EPISODE DESCRIPTION

This show predates slightly the existence of this pod; I selected it as the unmarked disc that it was on showed serious signs of deterioration, though was still playable. It's a good sequence of things, starting with a jazz set featuring Cincinnati's Henry Theis and continuing through Willie "The Lion" Smith, Ed Kirkeby, Cab Calloway, Fletcher Henderson and wrapping with Swing kings Messrs. Goodman and Miller. The pop set which follows involves Lawrence Welk (really?), Hugo Montenegro, Link Wray, Sam the Sham and delivers a cautionary tale by the Carpenters. But then it takes a new wavey shift through Elvis the C, Yukihiro Takahashi, A.C. Marias and Wire. One factual update; the Willie The Lion piece may be earlier than I thought -- it wasn't published until 1925, but may date from his French period. This photo of me and my daughter was taken by Ohio alt-rock legend Myrna Marcarian at the Detroit Festival of the Arts exactly a year before this broadcast. Length: 58 mins.
