This week we begin a two feature focusing on the accordion. Back in those pre-cable days, we had very few TV stations to choose from, so, frequently, all through our neighborhood almost every homes was tuned to The Lawrence Welk Show. We found ourselves exposed to the accordion on that program as well as every wedding reception and ice cream festival I attended as a kid. It was years until I realized how very cool and versatile the accordion is. The next two programs demonstrate the many voices of the accordion as a lead and accompaniment instrument. We’ll hear Maria Kalaniemi, Jimmie Shand, Steve Riley and of course Frankie Yankovic … this week on The Sing Out! Radio Magazine.

#18-20: Stringing Along

When I was younger, I was disappointed when a folk music album included orchestrations behind the player or band. I hadn't given it much of a thought lately but with the release of “When the Day the Day is Done: The Orchestrations of Robert Kirby” on Ace Records I came to the realization that in the right hands orchestral arrangements can be quite lovely. Robert Kirby added string and horn parts to some of my favorite recordings. This week on the Sing Out! Radio Magazine we’ll hear three of those arrangements alongside others with interesting brass or string accompaniment. Orchestrally thinking … this week on The Sing Out! Radio Magazine.

The release of Bettye LaVette’s collection of Bob Dylan songs, Things Have Changed, inspired this week’s show. We’ll play the very first recording on “Blowin' in the Wind,” a take on “Mr. Tambourine Man” by one of the men featured on the cover of his John Wesley Harding album, and a great instrumental by Steve Gadd and the Gadd Gang.

My son’s in-laws recently moved to Wyoming from West Virginia. Becky, his mother-in-law, listens to our program in the gym, and she requested “a cowboy show” so this week’s show is dedicated to Rick and Becky in Cody, Wyoming. We'll hear classic cowboy music from Lead Belly, Powder River Jack and Kitty Lee, Jack Guthrie and many more. The program also includes some more contemporary songs, too ... from Dom Flemons, Kathy Johnson, Jim Kweskin, and, of course, Riders in the Sky. Songs in the Cowboy Way … this week on The Sing Out!

When we think of swing music, visions of big bands from the 1930s and ’40s usually come to mind. Although most of the big bands are gone, the musical style is still very much in vogue. This week we’ll listen to swing, and it's relative boogie woogie, in many settings old and new, including Bob Wills and his Texas Playboys, The Boswell Sisters, Ry Cooder, The Boulder Acoustic Society, and the David Grisman Sextet. It’s swing time … this week on The Sing Out! Radio Magazine. Episode #18-17: Swing Time!

#18-16: Earth Day 2018

In 1969, Earth Day-founder Senator Gaylord Nelson witnessed the massive oil spill in Santa Barbara, California. Inspired by the anti-war movement of the ’60s, he felt that the increased awareness of pollution could bring the subject to the national attention. Earth Day 1970 was created via a rare agreement between both political parties and the disparate views through American society. The movement quickly led to the creation of the Environmental Protection Agency later in the year. Earth Day went global in 1990 mobilizing 200 million people world-wide … though climate change deniers and fossil fuel industry bureaucrats continue to try and derail the movement’s efforts. We’ll listen to a selection of songs about the beauty of the environment and natural world to celebrate Earth Day 2018 … this week on The Sing Out! Radio Magazine.
