Fascinating Rhythms

On Mon from 06:30 am EST to 08:30 am EST
With: Kathy G
Ella and Marilyn

 

I’ll be playing lots of soulful, jazzy, bluesy stuff – along with whatever else I think will get you (and me!) up and moving on a Monday morning.

What you’ll hear in the Audio Archive links below:

November 26 – It’s a jazzy morning on Fascinating Rhythms. Start your day with four Kathy G favorites: Spider Saloff, Lizz Wright, Gregory Porter, and Jimmy Scott. 
November 19 – Getting Thanksgiving week off to a great start with songs about thanks, family and friends, and food — from James Brown’s “Mashed Potatoes” and Pokey LaFarge’s “Sweet Potato Blues” to UB40’s “Red Red Wine” and Dolly Parton’s “Family.” 
November 12
– This morning’s Veterans Day show features musicians who served in the Armed Forces. Elvis Presley, Count Basie, John Coltrane, Johnny Hartman, Sammy Davis Jr., Howlin’ Wolf, Harry Belafonte, and many more.
November 5
– I put together today’s Fascinating Rhythms show to remind and encourage you to VOTE tomorrow — and to thank you if you’ve already voted. It’s jazz all morning, with my not-at-all-subliminal message via songs beginning with V, O, T, and E. (More info on how and where to register/vote in Maine at www.lwvme.org)
October 29 – Lots of R&B (Sam Cooke, Al Green, Otis Redding, Betty Harris, Ray Charles, Tina Turner, Aretha Franklin, and Smokey Robinson), a bit of funk (James Brown), plus MILCK’s “Quiet” and Odetta’s “Glory, glory.”
