There's some new tracks in the new playlist at OlioRadio. Well kind Sir, prithee who are the Artistes added to the most eclectic station anywhere?, you ask. Lemme tell ya the names: Ann Reed - Blind Roosevelt Graves and Brother - Bob Dylan - Bob Wills - Bugs Bunny and Giovanni Jones - Continental Five - Dizzy Gillespie and Charlie Parker (live) - Edward M. Favor - Fleetwood Mac (the Peter Green version live) - Frank Zappa (live) - John Coltrane - Jonathan Coulton - My Bloody Valentine - Peter, Paul and Mary - Randy Newman (from his new cd!) - the Search for Tomorrow Organist - Sid King and the Five Strings - The New Mastersounds - Thelonious Monk Quartet (live, aussi) - Willie Nelson and Wynton Marsalis (yes, you read that right...and also live) - and Zero Mostel and Gene Wilder.
To my friends and former neighbors in Houston, Galveston, the Bolivar Peninsula, and the surrounding area: my thoughts and prayers are with you. Katrina didn't defeat us, and Ike won't defeat you.
Love and Peace, Clarence

The OlioRadio Top 25 for August 2008 is here

The Listeners to OlioRadio have spoken! Again! The latest OlioRadio Top 25 Tracks list is now online at These are the top-rated recordings as voted by listeners (between August 4th and September 3rd, 2008)..

As always, the Top 25 is pretty darned eclectic. From the past two decades come Lyle Lovett, Dread Zeppelin, Mosquitos, and Marcia Ball's release from earlier this summer (well, summer in the Northern Hemisphere). Then, from the 80s there's Warren Zevon (live!) and Time Zone, while the 60s and 70s give us Laurie Johnson, The Mamas and The Papas, and George Carlin. But, also loved were Prince Albert Hunt's Texas Ramblers, the Canadian Band of The Allied Expeditionary Force, and (not an aria from one of his operas, but the voice of the man himself) Giacomo Puccini, all from the era of wax cylinders and 78s.

Wanna join in the fun? Listen to OlioRadio- your online source for All Eras, All Genres, All the Time.
Love and Peace, Clarence.
