Kim Jensen calls in to talk about her newest collection of poetry, Bread Alone. Naomi Shihab Nye has said of her work, “Kim Jensen’s poems are searing and spare. They will haunt you and stretch your vision. You won’t be the same person after reading them that you were before. More information about Bread Alone can be found at www.kimjensen.org:http://www.kimjensen.org.

DJ Fathertime returns just in time to celebrate the miracle (and we really mean miracle) of Keith Richards’ 66th year. During this edition of the show, we recognize the considerable impact of this most soulful of the Stones. We also assemble a delegation of our own to comment on climate change during the Cop 15 Summit.
We’ve learned that No Doubt has a new 45 out and we don’t have it! But we DO have one of the cuts on it, and it appears in the first hour here, amongst choice works by the likes of The Skatalites, Carlos Malcolm, Millie Small, Intensified, The Selecter and others. In Hour 2… Can an oldie-but-goodie be a mere 10 years old? A jazz-trio-powered nugget from the early days of Shiina Ringo’s pro career kicks off a set of certifiable moldies by everybody from Tab Smith to Earl Bostic to Guy Lombardo, winding up with a merely 11-year-old side by Stereophonic Space Sound Unlimited. The 4(+1)-at-4 explores the 2Tone label (including choice non-ska works) and Fizzy returns with a remix of last week’s Lolli. Absolutely ‘F’-ervescent!
Tis the season. Our annual re-broadcast of The Christmas Story from the Rev Davidson Loehr tonight and again next Wednesday. The first half of the program features trio music from Norway, Sweden and a new release from GO’ Music in Denmark.
