As both my parents worked for the good old 'Beeb', I am a bit of a BBC junkie.
My wife and I discovered the BBC Radio 4 'Soul Music' series during a UK visit in 2012.
It is widely broadcast through such things as Public Radio International (PRI), and there are podcasts, of course. I believe there are over 20 seasons of shows.

Each episode is built around a single piece of music, and people talk about the piece from all different perspectives. It is frequently very moving.

Some faves, episode-wise;
Brothers in Arms
The Skye Boat Song
Send in the Clowns
Feed the Birds
Baker Street

A very listenable 1/2 hr radio show.

The mention of Stan Kenton brings back fond memories. He lived not far from where our young big band rehearsed and he was a frequent visitor and mentor. A very nice and generous person. We were guests at all of his L.A. Neophonic series concerts and members of his band became teachers for our group.

That's awesome Norm. What a great experience for you guys!

That band is still playing! See: http://www.esquires.org/

I listen to a series of podcasts:
Making Sense by modern day philosopher Sam Harris (Very good!)
NPR Politics
BBC News
Radio Lab
Hidden Brain
Freakonomics
HardCore History (Excellent!!!)
NPR's Fresh Air
Invisibilia
Embedded (Very good)
More Perfect (Facinating)
Malcolm Gladwell's Revisionist History (Very good)


All of these are interesting.

OBLIVION by Astor Piazzola

     Here is a good hour ( 1:03:46 ), of the best 15 versions of the song "OBLIVION",  vocals and instrumentals, that I like to listen to.  I hope you like it.  Smiley  I play this one on my accordion also,  although a much simplified version,  which nonetheless,  will still impart the compelling eerie sadness.  And here is a copy of the powerful lyrics (most interesting - I never knew there were lyrics ...).    Here is a summary, and the video link

I've just come across the audio archives of the Royal Aeronautical Society. Only just got started but I've already found an absolutely fascinating mixture of interviews and lectures from all sorts of people but including Sir Geoffrey de Havilland, Sir Fredrick Handley Page, Barnes Wallis various test pilots etc right through to more recent lectures.

Heavy guitar stuff. Sabbath/Zeppelin/Purple etc. right through to church burning and murdering each other Black Metal.

This goes some way towards explaining my joyful personality...!

Cheers,

Not to be a buzzkill, but silence, pure silence. I have tinnitus so its more like a high pitch, like striking the edge of a crystal glass lightly with a spoon, only it never shuts off. Still its my brand of silence.

I need a little help. My cousin Easy Langston was with a band in South Carolina. The name of the band is: or was

Easy and the Recliners


They play on stage in Lazy Boy Recliners, well they used to but no stations around San Antonio, Texas play them. Looking for a little help finding how I can hear from him.

Did a quick Google Search and found approx.  6 bands in  midwest (KS, Ill., Iowa, etc and one FL) that use the name "Recliners". From the separate ,  but similarly worded listings, I'm thinking several could be the same band(?).  None, AFAICT, use the  "Easy".  I was going to search "Easy Langston and the R's"...next, but frankly, I lost interest.  Grin
