On Wednesday, May 30 from 8-10pm, you will hear the last of the trilogy of shows called "Lost in the '70s", which is a tribute to perhaps the most creative era of modern music. Part 3 begins with a 35-minute special mix of tunes by King Crimson and Renaissance. You will hear seldom heard music from King Crimson's 1970 LP, The Lizard, featuring Jon Anderson (remember last week's "Friends of Mr. Cairo"?), Robert Fripp, et al. You will also hear the soaring vocals of Annie Haslam from the British group, Renaissance, doing "Rajah Khan". This piece moves dramatically from Western Rock to Far Eastern Indian motifs. It is a haunting rememberance of "AUM". Then, the mix moves back into flavors of King Crimson's "I Talk to the Wind" and "Epitaph" to finish with..... something delightfully unexpected. If you know your music, it will tickle and tease and glide you into the Electro-acoustic Dream.
... and that's just the first 35 minutes. During this program, you will also hear fine tunes from Eric Burdon and the Animals, Quicksilver Messenger Service, Lothar and the Hand People, The Loading Zone, Pentangle, Spooky Tooth, Ten Years After, Wishbone Ash, Roy Buchanan and the Snake Stretchers and others. If you lived in the early to mid-1970s, you will remember the special magic of album-oriented college and non-profit stations like KRUU-FM. Now, in Fairfield, Iowa, the magic is alive again! Tell your friends to listen to this show. Turn the lights low. Sink into the softness of your bed and let the music flow. --- Host, Andy Bargerstock on FRINGE TOAST
