One of the great anchors in my entire life (aside from my mother and my wife) has been my friend and fellow Fairfielder Richard Hadley. We met as very young men who bonded over Star Trek, comic books and Monty Python.

And we have remained friends throughout the decades (we stood up in each other's weddings). And now he's been a guest on The Feed Store.

And a darn fine guest at that. Stories about the Bargain Box. Stories about Turk Balderson. He was a real pip. Richard, my sincerest thanks for the friendship.

The Scenic Incidents

RRThe Scenic released an album called Incident At Cima back in 1995, and you will hear the entire disc in the first half of the show. It is all instrumental, and I love the gentle nature of the whole thing. More like post rock, certainly, and a little reminiscent of a movie soundtrack. I have some other goodies like a Jimi Hendrix tune off of a CD I got in the back of a book. I also have some early sixties jazz from Jack McDuff, and a song from the brand new Six Organs of Admittance release Burning The Threshold. Thats just for starters, hear the whole shootin' match Monday morning starting at 4 AM. Cool Breeze

The Filmosophers movie talk

Blade Runner 2049 opens this weekend. The 1982 original is one of our all-time Blade Runner 2049 posterfaves and this (very) long awaited sequel has been our most anticipated film all year long. We saw it and look forward to giving our re-view of this film instead of the usual pre-view. We agree with most of the excellent reviews: "Super-stylish and deeply human - even with androids and holograms around - the spectacular follow-up takes the detective story of the first film and turns it into a grand mythology of identity, memory, creation and revolution." "Immersing you in a complete wow, Blade Runner 2049 is the thinking person's sci-fi event of the year." "It takes on the themes and universe set forth in the original, then builds on them, and manages to live up to the massive expectations that greet it. This is no replicant, it's the real deal." We have already gone on record predicting Roger Deakins will win the Oscar for "Best Cinematography" (after 13 previous nominations w/o a win.) But did we enjoy this film achievement as much as admire it? There's much to discuss about Blade Runner 2049.

We'll also preview other new releases, including The Florida Project. "Director Sean Baker crafts one of the best and toughest films about childhood ever and gives a never-better Willem Dafoe a clear shot at an Oscar." - Peter Travers, Rolling Stone. Also, the "charming" documentary Faces, Places (Visages, Villages). "Sheer perfection. French New Wave veteran Agnes Varda and the young photographer JR leap fearlessly into the art of making art in the year's best and most beguiling doc." "Agnès Varda and JR's film develops into something approaching a manifesto for the possibility of shared happiness."

Also, what we've seen (Score: A Film Music Documentary) and more on the Filmosophers, with Chris Busch & Bruce Miller, "where we give our filmosophy of the movies and have filmosophical discussions."

Sometimes to love someone, you got to be a stranger. - Deckard, Blade Runner 2049

It's Been A Tough Week, So....

G Man...let's all agree that we will relax and enjoy some space for three hours or so. At least, that is my goal: Roll in, have a good time, and then get some business done later. To that end, two hours of rock and roll by Billy Joel, The Seeds, Detective, Cheap Trick, and other heavy hitters. Then an hour of IN ROOT ensues, where we examine other genres that helped form rock music. We will hear from Michael Bloomfield, Bukka White, Hound Dog Taylor, and some bluegrass bands. Toe-tappin' free wheelin' groove movin' tunes by The G Man.

Tom Petty

Tom Petty

Tom Petty - 1950-2017

 With the passing of what can only be described as a legendary rocker, Tom Petty has left us with decades of music to play. As the saying goes, "something for everyone."

Shockingly, only one of Tom's albums made it to number one, and even more weirdly, it was released just three years ago. I'll feature songs from that album ("Hypnotic Eye"), some lesser-known songs, along with some Traveling Willburys and live tracks.

If you cannot listen to Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers without tapping a foot or singing a long, you might not be getting the full experience of this signature voice and style.
