First impulse is to write this is a big weekend for movie fans, but it seems like we hear this almost every weekend. Let's put it this way- if you enjoy movies, if you're a fan of the film industry, a fan of film technology, interested in box office handicapping (what film will be seen the most this year?), and if the word Pixar peaks your attention, this is indeed a big weekend in southeast Iowa. All because the Pixar film Up opens nationwide today and will be showing in 3D in Ottumwa.
We took a tour of the Ottumwa 8 Theatre projector room with Manager Vickie Schleif and saw the brand new computerized digital projector that will be showing Up. We'll hear some of that experience today on the Filmosophers.
Co-hosts Chris Busch and Bruce Miller will also have reviews, previews and more on the Filmosophers- where we give our filmosophy on the movies and have filmosophical discussions.
Boy, have I ever got the tunes lined up for this week. I will be live in the studio a whoopin' and a hollorin' and playing the most unlikely set of songs. I have two great versions of The Days of Wine and Roses.... think about that as you are staring at the picture on the screen.....and be ready for some uptempo rock and roll...

Inspired by numerous requests to identify the background music played before the beginning of "The Good Die Young" concert at the Sondheim Center, DJ Andy Bargerstock has assembled some of this favorite, lesser-known Underground FM cuts from the Golden Era 1968-72.
This week's I.W.H. kicks off with a typically atypical post-Memorial Day salute, featuring John Wayne, The Blind Boys of Alabama, The Marx Brothers, The Decemberists and many others.
Also: Imagine Gershwin's Rhapsody in Blue arranged for piano and four voices. The Bobs bring their usual brilliance and irreverence to this classic, which will be played sometime around 8:30 PM.

So what does moonlight represent when it disappears?
Even if I can't see it is the light still here?
~ Eclipse, Ember Swift
Independent Canadian artist Ember Swift has been touring internationally since 1996, and has released 9 albums plus a DVD project in that time. In 2007 she finally realized a goal of traveling to China and has been splitting her time between Canada and China ever since. Her new project, Lentic, is a musical expression of her experiences in merging East and West - everything from the lyrics to the packaging to the instrumentation is a beautiful merging of languages and cultures, allowing the two to learn from, inform and celebrate each other.
Join me Tuesday from 9-10am for the Lyrical Venus Radio Hour, including songs from Ember's new project Lentic, plus an interview with Ember!
