Music for a Sunday Midwinter Night
Sunday is a time for reflection. Or maybe it was refraction. I'll have to get back on that. Anyway, Sunday is good for something, I just can't remember. Oh yeah. Jesus. How could I forget? Music! Music for God's sake!
Or maybe it was for God's snake. The mad cow. Denny Crane!
Since you are not privy to my library, let me offer you a reasonable alternative.
It's called Echoes. And was probably named after the Floyd song with the same name.
And no, not Cramer. And not the barber. Except on T-shirts.
In Charlotte, it is on FM 90.7, WFAE. The station that caters to the ejikated classes.
Here are highlights from Echoes' playlist for tonight:
(Ignore that it says it's from Wednesday. They must replay it at night or something.)
-Thomas Newman (composer of the soundtracks for The Player, Jarhead, and American Beauty, among others.)
- R Carlos Nakai and Keola Beamer
- Dean De Benedictis
- Peppino D'Agostino and Stef Burns
- Takashi Kohgo
- Blue Stone
- Anja Lechner and Vasillis Tsabropoulos
- Bombay Dub Orchestra
- Bochum Welt
- Sophie Barker
- Richard Bone
- Harp 46
Granted, not the most memorable of names. But soul-revivifying music, in the main.
Covering Morrocone at the moment...
