Chuck Berry talks about genre on Soul Train

Laquinta asks "Do you find blues more soothing than today's sounds?"1 to which Chuck Berry replies "Well, to me, each type of music is a feeling, and blues, there's nothing that can replace it when you're blue. And there's nothing that can replace rock when you're reeling, and so on..."

Playlist for the Unpopular Music Webcast for March 25, 2017

Here we are once again,

We're a bit light on jazz this week, a bit more Afro-pop. Additionally, while looking for something to fill a gap, I came across a bunch of tracks that didn't fit, but seemed to kind of go well together, so they now make up most of the second hour. And it being the first weekend of spring, we have our traditional Stravinsky offering (no pun intended).

A mixed bag today, we start with some hard bop and then jump around a bit. Maybe too many downers in the second hour, but it perks up towards the end.

Playlist for the Unpopular Music Webcast for March 11, 2017

This week, Unpopular Music celebrates its third anniversary. I had planned to do something special, but instead put off assembling the program until about four hours ahead of time. We have a typically jazzy first hour, with a somewhat pretentious freeform second hour. It was also freezing cold (almost literally) in the studio, and the headphone amplifier had a short circuit. Nonetheless, it's a show I think you'll like (if you like this sort of thing, that is)!!

Playlist for the Unpopular Music Webcast for March 4, 2017

A last minute creation which got off to a terrible start, but turned out OK. A pretty wide variety of music this week - some different flavors of jazz, music from Algeria and Ethiopia, French baroque, poetry readings, and a couple of pop songs. I was hesitant at first about the opera selection, but I heard a program on another station that played both Maria Callas and Patsy Cline and figured "why can't I?"
