Muse and Music - David Bowie - Sunday, June 16, 5PM

All -

From his embryonic start as Davey Jones and the Mannish Boys to Ziggy Stardust and beyond, few artists have embodied the creative - the true "Muse" as David Bowie.  This was one of my very first Muse and Music programs on KPFZ - it's my second one, in fact!  Anyway, it held up well, and I do get requests for it - so that's what's on deck this week!

David Bowie and Bing Crosby?  Yep....  It happened!

THE MUSIC OF ANCIENT GREECE WAS ALMOST UNIVERSALLY PRESENT IN ANCIENT GREEK SOCIETY, FROM MARRIAGES, FUNERALS, AND RELIGIOUS TIDRICKS AND MONSTER CHARIOT RACES, TO THEATRE, FOLK MUSIC, AND THE AS A POETIC ACCOMPANYMENT - SOUNDS LIKE A SONG TO ME!

Duke Ellington is GOD.  That is all!  Change my mind: musickpfz@gmail.com

Wednesday, May 29 - 6-7AM... 110 Jazz 100 Django Reinhart OAD052924 RADxxx

All - 

Okay, a jaunty excursion this week on "Jazz 100" it's swing Jazz with a fellow that largely defined the genre - Django Reinhart!  This is from the "Best Of" jazz guitarists.  I couldn't fit in the entire album, but did all that I could.
