End Of The Century presents:

Auntie Georgie presents a Timeline of Ska for her first end of the Century! I realized that I actually don’t know much about the history of my alleged favorite genre of music, so forgive any transgressions that may occur during my slot. AND YES, I started early, but only by a decade or so, and just for a lil’ bit. There’s important stuff back there! I’m learning! Today’s show will be a general overview of the genre. I think next time I’ll focus on a specific wave of ska. I’m looking forward to doing more research for future shows! Enjoy!

Cause and Effect presents:

Serge Gainsbourg was a terrible person who made a lot of incredible music. He was like a French jazz rock Bill Cosby in the 60’s, basically. With the help of local rapper dogfriend, Noah Page will dive right into exactly what was so messed up about this guy.

He was tremendously influential though. And we’re find his footprints all over Beck, Portishead, and Regina Spektor, among the many other eccentric artists who came after him.

Contemporaries of Serge like the weirdo favorites Can and Brigitte Bardot also round out our show. Bardot was actually married to Gainsbourg for a while, and Serge’s daughter, Charlotte Gainsbourg, has also created music and had an acting career along the same lines.

But most importantly, we’ll try to figure out why and how such an awful person, who has done such terrible things, could still be so beloved. Spoiler alert: the music is really good. Compare to Michael Jackson, R. Kelly, etc.

InterTribal presents:

Greetings and Welcome,

This Saturday we celebrate and honor the children. With mother’s day and father’s day out of the way and with all the horrible press about the children being separated from their families (this includes infants taken from their mother’s breasts), it is time for healing of the human spirit.

Walk in Peace,

Tall Feathers
