112 Jon Hiseman

This show was very much one that I put together, as Jon Hiseman is a musician I have followed since I first became aware of him, and admired everthing he’s done.  I was quite surprised to learn that he is not well known, and neither is his most famous band, Colosseum – neither Mal nor Ed was familiar with them, nor were many of our audience.  Some were though (Mysty for a start) and others liked what we played.  Which is what we’re aiming for, really.

A trawl through the highlights of a very varied career, not in terms of succsss (which was never a primary driver) but in the styles of music and ways of expression.  Somewhat stellar in that respect.  I only hope we did him justice.

111 MOULa 9th Anniversary

A magnificent audience for this show, combining both RFD and MOULa fans and publicity from Minasunda and our companions in the program of events.

The ninth anniversary meant that we used a combination of the number 9, willow, leather, pottery and copper as our themes, along with some soundtrack music and music from cavern explorers.

There was no postshow, as we went straight into the Magic Light Show. The soundtrack for that, and the dance party that followed, are included below.

110 Jack Bruce in performance

For a change, a show consisting solely of live tracks, from the under-appreciated Jack Bruce.  All from his work with small groups of friends under his own leadership.  This one was put together by Hugh, who is a big fan of Jack Bruce, and chose a great selection of tracks.

108 Lost in 2018

Our first show of the year, and as is now traditional (as far as we can make it, being only a few years old ourselves) the show looked at artists and musicians who left us in 2018.

Notes, and artist suggestions, were contributed by Malaclypse and Hugh, as it was a very busy year, and we put in as many mentions as we could.

We had thirty listeners, which is very pleasing for the first show of the year – thanks to you all – bring a friend?

105 The Who, part 2

A slightly smaller audience than usual, on Armistice Day, which may have been one reason for it.  We covered the two albums that The Who produced after Keith Moons death, and the recent comeback album.  But most of the show was about solo work from the three, dominated, inevitably, by Pete Townshend.

A couple of late additions to the postshow were the Stephen Stills/Manassas version, the original version of How Far, to contrast it with the Roger Daltrey cover we had in the show, and a gratuitous play of Gordon Lightfoot’s Endless Wire right at the end of the postshow.

104 The Who, part 1

Our first show dedicated to The Who, an iconic English band that we have not featured before – I can’t think why.

We focussed on the Keith Moon years, when the founding members of the group were all together.  There is so much good music from this period of the group’s life that choosing a 2 hour set was pretty difficult.  I chose to emphasise the role that Lifehouse, the unrealised followup to Tommy, played in the success of the group, and played tracks released on later albums and singles in the order they would have appeared.  Researching the Lifehouse concept and the plot that was to be played out brought new light, for me, on the lyrics in the many ex-Lifehouse songs that were to feature so brilliantly in later albums and singles.
