9AM–noon
Surface Noise with Joe McGasko presents Steel Pan-demonium!: Originally developed by the lower classes out of metal junk in the 1930s on the islands of Trinidad and Tobago, the steel pan, otherwise known as the steel drum, spread throughout the Caribbean after World War II. Musicians hacked off the ends of empty oil drums, tuned the resulting pans with hammers to create notes in the metal, and formed steel orchestras that became popular at carnival time. Because much of the repertoire of the steel drum orchestras was eventually geared to tourists, many popular and classical pieces were adapted for it. Steel Pan-demonium! presents a choice selection of classic and modern steel bands playing classical, pop, rock, soul, and funk music covers, including some that are pretty surprising. Whatever the source material, the steel pan imbues every song with a joyful lilt and transforms it into a celebration. This CD premium is designed for maximum happiness!

Jason Elbogen’s How to Look Back at High School As The Best Four Years of Your Life: In the 1970’s and 80’s, administrators at hundreds–if not thousands–of secondary schools in the United States felt so strongly about the musical worth of their budding adolescents that a decision was made to press vinyl records documenting their students’ efforts. 98% of these albums offer uninspiring renditions of uninspiring songs. ‘How To Look Back at High School…’ focuses on the other 2% that I’ve come across after listening to too many of these lps. This collection of amateurish, exuberant, and occasionally jaw-dropping tracks will save you time, space, and money.
