Well, due to an unfortunate glitch you heard the 1967 show last week. If things go swimmingly you will hear 1966 this week. The playlists are online at this site. The music in play is still from an era where they really built the sound for a buying public markey of record-spinners. Infectious is about the very least you can say about these songs. The G Man

Writes' Voices is pleased to once again welcome Steve Semken, founder of Ice Cube Press in North Liberty, Iowa, and author of "Soul External: Rediscovering the Great Blue Heron." This book is a new breed, and difficult to describe. The Ice Cube Press web site promises a "realm full of lore, hearsay, myth, and spirt." The late environmental book reviewer from Orion magazine, Peter Sauer, called it mythological natural history, and although apt, that is only a partial description. Semken mixes in memoir, philosophical meanderings, inspirational quotes, poetry, graphic design, experimental typography, and fine artworks from Andrew Driscoll. The result? Well, you'll have to see it for yourself.
Tune in this week for another journey into the world of books.
