In this nearly-all-vinyl presentation, horridus of devilsclub and I raid our respective record collections and present a meditation on the origins of music itself, aided by Thurl Ravenscroft and some of the other talent in from the Disney studios back in their heyday. But that’s not all! We get an exotica re-mix, and three-way jazz throw-down, some gems from archive.org, and a phone call from Uneasy Chairs where Pat plays along live to the records we’re playing! It’s a grab-bag of Mutated Goodness, this week on the program.
We were sad to have to reschedule Derek Johnson Love, who was supposed to play on the show this week, but with the insane weather lately, it was better that he wasn’t on the road. And, when things like that occur, it’s nice to be able throw together something like this, where the usual rules of our program go out the window.
Both Uneasy Chairs and devilsclub are becoming regular fixtures on the program, and for that I am thankful. Not only do they both really get the show, and enjoy what we do, but they add a nice texture and vibe to the program that really fits. They are both welcome on the show any time they are in town, and it is always a pleasure to work with them.
But, that’s not what we’re hear for this week. We’re here to learn! So, sit back, put on your drinking caps, and discover the origins of music itself.
