Iggy & The Stooges: Raw Power

From Joyride Media | 58:59

Tracing the creation and influence of The Stooges 1973 album.

Like the classic quote about the Velvet Underground, it didn’t sell many records at the time, but everyone who bought one started a band.  We hear from three such people -  Henry Rollins (Black Flag / Rollins Band), Mike Watt (Minutemen / Firehose) and Johnny Marr (Smiths / Modest Mouse / 7 Worlds Collide) , who each count this record as a major influence on their own legendary musical careers.  Noted music photographer Mick Rock is also interviewed.

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.

Miles Davis: Kind Of Blue

From Joyride Media | Part of the Black History Month Specials series | 59:00

One-hour special explores the creation and impact of Miles Davis' album "Kind Of Blue."

Kobphoto_small

On two days in the spring of 1959, after a string of critically acclaimed and succesful albums, Miles Davis recorded what would become Kind Of Blue.  Nothing would ever be the same – for Jazz or for Miles Davis.


There’s no real way to tell why a record captures the imagination and attention of the world.  Some do, some don’t.  Miles Davis constantly recorded music, and almost all of it added to his popularity and critical acclaim.  But over the years, Kind Of Blue found a larger and larger audience.  Soon enough, it became the best selling Jazz album of all time.


Through the host Josh Jackson and interviews with musicians Herbie Hancock, Jimmy Cobb, Jackie McLean, David Amram and others, you will hear the story of the making of Kind Of Blue, as well as the lasting impact of this classic Jazz staple.

U2: Achtung Baby

From Joyride Media | 59:00

Bono, The Edge, Adam Clayton and Larry Mullen, Jr look back on the year they almost broke up but decided put out a little album called "Achtung Baby" instead.

Achtung_small It’s not easy for any successful band to re-invent themselves. In the early 1990s, U2 learned this the hard way, when their attempts to follow up the anthemic rock of The Joshua Tree and the blues-tinged Rattle & Hum with something totally different.  The process nearly broke up the band, but also took them where they needed to be to reconstruct the band piece by piece, and create music like they've never made before.  "What we did," says U2 front-man Bono,  "was we broke up that band and formed another one, but with the same people…I think we all recognize that making Achtung Baby was the reason we’re still here now."

In this one-hour special, comments by all four U2 members (Bono, The Edge, Adam Clayton and Larry Mullen, Jr) tell the story of their November 1991 release, Achtung Baby,  its songs like "Mysterious Ways," "One," "Even Better than the Real Thing" and the subsequent tours that redefined both how U2 would be perceived by the world and themselves.  These rare, insightful interviews are provided by filmmaker Davis Guggenheim (It Might Get Loud, An Inconvenient Truth), from the footage of his acclaimed 2011 documentary, U2 From the Sky Down.

Music heard throughout the program include the classic album tracks and rare or previously unreleased outtakes and covers compiled for the Achtung Baby: Deluxe Edition.  Detailed cue sheet, online report form and other updates are online at http://radiosho.ws/u2

Screen_shot_2014-05-30_at_4 Brazilian music has always been inclusive, and German producers Frank and Christian Berman have raised that idea to a new level.  They took only the vocal performances from classic American songs and invited an all-star list of Brazilian musicians to create new arrangements and play along.
