190 Lost in 2021

Our now regular annual show celebrating those artists who left us in the past year.  A wide selection this year, which is both depressing and uplifting.  We also lost Grandbad from the cavern, and said goodby to him as well.

The show was compiled with input from Malaclypse, Hugh and Alan, and in the combination of our stashes we covered a wider variety than ever before.

058R A look back at 2016

A remastered show from six years ago featuring some not-so-well-known musicians who left us in that bad year of 2016 that saw David Bowie, Keith Emerson and Prince all depart.  Our chosen musicians were Bernie Worrell, Leon Russell, Keith Gemmell, Greg Lake and Rick Parfitt.  Dancing boots were donned and their careers celebrated with style.

189 The Sweet

A great show and an eye-opener for those who, like me, had never considered The Sweet outside of their Hit Single persona. There was quite a light hidden underneath that bushel.
The Big Hits were dealt with in the preshow, and the rest was solid gold.  And at least 27 listeners agreed, an extremely satisfying attendance for a holiday season show.

A lovely set confirming our commitment to bring you something different, out of the multiple stashes and overlapping preferences of our contributors. Robert Wyatt has a very rich catalog to draw from, covering a much wider range than almost anybody else. We did our best to hit the high points, and more than twenty of you agreed with us.

056R Difficult Times Remastered

A show from five years ago, and at a point when we were getting really pretty good at doing this.  Dialog tightened up and the show trimmed for length, cutting two Dave Brubeck tracks.  We had a lot of those already.    Our first broadcast of the show had 20 listeners, and we broke that with 21 this time – a nice milestone

Here’s the playlist, and a link to the lyrics for Rush’s Losing It, as requested earlier (click on the track title)

Preshow

Unsquare Dance is possibly the second most famous Dave Brubeck track after Take Five. Klaus Doldinger’s Timesignature is the sleeper here – it is in common time, but has the relevant title…

Postshow

Aretha’s version of Say A Little Prayer is the second best, after the Dionne Warwick original.

Unsquare Dance is possibly the second most famous Dave Brubeck track after Take Five.

Vix 9 is by Bela Fleck and the Wooten brothers, Victor on bass and Roy “Futureman” Wooten on drumitar, his own drum controller made in roughly the shape of a guitar.   Bela Fleck is playing an electric banjo and synth pedals, and the live video of them playing this on Youtube is very impressive to watch.
