New project from Garrison Starr called Among the Oak Ash made the 6:30am list of the highlights of this week’s new releases. We also heard ne Allen Toussaint and Fort King:http://www.myspace.com/fortking, from L.A. Thanks to those guys for coming in early and playing live, and to Larry Englund:http://www.kfai.org/rhythmngrooves for being our St Paul Jazz Coorespondant.
Next week Radio Rumpus Room salutes the collapsed U.S. auto industry in Bankrupt! Hot Rods To Hell 2009. Join us for an unabashedly nostalgic look at the Glory Days of GM and Chrysler, when the brands Chevrolet, Cadillac, Buick, Olds, Pontiac, Chrysler, Dodge and Plymouth meant more than mere lines on corporate bankruptcy forms.
