"I'm here, loving you, drowning in you
between photos and notebooks
between things and memories
that I can't understand.
I'm driving myself crazy.
Mixing up my foot and my face,
the night and the day.
There's nothing I can do."
~ Shakira, Estoy Aqui (I'm Here)

"I have this fear of falling

Even though I hear it calling

I'd rather stay right here

it's safer anyway"

- Fear of Falling, Jennifer Kravassi


If the singing, songwriting ladies this week on Lyrical Venus have any Fear of Falling, they Never Give Up, and they Don't Cry over a Wasted Word, they just Slowly Slowly look for The Easy Way to get Down The Mountain. Even if they Never Meant to let their Feelings Show, and it seems like they're Learning Too Slow, they Can't Stop until all the Loose Ends are tied up. Tune in Starting Now (well, Tuesday at 9AM) for some Easy Pearls of sweet music, and to hear the songs behind the titles.

This Saturday we'll have generations of A Fistful of Dallers' music. The first KRUU live feed from Café Paradiso, 8-10pm, (see James' recent post), will feature Adrien Daller singing accompanied by her brother Dain Daller on synthesized tracks, and by me, Doug Daller on piano.

Then my KRUU show, A Fistful of Daller's, 10-12pm, will feature the history of rock 'n' roll in the Daller family. My oldest brother, Bill Daller, will bring in his collection of the first 45 records in the Daller household. This, and AM radio in Detroit, is how my brothers and I got introduced to rock 'n' roll when it first began in the early 1950's.
