4/28/2009 Dig Up The Roots

 

Spring is here, calves and forearms are starting to appear on the landscape, and the KFAI listener can kick back and enjoy another job well done as the Pledge drive closed on the numbers!

Fats Waller starts us off with some Spring Cleaning leading into a set of Hot Jazz. We also heard Fats' 6 part London Suite in its full form; a delightful tune by Blossom Dearie welcoming Spring, and Julie Andrews from Camelot rejoicing in The Lusty Month Of May.

More 78s from English label EMI, as featured on a reissue record called Sprigs Of Time: 78s From The EMI Archive. The Brits' make a comeback with some material from the amazing set of records called Electric Muse: The Story of Folk Into Rock.

This and that, here and there, odds - n - ends.
