Hear this show now: | Add or read comments
Erika Stucky incorporates elements of kitschy Alpine folklore, cheesy American pop, and jazz and world musics into her sometimes serious, sometimes satirical, always theatrical performances. Her various projects carry her from tuba-driven Michael Jackson covers to histrionic Swiss-German dialect vocal competitions to unlikely mixtures of African rhythms and Swiss alphorns. And she's becoming increasingly obsessed with, of all things, the yodel.
Rob met Erika at FMU while she toured the US in September. On this show we hear the interview, cd tracks and some live performance including - of course - plenty of yodeling.

Special thanks to Pro-Helvetia and SwissRoots, and to former FMU volunteer Ralph McKay of Sixpack Film.
The final hour of the show features mostly Bollywood film music - in honor of the Academy Awards of course! Isn't that a good enough excuse to indulge?

I know it's a pain, but speaking as a archive slumming i-tunes timeshifter, it would really help if the playlist had some time-stamps, 'cause I keep getting lost and I want to know what's playing.

Max, the reason I have stopped posting timestamps is a little complicated but has to do in part with my feelings about how music is shared. This is especially true because I have had live music on my show quite often lately. Keep in mind, if you use quicktime player (instead of itunes), you can move around even within the mp3 archive. No, not as easy to navigate as with timestamps, but you can at least estimate where a song will fall. - Rob W

You can also jump around quite easily if you're listening with Winamp (for Windows) or VLC (open source, runs on Windows, Mac, Linux, and more).

I see your point. I wasn't even thinking about jumping to a specific song. It was more about being able to look at the playlist to see the information on a song that jumps out at me.
