(See link to play list at bottom). Join DJ Andy Bargerstock has he plays his favorite tracks discovered during the past 12 months. This "cream-of-the-crop" program is part 1 of a two-part sequence. This week's show features singer-songwriters and indie/alternative bands. Next week, the theme will be chill-out electronica and improvisational jam bands. Austin-based band, The Burned, produced the new 2010 Fringe Toast theme music, "Where Are We Now" and leads off the program. UK indie band, One Eskimo, and British singer-songwriter, Thea Gilmore, are the only artists with two tracks in this Best of FT lineup. Oops! Morcheeba, also joins the twin-spin list.
OK, if you look at LAST WEEK'S blog, you will see the bird's eye lowdown on THIS WEEK'S show! My bad. The G Man
Pinocchio is 70 years old - Walt Disney's version, anyway. (The original story was published as a serial in Italy beginning in 1881)
I must admit that as much as I admire the animation and the beautiful oil colors used in its creation, I've always found this movie almost impossible to sit through because of all the finger-wagging preachiness in the script.
And the Disney version is a libertine's fantasy compared to the original story, in which Pinocchio kills the cricket (not known as Jiminy then, obviously) and gets hanged as a thief in the end. The publisher had to plead with the author to write additional chapters in which Pinocchio is redeemed and eventually becomes a real boy.
Still, it's as good an opportunity as any to pull out all my puppet/dummy-themed material, which I will pass on to you listeners with no strings attached.
Tuesday, 10/5/10 8-10 PM Rebroadcast Friday midnight after P5K.
My life has gotten pretty busy lately, folks, and I'm going to need to take some time off during the month of October. Don't worry, though, I am not condemning you to a month of re-runs. My pal, Ken Mottet, has graciously stepped up and will be filling in for me while I'm away. Ken grew up in Fairfield, now lives in Chicago, and knows good traditional country, rockabilly, and western swing tunes about as well as anyone I know. He's got some great music lined up for you folks. You'll be in good hands. I know you have come to expect great country music and fun on every single Country Music Jamboree and this month will be no exception!
Ken will take good care of your Tuesday morning country music needs and I'll see you all when I get back. -Corey
Right on time
You are right on time
~ Right on Time, Ellis
Fairfield favorite Ellis is returning to Cafe Paradiso on Saturday October 9th celebrate the release of her brand new CD called Right On Time. I can't tell you how many times the chorus of that title track has been through my head since I first heard it. I can tell you that each time I hear Ellis' sweet voice and picture her smiling face singing it, I slow down, breathe a little easier, and feel a little better about my day. The new CD is "Ellis’ seventh full-length recording and it signals a shift towards greater ease and self-assurance with her art."
Join me Tuesday from 9-10am Central for your weekly dose of music by female singer-songwriters and get a chance to catch up with Ellis at 9:30am.
