Options June 13, 2016: Surrealism was the Battlehorse, with special guest Pau Riba!
Barcelonan songwriter & poet Pau Riba is known as the Father of Catalan Rock - he was singing in Catalan when it was illegal; his 1970 debut LP "Dioptria" is a legendary piece of European psych-folk, with echoes of Brazilians Raul Seixas and Os Mutantes and Brits Roy Harper and Incredible String Band meeting pure homespun Catalan Surrealism; and yet he's almost completely unknown in the US. Following an appearance with Cyborg Neil Harbisson at the annual Moogfest, Pau made his 1st ever NYC appearance at Baby's Alright on May 29. His performance today marks his US radio debut.

Deja vu. That you, Joe McGasko?
Avatar Mon. 6/13/16 3:04pm Todd-o-phonic:

Great start! I'm surprised someone like Joe McGasko has never thought of doing a set of versions of "Then He Kissed Me". It would be a great idea.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 6/13/16 3:05pm Cliff (moving to Prague!):

"he was singing in Catalan when it was illegal" - today's show looks like it'll be a real good one!

Oooh, that's a great idea Todd! Lemme see if I can catch him before he bolts....

Funnyman Joe McGasko replaces every 50th CD on the premises with "Then He Kissed Me." So one was bound to appear sooner or later.

I remember seeing Aaliyah in Romeo Must Die, and then hearing about her death within a year - I couldn't believe it, she was so young.

I know. It's the damn NRA. Don't understand why congress ever repealed the Brady Act.

Now I'll shut up and enjoy the music.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 6/13/16 3:51pm Parq:

It's bad enough for someone like me, seeing the country go off the rails like this during what is popularly called the autumn of my life. I can scarcely imagine what it's like to have been born near or after the turn of the century and never to have known a US that *wasn't* marked by this sort of regular occurrence.

I've been looking up info on Dodge City, Kansas, and trying to figure out why everyone wants to get the hell outta there. I guess because they kept saying it on Gunsmoke?
Avatar Mon. 6/13/16 4:29pm geezerette:

Oh Pau Riba is GREAT!!!
(Now if I could get some pasta...)
Avatar Mon. 6/13/16 4:32pm geezerette:

During those early years, Dodge City acquired its infamous stamp of lawlessness and gun-slinging. There was no local law enforcement and the military at Ft. Dodge had no jurisdiction over the town. Buffalo hunters, railroad workers, drifters and soldiers scrapped and fought, leading to the shootings where men died with their boots on. And that created a hasty need for a local burial place - Boot Hill Cemetery. It was used until 1878. For six years before Boot Hill, Dodge City had no official cemetery. Persons dying who had friends, money or standing in the community were buried in the post cemetery at Fort Dodge. Others, penniless or unknown, were buried where it was convenient to dig a hole.
