Ann Savoy

Most of the artists we feature today gravitate around the University of Lafayette in Louisiana. This is a place dedicated for preservation of cajun and zydeco culture in Louisiana, and a place where many musicians happily experiment with their French-spoken heritage. So, today, we feature Corey Ledet with his new record, Louis Michot with his solo record and a gorgeous album with Lost Bayou Ramblers and Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra. Ann Savoy gathered her recording in the last couple of years and had them published by Smithsonian. A bunch of bands from several parishes around Lafayette recorded really fun French versions of classic rock songs, and that’s also scattered around the playlist. Louisiana heritage isn’t just cultivated in one small area of Louisiana, but all around the world. So we check out new music from Joe Le Taxi in Wales, Baton Rouge’s Le Roux covered CCR, The Carnivals joined forces with Becky Lynn Blanca to sing about New Orleans and Robert Finley plays his swamp blues up in the North of Louisiana.

Flashlite #791 – Vinyl Junkyard 19: Džuboks flexies

Džuboks flexies

In our Vinyl Junkyard special series, we feature some old scratchy records, all found somewhere cheap collecting dust in a bargain bin. Today we feature Džuboks flexies. Džuboks was a monthly entertainment magazine focusing on rock and pop music that featured a 6″ flexi record inserted inside in an envelope. There was 16 flexies total between 1967 and 1968. Those were incredibly important in Yugoslavia with circulation cca hundred thousands and each contained contemporary hit from the US and UK rock and pop charts of the moment. They were very well done, fully licensed and they still sound great and most songs are truly some of the greatest written in that period. They were pressed by Jugoton and the publisher used the records to advertise their normal vinyl releases on 7″ and 12″ records. Influence on the local readership and scene in Yugoslavia was immeasurable. To fill up the rest of the hour, I included three greatest Yugo rock originals from that period and I’m closing with two Polish postcard records. My Džuboks flexies are in great condition and my Polish postcards are were heavily damaged. Yet all are extremely charming and I’m playing them directly from the sources.
