Clara Engel

Today we experiment with sounds a little bit. Non-conventional genres and artists are on the playlist. We first start with a new project for John Dwyer, Nick Murray, Brad Caulkins, Tom Dolas and Greg Coates, which is perhaps called Witch Egg. Kid Congo and The Pink Monkey Birds follow with a 15 minute dance dreamlike song. Sun Kil Moon is also here with another lengthy new piece. Emma Ruth Rundle teams up with metal heads Thou. Marianne Dissard has an unconventional cover of Ritchie Valens’ Come on Let’s Go. Clara Engel has a new album, and it’s always a surprise and a new, interesting sonic exploration. At the end of the show we pay tributes to Sylvain Sylvain, Phil Spector and Tom Stevens from Long Ryders.

Last year we heard his excellent album Staunch Honey and now he’s back as a part of the band called Astute Palate. Billy Childish is very active recently and we check out his new album with CTFM.

Radio Days

Twenty years ago, on a Saturday morning of January 14th 2001, I walked into KLSU studio and broadcasted the very first Little Lighthouse over the radio. Soon after that, I had an idea to put mp3 recordings of the show on my website and basically created the first podcast in the world (maybe?!). Twenty years later, I still do this weekly, delighting a negligible amount of listeners. And so we go into the 21st year with some new music from Kelley Stoltz, Radio Days, Mark Crozer, Andy Bopp, Guided By Voices, Pushups. But we start with good old Dukes of Stratosphear that inspired all this that I do and we end with a bouquet of Bob Dylan tunes.
