on the air - show #2


Back to the airwaves...

Your Mind and We Belong Together - Love
A much smoother ride this time out, as the problems with CD player prompts have been fixed, though the one deck still sticks when attempting to eject a disc. Grabbed the disc on the top of the stack, featuring the A-side of the last single by the original incarnation of Love.

There's A Guy Down At The Chip Shop, Swears He's Elvis - Kirsty MacColl
Yesterday's Wine - Willie Nelson
Docteur Jekyll et Monsieur Hyde - Serge Gainsbourg
Summer Sun - Koop featuring Yukimi Nagano
Steven Smith - The Organ
Sissyneck - Beck

The opening set, playing hopscotch with several eras and genres. Kinda like the Organ disc - what is it about acts on the Mint label I'm attracted to? The Koop track is from a compilation thrown together to tie-in with the Pink Panther DVD box set, mostly loungey remixes.

WKNR Newscast June 20/66 - George Hunter
Remington Razor ad - Frank Zappa
Pata Pata - Miriam Makeba

Playing a taste of mid-60s AM radio. The newscast is about suspicious blazes in Detroit, reported in a stern style on one of Detroit's top stations of the era. I believe the Zappa ad won an award, and wouldn't have sounded out of place on an album like Absolutely Free or Uncle Meat.

RAY CHARLES MEMORIAL SET
Mess Around
Mary Ann
Hallelujah, I Love Her So
Bye Bye Love
Busted
Let's Go Get Stoned
Eleanor Rigby

R.I.P. Brother Ray.

Bring My Father A Gift - Royal City
Pedalictus Rag - Mainline
Hockey Night In Canada Theme
A City Box - Barmitzvah Brothers
King of Kensington Theme
Je Cherche - Les Lutins
This Wheel's On Fire - Ian & Sylvia

Canadian Corner time, with tunes ranging from 60s Quebec rock to Guelph locals made good.

Jimmy Carter Says "Yes" - Gene Marshall
I Lost My Girl To An Argentine Cowboy - unidentified singer
City's Hospital Patients - Teri Summers & The Librettos
Fun in the Fundus (excerpt) - Rev. Fred Lane
Hot Cakes & Sausage - Ernie Kovacs & the Tony DeSimone Trio
Brush Up Your Shakespeare - Tony Randall & Jack Klugman

First three tracks are song-poems, followed by a bunch of crazy artists let loose in the recording studio. End the set with TV tie-ins. R.I.P. Tony.

Don't Be Denied/The Bridge/Last Dance - Neil Young
Show ends with side two of Time Fades Away.
