It was a day of mostly new music, catching up on releases from the last couple of weeks, including brand new music by Reuben Wilson, Joan Stiles, David Murray, James Carter, Chip White, and Harris, Sanchez, and Scott, as well as music from Patricia Barber, and an interview with singer Rondi Charleston, not to forget the Mingus Moment.
10/6 in a nutshell…
The 4(+3)-in-a-row, once again incorporating the thematically consistent GotchaSKAvered (British sci-fi telly theme Echo 4-2 this month) is a set of tunes we’ll collectively call Buggin’ at TVs, after a lyric in the Judge Dread song One-Eyed Lodger. The TV topic extends out beyond GotchaSKAvered to include a Selecter tune from the album (Celebrate the Bullet) with a prominent TV gracing the cover. The Voov’s playlist touched on food (Mangos, Sarada Shabadaba), excercise (Stop and Go Mambo, Kentish Town Waltz), geography (International Jet Set, Melody of Spain) and, in a DJ-backhanded way, the passing of Steve Jobs (the Ringo in Shiina Ringo’s Ringo no Uta_ and in her name_ is an apple or apples). In the Ooh (the Opening Oldies Hour), Derrick Naomi help kick off the whole show wishing they too were apples. Also, look for a bumper crop of bumpers to close out the hour. Bump!
Thanks to everyone that pledged during this show. Thanks as well to David Cummings and Judity McKenzie for their help in pledge rapping. It was an almost all vinyl show today, with music from Wes Montgomery, Miles, Nat Adderley, John Coltane, Mingus, Clifford Brown and more….
