Thursday, October 25th, Kevin Patterson phones in from Canada. He is the author of Consumption, a novel that has been described as a staggeringly beautiful elegy for the traditional life of the Inuit… Showing the inevitable loss when cultures collide.
This week we say goodbye to October by saying hello to the new, outstanding, essential 2-CD set of Aretha Franklin that comprises previously unheard studio masters from her great years at Atlantic. We also sample the new CD issued as part of the annual Oxford American southern music issue. And Brother Tad gets spooky with some ghoulish Halloween music.
Beautiful voices from Swedish women: Gunnel Mauritzon, Johanna Bolje, Sophia Sandin and Ulrika Boden. With Home-baked treats from Kaisa Andersson and great backing from Bjorn Stabi, Bengan Janson and Gunnfjauns Kapell.
