Show #614: Cole Porter

June 9 is the 127th birth anniversary of one of America's greatest songwriters, Cole Porter!

Tune in that day for vintage recordings from the 1920s & 30s of Porter classics (including several from people who INTRODUCED the songs on Broadway!)

Show #613: Post Punk from Postcard!

My apprentice, Melinda Belles, hosted the show on June 2.

On this episode, she featured lots of great post punk sounds (mainly from the short lived but revered label Postcard).

Lots of great sounds from bands such as Orange Juice!

You can listen to this show through the morning of June 16 here:
