on
Shrunken Planet with Jeffrey Davison
Singer-songwriter Cal Folger Day, originally from D.C. but now a Brooklynite, paid us a visit recently for a live set and interview. Her latest recording, Drom-d'reau, has recently been released. Cal's wry sense of humor, evident both in her stage patter as well as her songs, belies the fact that she is a songwriter of uncommon depth and passion. Stylistically, she seems to channel some pre-war blues and country, 40's torchiness and a bit of Dylan, circa 1965, while remaining a thoroughly contemporary singer. For an unusual treat, catch her directing Six Children's Choruses (for choir and orchestra) by Bartok, on Friday, August 2nd, at Jalopy Theatre in Brooklyn.

Saturday, June 29th, 2013, 11am - 1pm
on
Michael Shelley's show
Michael welcomes Donnie and Joe Emerson (in town for a June 29th gig at The Mercury Lounge) who'll drop by in person to discuss the recent reissue of their 1979 do-it-yourself classic "Dreamin' Wild". The brothers grew up on a farm in rural Washington State and recorded the album in the home studio their father took a second mortgage to build for them. Their isolated upbringing, limited exposure to mainstream music and lack of formal record production experience led them to produce unique and endearing recordings, which 33 years later sound an odd mixture of dated and timeless. AND Michael chats with Ian Rusten, co-author of the new book “The Beach Boys in Concert”. Written after more than ten years of exhaustive research, the book provides a unique window into the Beach Boys' successes, personal tragedies, inter-band dramas, and globe-trotting, rock-and-roll adventures from 1961 to 2012.

Two compelling acoustic bands from Italy, north and south: Turin's Taluna explore styles from around Italy, the Mediterranean and Eastern Europe. The barnstorming band brings its US / Mexican road show to The Shrine in Harlem on Friday June 21st before making its Garden State debut tonight at FMU.

Canzoniere Grecanico Salentino (CGS) from Salento, "the heel of the boot" of southeast Italy, keeps the focus on its own roots: The cathartic pizzica tarantata - the (literally) trance-inducing tarantella style from the band's home region.

They've been off record since 1997, but the kings of Memphis soul-punk have returned to heap another tinnitus-inducing set of songs on the unsuspecting public.
