So I went back to the earlist produced recordings I have, and I selected a range of songs that span from 1927 up to 1966. Next week we will spend some time with 1966 and 1967 only, because I have a lot more music beginning in '67. We start the show with Dock Boggs and Frank Sinatra. Then there is a bunch of blues by Robert Johnson, Tampa Red, Muddy Waters, Liitle Willie John- like that. Then we are off to folk with The Fleetwoods and The Kingston Trio, jazz with Lou Donaldson and Dave Brubeck, and r & b with Ray Charles and Fats Domino. As we progress into the sixties, folks like The Animals, Johnny Rivers, and The Yardbirds show up. Join me for a real trip through time. Cool Breeze
This is an exciting movie weekend, with award-worthy new releases plus, "steampunk cool" The Boxtrolls comes to the Orpheum. "A family event movie from Laika, the creators of Coraline and ParaNorman that introduces audiences to a new breed of quirky, mischievous creatures."
Starring the voice talents of Ben Kingsley, Elle Fanning, Toni Collette, Simon Pegg and more. This is a perfect family/adult Halloween-time film: "A delightfully weird tale told in stop-motion animation; full of Rube Goldberg contraptions; bizarre angles, strange-looking characters, and a kind of fearlessness, an ability to gaze at darkness head-on; took years of blood, sweat and clay to come to life; combines heart with a streak of Roald Dahl's perversity; one to delight macabre children and adults alike."
Birdman, which is already getting Best Picture buzz: "I'm jazzed by every daring, devastating, howlingly funny, how'd-they-do-that minute in Birdman. Powered by Michael Keaton's pinballing tour de force, Alejandro González Iñárritu's cinematic whirlwind is an exhilarating high. No true movie lover would dare miss it." - Peter Travers, Rolling Stone.Also out- The Tale of Princess Kaguya. "Legendary Studio Ghibli cofounder Isao Takahata (Grave of the Fireflies) revisits Japan's most famous folktale in this gorgeous, hand-drawn masterwork, decades in the making." "A thing of endless visual beauty that seems to partake in a kind of pictorial minimalism but finds staggering possibilities for beautiful variation; embodies the ineffable beauty of life on Earth that is one of the film's main themes."12:30 PM again Sunday mornings 11:30. "Laika is the new Pixar. Boxtrolls are the new minions."

Facebook and its IPO have been the center of social media attention over the past few weeks, but if you are a food lover BakeSpace.com is the spot to chat and exchange recipes and information with people who hang out in the kitchen. Babette Pepaj, the founder of BakeSpace joins us in the first half hour of the show. Babette's latest venture is Cookbook Cafe, an app for the iPad featuring "the first DIY cookbook builder, marketplace & reader." The app is built as a storefront where home cooks, non-profit organizations, food companies, and others can publish and market their cookbooks. Anyone who’s ever tried to get a cookbook published knows how difficult the process is. Big name chefs get most of the attention from publishers, so Cookbook Café's mission is to democratize the food publishing industry. Many of the cookbooks available through the app are free, though some authors charge a minimal amount for the download.
Farmer's friend, Sherri Brooks Vinton, will pay a return visit to Great Taste. She has some food writing tips to pass along in our second half hour, along with her special passion for local foods, canning, fermenting, freezing, and drying. She's finishing up two new books, Put ‘em Up! Fruit, and The Put ‘em Up! Answer Book, both arriving on store shelves next year. (Originally aired: 20120523)
The Headphone Masterpiece is a 2002 release by Cody Chesnutt, and I am playing selected cuts off of that two disc set. Selected because they are the few songs with no language problems. And, the rest of the show pays more attention to how the songs sound in my headphones than any other criteria. Hence we will careen wildly from folks like The Beatles, Andrew Bird, Boots Randolph and James Taylor, to folks like Pink Floyd, Lenny Kravitz, Yes, and Black Sabbath. Also, a cut from one of my records of the year in 2013, Mountain Bus. Get your gear in place so you can close your eyes and settle in.... The G Man

Kal Cahoone was raised in Colorado and studied piano as a young child. Her mother had a passion for folk music (bruce cochburn, judy collins, gordon lightfoot, leonard cohen, the fairport convention, tim buckley) and Kal never imagined that one day she would also be a fan.
After receiving a degree in Spanish she ended up in valparaiso chile, living on a hill (cerro alegre) in total solitude with nothing but a typewriter and a Beautiful view. Here she began writing songs, at age 26. Six months later she took a bus across the Andes, arriving in Buenos Aires. Within a few days she met composer Christian Basso and they began recording together and eventually married. Thier song “The Movement” can be heard in the film “Dot the I” starring Gael Garcia Bernal. She also took up accordion, which was easier to travel with than a piano. www.KalCahoone.com
