We heard new releases this program from Sergio Mendes and Mason Jennings. Sergio’s new one, Encanto, is not very different from Timeless in that he invites superstars of the American and Brazilian pop scenes to join him on some funky and tropical tracks. In the Ever showcases the strength of songwriting and topical tracks we know and love from Mason Jennings. So, not unexpected releases from either talented artist, but great nonetheless and I’m glad to share them with you. Check out what else we heard…
And the Radio Gods looked down and laughed at what romantic fools we mortals be…..Big Time Technical Difficulties put the program’s start back by an hour. Aren’t computors supposed to make our Broadcast Life easier? Our sixty minute Lost Weekend was filled by a syndicated special FRANKSINATRA:A VOICE IN TIME.
Meanwhile, back at RB Central, We celebrate the End of another School Year—School Is OUT!!!! The Big Book of Days yields up Birthdays-in-Blue for Sir Paul McCartney, Don ‘Sugarcane’ Harris, Unsung Motown Heroine Brenda Holloway, David ‘Little Caesar’ Johnson, and composer Gene DePaul from the Golden Age of American Popular Song.
No guests, no themes, just good noise music this morning.
New releases are noted by an asterisk in front of the listing.
The last 3 songs were ‘music of our times’ and were lyrical comments on the Iraq war and war in general.
