXU's Brian O'Donnell and relays "stories and reflections on their relationship and their adventurous life together." (Alas, fans won't be able to pop in and pray for a seat in the studio, because it won't be live. The event was recorded last month at Cincinnati Public Radio's Corbett Studio.)

If you're outside of the area or like listening to music on your computer, you can listen online here.

I'd bet the farm (not the one the couple lives in just outside of town, but my own imaginary one) that they'll play this gem from last year's magical full-length, The Long Surrender, called "Infamous Love Song." Check out the gorgeous, Billie Holiday-reminiscent track performed live at Coney Island in 2010:
