The Mormon Tabernacle Choir celebrated Independence Day.
Tuesday's mystery piece was Debussy's fourth prelude from Book I, "Les sons et les parfums tournet dans l'air du soir" (The sounds and fragrances swirl through the evening air), played by Etha Wheeler.
I got a box of old records from a friend recently. Thought I’d share this one. Maybe someone remembers the Passport Lounge?
I'm struck over and over by the power of music to communicate, to get a message through. Not many seem more intent on discovering that power than Richie Havens. Not many seem to go deeper inside themselves in order to send the song out. You can get a sense of that from his performance at Woodstock.
It makes me happy to play what you want to hear. Please leave your request (here or by calling (585)258-0370) and tune in Monday morning from 6-10 a.m. for an all-request show.
