Ah, old TV shows and their themes – such memories. But sometimes, the themes were more memorable and better written than the shows themselves. TV aficionado Andrea Ulrich presents an hour of great TV show music on the Wave Project: some, well-known and many, obscure and verrryy interesting. Test your powers of recollection, Sunday, December 21 at 6 pm.

Go to Poquito y Bueno on the KFAI homepage Programs and Schedule drop down menu and check out the program archive of our July 30 webcast. Listen at your leisure, although it’s hardly a relaxing segment. This half-hour of the solo guitar virtuosos of the last generation will have you picking your jaw up off the floor – absolutely amazing, unbelievable playing!

We feature Unlovable Flamenco on this segment of Poquito y Bueno: A Short and Sweet Half-Hour of Flamenco. I’m talking about the pure stuff – flamenco before it got mixed up with world music – and we’ve got some of the great old gals singing it. It’s the kind of singing that drove my father from the room faster than Joan Baez – but then Dad was a fan of Eartha Kitt and Peggy Lee.
