Despite all that Nature And Humankind could muster, a new playlist has sprung forth on OlioRadio. It includes nearly 750 recordings, ranging from early 1900's Ragtime to brand-new Metal (March IS Metal Month, y'know ;-)). There's also proof that speculation without information existed during WWII newscasts, and that Western Swing & Calypso were pretty damn cool...and still are.
What Artistes have been added to prove these theorems? Why, none other than 101 Strings Orchestra - The Atilla - B Mitchell Reed - Bob Wills and His Texas Playboys - The Box Tops (Pace, Alex Chilton) - Cookie and The Dedications - Dewey Phillips - Dion and The Belmonts - The Dukes - Eddie Hodges - The Elgins - Elliot Field - Fats Domino - The Five Encores - Frank Sinatra, Jules Munshin, Gene Kelly - Gene Vincent and the Blue Caps - Gil Scott-Heron (the new cd!) - John Daly - June Foray - Larry Lujack - Lewis Reed - The Lion - Lusine - Mabel King - Marlon Brando - Martin Sheen - Maynard Baird and his Orchestra - Patrick Gleeson, Mickey Hart, & The Rhythm Devils - Ray Price - Rick Shaw & Tonto - Ross Bagdasarian, Neal Hefti, and Carl Stalling - Slim Lamar and His Southerners - Skinny Bobby Harper - Sonny Burgess - The Chipmunks - They Might Be Giants - and White Wizard.
Don't forget to check out OlioRadio's home, olioradio.net (freshly remodeled!), and/or my musings through Twitter, @clarencejones. I also have a new blog, Bits of a Life, which talks of some of the objects that have continued to cling to
me over several decades (ok, 55 years).
Love and Peace, Clarence
