Monstrous Movie Music is a CD label specializing in previously unavailable 1940s-1970s film music of the finest composers working that era even though most are virtually unknown. MMM's initial releases were "re-recordings" faithfully restored and orchestrated by the label's co-founder Kathleen Mayne, before eventually releasing original soundtracks as well, all with striking covers painted by horror artist Robert Aragon and science fiction illustrator Vincent DiFate and meticulously researched liner notes by own er David Schecter who discusses the label for a second week.
Saturday, January 26th, 6am - 9am
on Shrunken Planet with Jeffrey Davison
Erica Buettner's first album, True Love and Water (2011), was steeped in the sound of the British folk revival. After moving back to the U.S. from Europe, she was diagnosed with cancer, which meant that work on her second recording, The Book of Waves, was put on hold. The album was released in 2018. While still retaining its folk roots, the new record has richer, more complex arrangements. Tune in for a set of songs and conversation. Erica also has a show Friday, January 25th at Pete's Candy Store.
