Artist Track Comments
Big Guitars from Texas  Chainsaw   Options I almost never play this one-- and it skipped... 
Big Guitars from Texas  Bulldoggin' Boogie   Options ...so back to one of the regular theme tunes. 
John McLaughlin  Don't Let the Dragon Eat Your Mother   Options Should I use this to name the show? Psychedelic jazz guitar for Halloween. 
Robert Palmer  Parade of the Obliterators   Options Thanks to KBC for this one! 
Roky Erickson & the Nervebreakers  I Walked with a Headhunter   Options He says zombie but the cover says different. Either way it's crazy texas rock & roll, recorded live in Dallas 1979. 
Screamin' Jay Hawkins  Little Demon   Options This is from his 1991 album-- "Cow Fingers & Mosquito Pie"-- on Epic/Legacy. A man for the season. 
Willie Dixon  I Ain't Superstitious   Options Not sure when this one was written-- the CD was (re)issued in 1993-- but this guy is amazing. I saw him before he died; he was a class act. No Wolf but wrote the best blues ever. 
Howlin' Wolf  Evil   Options This version is from a 2-record album ("Chester Burnett aka Howlin' Wolf") on Chess-- every song is killer. And he wrote this one, not Willie Dixon. 
The Psychedelic Aliens  Blogonyobi Wo Atale   Options Evil R&R from Ghana, from the 70s. 
 
Music behind DJ:
Psychedelic Aliens 
Hijacking   Options  
Sam Sacks  That Old Black Magic   Options Terrible, just terrible. But charmingly so. 
Spike Jones  That Old Black Magic   Options Okay, I've been hanging out with KBC too much! 
Esquivel  That Old Black Magic   Options Just one more. I promise. I know, I should talk over this but you have to admit, it's classy lounge schmaltz. 
Stan Freberg  St. George and the Dragon   Options The devil made me do it. 
Lee "Scratch" Perry  Scary Politicians   Options How appropriate-- not Halloween, Election Day. Scary politicians. New CD: "Revelation' (MEGW, 2010) 
Manu Chao  Politik Kills   Options From his 2007 CD: "La Radiolina" 
 
Music behind DJ:
Stan Getz 
Witchdoctor   Options  
Moise & Alida Viator  Wangateur (Fortune Teller)   Options When this was recorded, about 10 years ago, Moise was in college (Pre-Med at LSU) and his sister Alida, the fiddle player, was in high school. 
Wynton Marsalis   Billy Goat Stomp   Options Whatever else you may think of him, few work as hard to keep that old rootsy jazz alive as he does. From "My Jelly Lord"-- tribute to Jelly Roll Morton-- w/ Eric Lewis on piano. 
Jerry Lee Lewis  Halleluiah I Love Her So   Options I have this on a vinyl double album on Pickwick. 
Ozomatli w/ David Hidalgo  Aqui No Sera   Options A rare ballad from these L.A. rockers. Muy dulce! 
Sandy Nelson  Happenings Ten Years Time Ago   Options This jazz drummer did some interesting things with R&R songs, like this Yardbirds classic. 
Chubby Checker w/ Dee Dee Sharp  Slow Twistin'   Options From a strange album Chubby produced-- and sometimes sings on-- with a band called Texas Radio. Seriously mediocre, although this one is cool. 
Gregorz Z Ciechowa  Piejo Kury Piejo   Options I guess this is a traditional Polish number, although it sound fresh and new. 
La Primitifs du Futur  C'est la Goutte L'Or qui fait deborder la Valse   Options A great album of French/Gypsy w/ Dominque Cravic, Robert Crumb, Fay Lovsky and more. From 1999, on Harmonia Mundi 
Fay Lovsky & la Bande Dessinee  Funny Bizniz   Options All the CDs we have from her are from the late 1990s; anyone know if she is still making music? 
The Ting Tings  That's Not My Name   Options What is this? Who played this? Eugene? Stacey? You can call me Al. 
Tom Ze  O Ceu Desabou   Options It says on the CD that this tune was "inspired by 'The Persians' by Aeschylus." Wonderful new stuff on Luaka Bop: "Estudando A Bossa: Nordeste Plaza" (2010) 
 
Music behind DJ:
Either/Orchestra 
Latin Dimensions   Options  
Bukka White  Baby Please Don't Go   Options  
The Modern Lovers (w/ Jonathon Richman)  Roadrunner   Options I've been a DJ on this station since the early 80s and I don't think I ever played this! It's about time. 
Cornershop  Brimful of Asha   Options Great rock tribute to Bollywood star Asha Bhosle, 
 
Music behind DJ:
Asha Bhosle

Hey Steve! Great to hear you.
  Sun. 10/31/10 5:22pm steve krinsky:

Hi Jack, Hi All. I'm trying to avoid the holiday pressures but hard to resist.
  Sun. 10/31/10 5:36pm Chip:

Raced home so I could tune in.
  Sun. 10/31/10 5:37pm mario c:

Jay aint screaming no mo
  Sun. 10/31/10 5:47pm Chip:

Is KBC in the studio with you? You're not usually this clever on your own.
  Sun. 10/31/10 5:49pm moltonboron:

'maiden devouring license revoked'
  Sun. 10/31/10 6:07pm fred:

I've been conflicted about Manu Chao for a while, but now I think he's cool. I don't like all of his stuff, but he indirectly taught me a lot, I met a bunch of his high school classmates over the years. They probably looked down on him at the time, now they brag about the connection. Scary thing is I wouldn't have been any better.
  Sun. 10/31/10 6:13pm steve krinsky:

Hey, Fred, I'm curious about your thoughts. Say more-- either here or email me at stevek@wfmu.org. He did a great job producing Amadou & Miriam CD; I'd love to see him live.
  Sun. 10/31/10 6:22pm Tentley Bebinef:

This one ain't half bad. Where's the rest of your playlist, amigo?
  Sun. 10/31/10 6:28pm steve krinsky:

I useta know an old hippie with that name back in the 60s but he can't get there from here anymore.
  Sun. 10/31/10 6:28pm fred:

Hey Steve, I now realize how wrong my comment went. But it's right too. I'm french and oldish and have been hanging out in several scenes over the years. But I was not part of the original Sevres/Mano Negra scene.I have to make that clear. I'll get to you later, for what it's worth, which isn't much
  Sun. 10/31/10 6:34pm Tentley Bebinef:

Now you're talking!
  Sun. 10/31/10 6:38pm Tentley Bebinef:

Actually I know the Ting Tings aren't your usual playlist, but I love how this song builds. I saw them live in Boston (all 2 of them) and even an old 60's hippie like me was on the floor writhing in ecstasy. Or we were on ecstasy. Can't remember much anymore.
  Sun. 10/31/10 6:56pm Chip:

I'm liking this. Keep it up!
  Sun. 10/31/10 6:58pm Kevin:

Steve,
It seems like Manu Chao has performed every summer in NYC for the last 10 years!
He usually plays the park stages in Manhattan and Brooklyn.

I also enjoy the Amadou & Miriam album

I know many of my friends in Barcelona have had mixed experiences with MC as a person, I have enjoyed Mano Negra and MC music for some time.

I also kick myself for not going to see him perform in Chiapas Mexico in 2000. He showed up at this tiny bar and played all night
