I like some drums, I play some drums, I play some drums on the radio. Today is no exception–listen for a wild and extensive drum solo in this week’s show.
and Oh man, musical saws show up.
Somehow toward the end of the show, I got into a Christmas mood. And when Christmas comes around at WCBN, the Destiny’s Child Christmas album must be played…along with other Christmas-y things. Like honky tonk piano.
How I love finding religious vinyl around the station. Priests get me in the mood for spoken sounds and storytelling. Contained herein is a 1970s documentary about radio. Remember in the 1960s when all married couples did was bicker? There’s some of that here, too. This show also gives you the opportunity to learn some French (we are an educational radio station). Bernie Taupin (close collaborator with Elton John) stopped by the studio for a quick interview. The show ends with a rousing performance of a work by Samuel Beckett.
