Hey y'all. Hard to believe, but it's been just about a year to the day
-- July 19, 2007 -- that Crooked Sisters Radio Hour first went on the
air. There've been some ups and downs along the way and twists and
turns in that crooked road, but it's mostly just been a blast. How can
it not be, with the chance to celebrate my favorite women in roots,
Americana, country, bluegrass and beyond, starting with Mother Maybelle Carter and moving on through country music's history. Not just the one-namers like
Emmylou and Gillian and Loretta and Lucinda and Iris but the lesser
known though wonderfully talented folks I've had the good fortune to
discover, folks like Patti Casey, Red Molly, Angela Easterling, and far
too many to list here. So tune in and help me, your host Lauryn
Shapter, celebrate a Crooked First Birthday! And if you happen to be
listening locally, don't hesitate to stop in and say hi or give the
station a call!

IT'S CHOCOLATE PARADISE-YOU GOTTA TASTE IT
Meet Shawn Askinosie, the guy pioneering amazing chocolate from his direct farm purchases of the raw materials. He is way more than fair-trade, actually forming a collaboration between the farmer and the end product. It's amazing. We aren't kidding. Oh, and Kathy is making a chocolate pie to go along with our chocolate tasting hour. We'll post a pic and the recipe in the next blog.
Oh, daddy-o, it's Folkabillyrockblues, Corey Hickenbottom's hot rod red hot roots-a-billy roundup radio rodeo. This week he's featuring visiting Fairfield homey, Chicago transplantee, troubador Ken Mottet and his wife Mary, who'll be co-hosting and waxing eloquent about all things rockabilly, hillbilly and beyond.
The Mottets eat, drink, breathe, and celebrate all things illy and squiggly-iggly, and count themselves among the many ardent fans of Corey's premiere blend of country, rock, blues, be-bop and beyond. Ooby-dooby.
Ken is in a group called the Gin Palace Jesters and helms his own cable TV program in Chicago, as well as hosts and emcees all manner of rockin' regional shows.

So remember how last week I mentioned that Claire Wellin plays the narrator in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat on alternating performances? Well, I got lucky and got the other narrator (who is ALSO a talented songwriter) Lauren Davis, to come in for an interview this week! I can see why both of these gals got cast, they are both so good it's impossible to choose one or the other. In any case, it's too bad we don't have a piano in the broadcasting room, because this girl from Ohio can seriously tickle some ivories.
Tune in Tuesday at 9am to hear Lauren sing and talk about her songwriting and acting experiences.
Plus, as always, there will be some great music by female singer-songwriters, including a brand new one by Imogen Heap!
When The Beatles re-recorded "She Loves You" and "I Want to Hold Your Hand" in German, and both tracks went to the Top Ten in Germany, Motown prez Berry Gordy, Jr., took notice and later had a number of his artists re-record their hits in a variety of languages. (The coaching sessions must have been interesting.)
Thrill to some of your favorite Motown classics, including "Chi Mi Aiutera", Wie Shon das Ist" "Solamente Lei", and of course, "Piangono Glo Vomini" on this week's I.W.H., beginning at 10 PM, Monday 7/14/08
Sunday night beginning @ 11/10c
