Playlist for the Unpopular Music Webcast for February 25, 2017

We have a typically jazzy first hour, followed by a somewhat loose collection of odds and ends (though still somewhat jazzy) for the second. Technical difficulties around the 45 minute mark leave me a bit frazzled (I mean, "James Moody on guitar"), but we, and the BFR computer generally recover. (Although if I had to do it over again, I would have put the Grachan Moncur tune at the top of the second hour (and figured out how to correctly pronounce his first name))

Also, a rare joint appearance by Meredith and Thelonious Monk (no relation).

See the playlist after the break...

Webcast info for February 18, 2017

Hi folks,

I have to be out of town this weekend, so in my stead we will have my pre-recorded self presenting the Unpopular Music episode from last October 8th. It's a bit on the obscure side, and the recording is a bit fuzzy, but there are many stimulating sounds.

We'll be back next week.

Playlist for the Unpopular Music Webcast for February 11, 2017

Greetings from a snowy Somerville Saturday. I was a little disheveled for most of the program. I sometimes say that the host is the weakest link in this production. This is one of those times.

I forgot to get the random playlist that was running before my time slot to stop on time, so that Ted Hawkins track carried over past noon, but it was too good to leave out.

A relatively low jazz content this week, there's entries from Brazil and Africa, some new-classical type things from the Soviet Union, German techno-pop, some long slow quiet things, a couple of interesting pop covers and more.

Meanwhile the playlist is in its usual place after the break...

Playlist for the Unpopular Music Webcast for February 4, 2017

A show for the midway point of winter. I have not heard whether or not the groundhog saw his shadow. Doesn't matter. Winter will end whenever Trump orders it.

However, I, alone, decide the playlist. See for yourself after the break...
