Since I first heard her, Grace Slick has been among my most favorite vocalists. Her vocal range was astounding, from clear delicate whisper to sustained and soaring cries and made her name virtually synonymous with that of her second band, Jefferson Airplane. Yes, second.
Things are still a little up in the air with today's show. But, there is a very strong possibility that local band Shores of Astor will be coming by the studio to perform for us. And, rumor has it, that a really fun hokum band visiting from The Bay Area, the Sour Mash Hug Band, who will be performing with Saloon Ensemble on Tuesday night at The White Eagle, will come by as well to either perform or help cohost the show. So join Fortunato, Captain Jon, and The All Hearing Ear as we try once again to systematize chaos.
Jaime Leopoldand The Short Stories( Walter Cryderman,Aaron Lowe and bassist Jim Miller) came by the studio to perform a couple of songs off their new CD. Thanks to Just Jeese and Devin for handling the engineering duties on this show.
Through storytelling, classic video footage, and family memorabilia, Kelly Carlin, the only child of iconoclastic comedian George Carlin, chronicles over 40 years of her life with her famous father. A funny, poignant and honest look at the man who not only redefined 20th century comedy, but inspired generations of comedy fans with such classic routines as Hippie Dippie Weatherman, Class Clown, The Seven Dirty Words, A Place for Your Stuff, and Modern Man. Kelly reveals what it was like to be swept up into the life and career of her father from his early days as a straight comic through his transformation into a counter culture hero and iconoclastic social commentator to the very last days of his life.
