Playlist for the Unpopular Music webcast for May 30, 2015

Summer's here (unofficially, the paperwork is still in progress, the sun is still moving north) and the time is right for this weeks playlist! (well at 2:00 on Saturday is always the right time)

The guy in the parentheses is such a killjoy!

See the playlist after the break...
(It's not so much a break as it is a link to a separate page that contains the whole post)
Seriously, man, chill out

Too hot to blog

Yeah, that's my excuse, it's too darn hot. I blogged more when there were snowstorms. So, I'll just throw a bunch of links at you.

Webcast info for May 23, 2015

Image result for memorial day images barbecue

It's Memorial Day Weekend, and the studio is closed, so therefore no live show this week. Instead we are presenting an encore presentation of the June 7, 2014 episode. It's an upbeat summery episode, in my opinion at least.

You might also wish to check out last year's Memorial Day extravaganza, which also includes a celebration of Sun Ra's centenary.

Playlist for the Unpopular Music webcast for May 16, 2015

Another week, another playlist, and not much else.

A couple of items picked up from the merch table at the Dave Douglas/Joe Lovano show on Thursday night, and a fine show it was. This is one of those shows where I've sort of programmed myself out to a degree, not that you'll miss me.

Anyway, enjoy the journey, after the break...

Playlist for the Unpopular Music webcast for May 9, 2015

Another week already, eh?!?

Here's another last minute playlist. Trying to mix it up a little but still find myself going back to certain wells more often than I should. But enjoyable all the same!

There is however a mostly allusive set for Mother's Day, so there's that.

Also, and also totally coincidental, several musicians make multiple appearances - Robin Eubanks, Fred Hopkins, Eric Dolphy, Ralph Alessi, and Don Byron. Also one song written by Jerome Kern and Oscar Hammerstein and one written over the chord changes to another. Synergy, baby!

See for your self after the break ...

Playlist for the Unpopular Music webcast for May 2, 2015

A mostly jazzy show today, kind of thrown together at the last minute. There's a set in the second hour that sticks out like a sore thumb provides some contrast, but enjoyable all the same if you ask me. I'd listen to it.

Judge for yourself, after the break...
