2/2/2010 Dig Up The Roots

 

This show was all over the place and all over time. Wishing for spring with the likes of Astrud Gilberto, Blossom Dearie and one of the original English 'Hippies' - Vashti Bunyon.

Texas swing swung out with a series of 10 records on Decca, including Adolf Hofner who sang in both English Czech.

Beatnik jazz stylings led into a nice cover set of Kraftwerk tunes - how can this be done? You can't mix generas and music styles like that on the radio...
