"Wondering Where The Lion's At?" (Podcast Title)

WILD- email told me this referred to World International Lions' Day...

Along with Pan Am live music, while missing tonight's Alejandro Escovedo show, I played forbears Pete, Sheila and Coke Escovedo, and hot sounds from Colombia, Brazil, Peru, Jamaica, and from the Mexican- American Escovedos...

Talked a little about election coverage, last Saturday's Tanya Tagaq and Roots shows at City Hall, the Scarbourough Afro Carib Fest Aug 23rd-24th, this week's upcoming free shows, as well as...

The wild boar shot and killed by Caledon OPP for the crime of being a wild animal lost in suburbia...

Summer Sequels- Mike Duffy Trial is back

Pickering people angry at neighbours little kids for making noise in family pool

Harper won't visit Toronto-the - City, just 905-land... All over 905, actually, but no 416... All 905 and no 416 should be somebody's local election campaign slogan!

Meanwhile, in urbane, cosmopolitan Toronto... Residents in downtown summer hotspots - people who bought their condos near places like Harbourfront- are now mad that people continue to enjoy events at Harbourfront, as they had before them, and, one hopes, forever onward...

Also, lobsters are suddenly taking off in China- or, more accurately,lobsters hauled in to Halifax are being flown en masse to Shanhai...

And... Bugs! Beer's new best friend? Apparently, scientists have recently learned various bugs produce unique yeasts that can flavour beer...

And once more... The Humane Society somehow have my email, and they told me National Geographic got involved to try and make, establish, or continue, this day, August 10th, to be WILD- World International Lions' Day- RIP Cecil

Tracks-
Los Quinchimali- from a CBC Radio transcription disc, on half a side, is this band of "new Canadians" playing Andean music, according to the liner notes...
I talked over a bit of it... Tracks were -> Fiesta, Ya Yan Quinchu, Rondador, Veranito
Jane Bunnett w. Cuban Piano Masters- Recorded Toronto 1993- Como Fue
Aline Morales- Musa,
Lenis Reno and his Canadian Band - live at Lula- opening
Samba Squad- Baba Fururu

All Canadian until here... Off to Colombia with...

Bwana- la Jurumba,
Pete and Sheila Escovedo- Azteca Mozambique
Coke Escovedo- Wouldn't Change A Thing
Traffic Sound- Suavecito- my favourite Peruvian band
El Chicano- One More Night, Juntos
Black Sugar- Don't You Worry About A Thing- another hot Peruvian band

From jumping around the new world, sonically, we're off to celebrate WILD- For the Lions, including Cecil, who, even in cold, dry, financial terms, was worth more alive than dead...
Originally, I was gonna play songs for, by or about other zoo animals but time kept moving on...

Simon and Garfunkel- At the Zoo
Bruce Cockburn- Wondering Where the Lions Are
Big Black- Lion
Solomon Linda- Mbube 1939 rendition of this classic, I have talked on the air before about the history of this song, so I kept it brief tonight, and continued...

Ras Michael and the Sons of Negus- Rise Jah Jah Children- a very dread, deep roots take on this song... I payed Miriam Makeba's powerful version not so long ago, so I kept it to these two renditions, letting Ras Michael lead the charge/ forward march to reggae, with-

Ras Lee- Who Killed the Lion- he is referring to Bob Marley, but it still fits...
Kidd Rasta and the Peace,Akers- Walk Like Lion Talk Like Lamb - also local
Bushman and band- Man a Lion- live, Opera House 2000, DB Hawkes tape
I Roy- Natty Dread the Lion
Rocky Dawuni- not a lion song, but this African reggae singer will be at Harbourfront this weekend, while I am doing other stuff in New Brunswick....

Bob Marley and the Wailers- Lion Of Judah- Kingston Peace Concert 1978

"Holy (4 day!) Week!" (Podcast Title)

Here's to Holy-4-day-Week, for Christians, working stiffs and anyone else...

I wanted to do a gospel history theme for a little while, as I haven't done one in a long time... Black History Month seemed like a good time, but other ideas kept coming like popcorn, so now let's enjoy some thumping, smoking gospel sounds and find out a thing or two about gospel music, it's relationship to established hymns, and such...

I also talked about Thomas Andrew "Georgia Tom" Dorsey, Chicago's Pilgrim Baptist Church, Black Nova Scotian history, and more...

As usual, things started off with a few Canadian selections including a Bob Burchill album with, uh, religious over-and-undertones, which I just picked up and a surprising jam from Measha Brueggergosman on a Jesus tip.

Tonight we heard...

Neil Young - Everybody Knows... / Winterlong- live in Cincinnati '70 from l.p.

"Ontario Family Day International Black History Month" (Podcast Title)

Black History Month continues... With some background on the dance/ church/ social scene in Southwestern Ontario, as I have been checking out the book Breaking Loose, about historic Black communities of southwestern Ontario, at the end of the Underground Railroad.

For Family Day, that is today's legal holiday in Ontario, the rest of the music played will be from family relations, because, tonight, we are...

Keepin' it in the family...

Also, I put out some background on the Black Canadian Vinyl Rarity, Floyd Lawson and the Hearts of Stone - Comin Out, an extremely rare album I learned about after checking out the dodgy Canadian Racer comp... this is some Ottawa area funk via Philadelphia and Motown... I found a copy of the reissue, itself a rarity already with only 500 copies pressed, with Floyd's cooperation and consent on the Afrokat label.

Also, thought I'd mention Claudette Colvin's mostly forgotten role in the Civil Rights struggle...

And in more old civil rights cases in the news again, seven of nine men convicted of trespassing for sitting at a whites-only counter in Alabama 1961, they were exonerated a week or three ago...

TRAX -

Lettuce w. Nigel Hall- Do it Like You Do- playing T.O. This week-
Floyd Lawson and the Hearts of Stone- the second side of their second album,
Feat. Oil in the Ground, Love Won't Let me Wait, Rated X, Air That I Breathe, Only Takes A Minute
Billy Martin and his Orch. - Side two of his Round Midnight album, mostly background while I talked, until Comin' Home
Dianne Brooks- To Make You Happy, Memories- the latter I talked over-

The rest of tonight's show features acts which include blood relations - I.e. no married couples performing for the purpose of tonight's Family Day thang...

Staples Singers- Freedom Highway- live Fillmore West 68
Robert Randolph and the Family Band - BillieJean- live Phoenix '04
Sly and the Family Stone- Colour Me True- live Fillmore East 68
Sunday's Child- Feelin Good

The Meters- Fiyo on the Bayou - live Metarie LA 1/77 - need anyone be reminded of the Nevilles?

"String Theories" (Podcast Title)
Strings, Violin vs Fiddle. A brief nod to St Paddy's to start things off witha Pogues connection-

Well, it seemed high time I salute the fiddle, and maybe contrast it with violins and string Sections in soul music, particularly in Memphis and Detroit, as Motown and Stax really injected some of the most influential soulful string parts in popular music... Just my opinion, which I attempt to explain in tonight's edition of Veritable Infusion.
