Your Music Obscurities and oddities


119:41 minutes (109.58 MB)

Your Music typically focuses on music the other stations in town won't typically play, not due to quality, but because it's not in keeping with the other stations' formats, or is too political, or not released in the U.S., or it's too old, or the tunes are too long, etc. That leave a huge range of possibilities without sacrificing anything in terms of quality, or artistic merit. This edition features REALLY off-the-beaten track selections of exceptional quality from many countries and at least 5 decades.

Your Music - Monday September 8th 2014

118:51 minutes (108.81 MB)

Your Music Joe Sample


1:59:22 minutes (109.28 MB)

Joe Sample passed away this month, so, in commemoration we bring you two full hours of his music. Although his later works kind of bordered on "smooth jazz", which I consider to be an abomination, he steered clear of that watered-down soulless drivel, copying only some of the sounds, and utilizing "cross-over" musicians like David Sanborn. Joe Sample was schooled in the "hard-bop" style of Jazz and he maintained a funky edge. So, while this may be considered kind of "light" and "slick", compared to the kinds of Jazz I usually favor on this program, it is still expressive and original, and undeniably skilled.

As the South Carolina legislature debates removing the confederate flag, this week's show takes a musical look at the ugliness of racism through the music of racists, and a diverse African American response (don't worry; only the first three songs are racist).

your music the other southern heritage


1:58:53 minutes (108.84 MB)

folks defending the confederate flag often claim it's a symbol of 'southern heritage". I don't buy that for a hot second. Do you? No one ever asks them what they mean by that, but they volunteer things occasionally - stuff about "states rights" and the imposition of government over-reach. They'll claim that it's "not about slavery and hate". They might as well claim that slavery itself wasn't about bondage or involuntary labor. Their revising of history has a subtler side, however when even more enlightened reflections on Southern culture overlook the experiences of people of color and, in particular, women of color. This edition of Your Music features all female artists from the South who had or have tremendous influence, most of whom were or are not white - a forgotten aspect of "Southern heritage", and one truly worth celebrating. You'll hear Josephine Baker, Big Mama Thornton, Sister Rosetta Tharp, Mahalia Jackson Pura Fe, Memphis Minnie, Hazel Dickens, Bobbi Humphrey, Odetta and more.

people who defend the confederate emblems often claim it's about
