KFBK (AM 1530) afternoon host Kitty O'Neill has asked me to come on her show tonight at 6:00 to talk about the new music I've been listening to, as well as Blogging the Grid AND my forthcoming all-music site, still a-fixing, to be called NoisyArtifacts.com. You know the former, you're reading it. But NoisyArtifacts.com will be subtitled "Music For Boomers," and will focus on the music we Boomers grew up with, rooted in the '60s and '70s, but with an ear to new music.
For instance, tonight on KFBK I will be talking about, and playing cuts from, the new Robert Plant/Alison Krauss collaboration, "Raising Sand," as well as the new Springsteen and the two-CD collection of Dylan covers that is the sound track to the new sorta-biopic, "I'm Not There." The latter features everyone from Cat Power and Sufjan Stevens to Eddie Vedder and the Million Dollar Bashers, a house band of sorts that features, among others, such guitarist greats as Tom Verlaine (Television), Lee Renaldo (Sonic Youth), Smokey Hormel (Beck's band) and Nels Cline (Wilco)!
Below is a link to a YouTube promotional video about Robert Plant and Alison Krauss' "Raising Sand." A BIG five stars on this one!
