For episode 82 on Sunday I prepared 4 different bands. The first one is going to be a brand new South Korean boygroup with 13 members called SEVENTEEN who debuted with their first mini-album "17 carat" in May after 2 successful reality TV shows. I have to mention that some of their members are currently only 17 years of age... After that I'll play some songs by LUNAFLY who are famous for their accoustic style of music. Then we'll have some songs by SUPER JUNIOR who were the first group in SK to start off with 13 members... To keep the diversity of the show up I am going to feature some of their Chinese songs. Last but not least I'll play a SK R'n'B girlgroup called EYE TO EYE (image)...
Among this weekend's new releases is the well reviewed documentary film on R&B singer Amy Winehouse. Amy is "a powerfully honest look at the twisted relationship between art and celebrity - and the lethal spiral of addiction." "Alternately thrilling and devastating, throwing you back and forth until the devastation takes over and you spend the last hour watching the most supernaturally gifted vocalist of her generation chase and find oblivion." - David Edelstein, N.Y. Magazine.
"I'll be back." We wish we could report Terminator Genisys was a satisfying reboot of Ar-nold's iconic character, but it's more of a "lurching retread that lacks the thematic depth, conceptual intelligence, or visual thrills that launched this once-mighty franchise." - RT
We'll talk about that, other new releases and what we've seen, on the Filmosophers, with Chris Busch & Bruce Miller, "where we give our filmosophy of the movies and have filmosophical discussions." Fridays, 12:30 PM again Sunday mornings 11:30. "They tried to make me go to rehab but I said, 'No, no, no." - Amy
Hour one of the show contains the full album by Pageant entitled Royal Blue. Saw this band live in Des Moines and was impressed. After purchasing and listening to the full album I found their prowess in the studio only enhanced the experience. Then I have an update on music released recently by a host of interesting bands like Eternal Tapestry, The Young Sinclairs, Sloan, Real Estate, and the Parquet Courts. Mixing it up on an early morning sound companion. Almost as good as fireworks... Cool Breeze
Charles Lloyd w/ Gerald Clayton, Joe Sanders and Kendrick Scott
Charles Lloyd was born March 15, 1938 in Memphis, Tennessee. From an early age, he was immersed in that city's rich musical life and was exposed to jazz. He began playing the saxophone at the age of 9. Pianist Phineas Newborn became his mentor, and took him to Irvin Reason for lessons. Lloyd worked in Phineas Sr.’s band, and from the age of 12 worked as sideman in the blues bands of B.B. King, Howlin’ Wolf, Johnnie Ace, Bobbie “Blue” Bland, and others. His closest friend in high-school was trumpeter, Booker Little.
In the intervening sixty years, Lloyd has become a true giant of the jazz world, playing with Billy Higgins, Don Cherry, Bobby Hutcherson, Chico Hamilton, Keith Jarrett, Jack DeJohnette and many more.

Third in a series of shows about hit songs off the radio in the sixties. KIOA 940 AM in Des Moines had a weekly and yearly count about 45 RPM records. This show recreates most of those songs- I got 38 of the 49 into the mix. The Beatles have three songs, The Rascals and Simon & Garfunkel have two apiece, and the whole thing sounds like the hit parade from a time gone by. Hope you enjoy the show. The G Man

The first hour offers choice tracks from Richard Thompson's new CD, from jazz singer Melody Gardot singing roots spirituals, and Broken Bells.
