And… we’re back from our usual Summer break. The break was long, but without huge shakes in musical world. Also, not too many great records happened in the past two months while we were gone. My favorite record this summer is definitely Rainer Ptacek session with Calexico members that came out now, but it was recorded way back in 1997, mere months before Rainer passed away. The cd is called Roll Back The Years, and I really wish I could. We lost a lot when Rainer left 14 years ago. From Austin, we have new records for The Krayolas and John Wesley Coleman. From Memphis, we have new records for Jack Oblivian and Bo-Keys. We also have new Brian Wilson, whose new record is centered around Disney movies.
In other news, we say goodbye to Zagreb’s Radio SC. The “flashlite” edition of The Little Lighthouse, that is, Internet edition recorded in my room, as opposed to being live in real radio studio, started back in 2008 on their initiative. I am thankful for bringing me back out into the public, but last spring I got a note from them that their funds got shortened and that the radio ceased to exist. All the best to their crew in future endeavors. In the mean time, we keep rocking the (un)free world on this website, and also in Kragujevac on Radio Centar and Athens on Rock XS.
