Bass Instincts, remastered

This week, we will be looking at a few notable and brilliant bass players, in a slightly updated version of our show from five years ago. We have a slightly longer pre-show run than usual, so music will be starting around 12:23 KI time, and it should be well worth listening in to.

See you in the Cavern,

158 A Stephen Sondheim Evening

We had a pleasingly large number of listeners for our somewhat out-of-the-ordinary show, by our usual run of stuff.  Hugh and Edison put this one together, and it went down very well.

157 Going Dutch

Our look at Prog Rock in the Netherlands in the seventies turned out to be very popular, and deservedly so, as Hugh’s friend Martin Lewis put a great show together for us.  24 listeners at one point, and over 20 for the whole show.

Focus were covered in the preshow, to give other bands more time in the main show.  The postshow was all German rock, from the 2005 collection Krautrock.

023R A History of Rush part 1 Remastered

The remastered version of the Rush show is the first of our early shows for which there still exists a comprehensive set of notes.  We tended to play it by ear to begin with.  The show also needed little updating from its earlier form, which was a bit of a blessing.

The History of Rush, pt. 1 (remastered)

On Sunday, we will re-run our History of Canadian Prog Rockers Rush, arguably a Supergroup in all but name. In our series of re-broadcasts of our early shows, this is one that has only very few changes in it to reflect what has happened since the original broadcast, so if you want to find out what RFD was like six years ago, here’s your chance!

156 – Singing Together – multi-part vocal harmony in rock and pop

A gratifyingly popular show, with more than 20 in the audience for a good part of the show. Hint taken, we will work on onother one.

I enjoyed putting this one together, as there are moments in my favourite songs when the harmony comes together with overwhelming effect.  It was nice to be able to share it.
