The Gazillionth (or so) Monty Python Radio Special

From Joyride Media | 59:00

"It's"

Montypython_small THE GAZILLIONTH (OR SO) MONTY PYTHON RADIO SPECIAL A new one-hour Monty Python radio documentary hosted Keith Olbermann. Monty Python debuted on the BBC nearly 40 years ago, and their mix of everything absurd, obscure and English has inspired generations comedians - from the professionals to the amateur line-quoters. Their skits, films and songs continue to be both poignant and funny today, whether experienced for the first or gazillionth time on TV, film, disc (plastic or vinyl), broadway or anytime a devoted fan is confronted with a cheese shop, a dead parrott or a shrubbery. Between excerpts of their finest moments, Cast members Eric Idle, John Cleese and Terry Jones (with help from Python geek/historian Kim Howard Johnson) look back on the men, the myths, and legends behind them. Musician Mark Stewart analyzes the musical works that are equally as influential as their skits and films. Radio broadcasters Michael Berger and Jeff Prescott discuss Python's impact on concerned citizens of San Diego and the FCC. Carol Cleveland, a Python in everything but the title, adds what it's like to be a real woman. The Gazillionth (or so) Monty Python Radio Special is hosted by television and radio personality Keith Olbermann. He can currently be seen and heard injecting Monty Python references into his coverage of news, politics and sports on The Countdown with Keith Olbermann (MSNBC), The Dan Patrick Show (ESPN Radio) and Football Night in America (NBC-TV). Content advisories includes references to the human anatomy (bodyparts and ailments), ranging from clinical terminology from medical journals, textbooks and diagnoses, to English slang commonly featured in PBS broadcasts of classic BBC programs. Full transcripts, including song lyrics, can be provided on request.

Dennis Wilson: Pacific Ocean Blue

From Joyride Media | 59:00

Exploration of Dennis Wilson's solo album "Pacific Ocean Blue" and rare, unreleased "Bambu" sessions.

Picture1_small DENNIS WILSON - PACIFIC OCEAN BLUE In 1977 Dennis Wilson's Pacific Ocean Blue became the first solo LP to be released by a member of the legendary Beach Boys. Dennis, the band's surfer, drummer and free spirit, emerged from the shadow of his older brother, pop genius Brian Wilson, and shocked everyone with a sound and style unlike any other. More than 30 years later, it stands as one of the 1970s great cult-classic albums and a crucial puzzle-piece in the Wilson family's long musical history.

Throughout this one-hour special, Dennis Wilson's friends and family recall how he developed his musical voice - one that was full of surprises, but also one that reflected Wilson's dark, moody life. While acclaim grew for both his Beach Boys contributions and his solo material, Wilson's creative output was sadly stifled by his hard and fast lifestyle. His plans to follow Pacific Ocean Blue with an even grander album, Bambu, were left unfinished at the time of his drowning death in 1983, but many songs from those last sessions were filled with a hopefulness that belied his tragic decline.

Interview subjects include Brian Wilson, Dennis Wilson's first wife, Carole Bloom, former Beach Boys manager Jim Guercio, Pacific Ocean Blue co-producer Gregg Jakobson, and engineer Jon Hanlon, Bambu collaborator Carli Munoz, and journalist Anthony DeCurtis. We also hear from Dennis Wilson, himself, courtesy of a rare radio visit at the time Pacific Ocean Blue was released. Many tracks from that album, as well as the long lost Bambu sessions are heard throughout this one-hour program hosted by noted rock historian and Smithereens drummer Dennis Diken.

One-hour radio documentary explores Benny Goodman's life and music, and the impact it had on both jazz and popular culture.

Default-piece-image-2 Once upon a time in America, Jazz music was the chart topping mainstream music of the day. Jazz bands travelled the country, spreading swing and soul to huge crowds. At the top of the superstar list was a man titled "The King of Swing," clarinetist Benny Goodman. From the mid 1930's to the early 40's, Goodman led bands from big to small, but his influence went far beyond music. He was the first popular national artist to integrate his musicians on stage and screen. In this one-hour radio special, host Gary Walker (WBGO-FM, Newark, NJ) will lead your listeners through this part of Goodman's live and music. His best known recordings are featured with insightful comments from former Goodman archivist and band member Loren Schoenberg, biographer Ross Firestone and clarinetist Dr. Michael White.

"Religion always played an important part of Elvis' life and quest of his purpose in life.

The Byrds: There is a Season / Farther Along (Series)

Produced by Joyride Media

Most recent piece in this series:

The Byrds (part 2): Farther Along

From Joyride Media | Part of the The Byrds: There is a Season / Farther Along series | 59:05

Unissued_small The second of two one-hour documentaries on The Byrds, the continuously groundbreaking band who bridged the gaps between The Beatles, Bob Dylan, Pete Seeger, the Beach Boys, the Los Angeles psychedelic underground and classic country. Each hour is hosted by singer-songwriter Laura Cantrell, and covers a distinct period of their prolific history that can either be aired as one two-part series, or as your choice of two insightful one-hour programs. FARTHER ALONG picks up the story in 1968 and details how the Byrds' legendary Act I was followed by one of rock history's most fascinating second acts. Despite their lower record sales, the Byrds' later incarnations alternately defined and re-defined "country-rock," thanks to the influential contributions by folks like Gram Parsons and guitarist Clarence White. As with the first segment, FARTHER ALONG feature the wide range of music that made The Byrds of the 60s most influential bands, along with comments by its two longest-lasting members: Roger McGuinn and Chris Hillman. Writers David Fricke, Anthony DeCurtis, Lenny Kaye and Byrds historian Sid Griffin are also interviewed. Instead of being directed by the singular vision of one leader, The Byrds were consistently led by everybody's contributions - from their original five members to the musicians involved with their later years. "They all brought something new and something defining," says journalist David Fricke, "and it all became part of the Byrds sound. They didn?t change the Byrds to the degree that it changed the sound. What they did became the Byrds." Broadcast Window: Begins late September 2006, available for all USA radio broadcasters at no cost. 9/30 update: In addition to the 0:59 version posted on the audio page, there is also a 0:54 "news-hole" show in two parts - a 1:00 billboard and the 53:00 program.
