This week--like last week--from 9:00 to 10:00 PM, I'll play more of my favorite Steely Dan songs.
Every Thursday from 10:00 to 10:30 PM, I play a set of comedy built on one or more themes. This week's theme is US Presidents--featuring National Lampoon and The Onion, with a little Daily Show, The Simpsons, and Saturday Night Live.
Howdy, y'all. This week on Crooked Sisters Radio Hour I'll be celebrating in song the ordinary working folks in this country, with new releases, old standards, and even some unreleased material on the subject.
Join me, your host Lauryn Shapter, in a tribute to the working man by the many wonderful women of Roots and Americana, Thursday, 10 to noon.
In this week's show, DJ Andy Bargerstock will take us on another journey through charming melodies and ethereal soundscapes. Snakefarm's "Songs from My Funeral" will be the featured CD of the evening. This duo consisting of Anna Domino and Michel Delory transform traditional folk songs into a downtempo, electro-acoustic sound that is "reminiscent of a collision among so-called acid-jazz, rave and film noire." (George Graham, WVIA-FM).
Yet, DJ Andy has more in store for you from his cavern of obscure music. For those longing for the psychedelic era, you will enjoy the 9-minute "Unfolding" track from the 2002 CD, "Inside the Acid Temple" by Liquid Sound Company. This CD is already selling at a premium on the used copy market. Their music is described as "a mindblowing mixture of psych, space rock, West Coast sounds, Middle Eastern scales, spaced lyrics and cosmic vibes." (www.psychedelic-music.de) Oh, yes! This does sound like Fringe Toast material.

The Synaptic Leap is a project started by Ginger Taylor aiming to create enabling systems to make open source, collaborative development straightforward for biomedical researchers. The project bills itself as "Open Biomedical Research", and this is the topic of this week's show.
This week on Open Views I'm joined by Dr. Matthew Todd, lecturer in organic chemistry at the University of Sydney in Australia. Dr. Todd's work in drug discovery for tropical diseases such as schistosomiasis is internationally recognized. He is also a proponent of the use of the Free/Open Source model for doing biomedical research in areas such as tropical diseases and biochemistry.
Dr. Matthew Todd is currently a research advisor at The Synaptic Leap, and we'll be talking about what Open Source in bio-medicine really means, how it is implemented, and what the impact of the Free/Open model is in biomedical research.
