Program Notes and Reminders and Some Miscellany

A few brief updates on 3 radio programs---or shall we do it the formal British way--programmes:

TABLETALK: A reminder that the multi-faceted DAVID AMRAM will join the program for the entire time. His conversation promises to be quite scintillating. If you are of a certain age you may recall Alexander King on Jack Paar's program. Well, we have David Amram---lots of strong opinions presented in a great conversational way. In other words a wonderful raconteur. That is scheduled for August 12---8 AM. Rise and Shine.

SUNDAY SIMCHA: My thanks to one of our loyal listeners for some material that it will be wonderful to present to you---as we step together into our personal time capsule to be able to hear early Eddie Cantor material, Cab Calloway with a Yiddish piece, and a lot of other surprises. That is for August 12. 10 A M as always---so as to go with your bagels, lox, and coffee.

This week at 9 A M a prayer for normal transmission will be offered --we will do that privately.

TRADITIONS: While no guests are scheduled we will--as I have done on an annual basis--musically re-visit some of the wonderful artists that have been my guests over the years. While there have been so many --Ronnie Gilbert, Michael Smith, Kim/Reggie Harris, Eric Bogle, Modern Man, and so many more they cannot all be mentioned here. Suffice it to say that I am overwhelmed by their talent and humbled by their appearances on the program.

Many apples have now been polished.

If you have any requests for particular pieces or music from previous guests this Sunday please feel free to e mail at wfdutraditions@yahoo.com


Now for some reminders:

CLAY EALS, DAVID AMRAM, and Many Musicians--BITTER END 2 PM 8/12

This is a book signing for FACING THE MUSIC--STEVE GOODMAN.

No admission charge.

MODERN MAN At THE METROPOLITAN ROOM WED. 8/15 7:30 PM 34 W 22 St. New York, NY

WORK O THE WEAVERS At THE METROPOLITAN ROOM 8/11 5 pm

At MOHONK MOUNTAIN HOUSE New Paltz, NY

The various clubs and coffeehouses will resume their schedules in September.

As to the miscellany it is a pleasure to have met so many of our loyal listeners at the MODERN MAN program at Lincoln Center Out of Doors. I have to thank one of our listeners for some great thoughts and CDs for the SUNDAY SIMCHA program.

The show was, as it always is, truly clever and full of great musicianship. The turn out on this day--the day after ARLO GUTHRIE appeared at that venue-- was impressive. The weather could not have been better and MODERN MAN, as I always say, are Equal Opportunity Skewerers of all ethnicitys, laws, and the human condition.

Put that on your bumper sticker and smoke it.

ONE FINAL THING BEFORE THE TRIVIA QUERY--CLICK ON THE ALMOST DAILY ROOSTER ON THE RIGHT SIDE. You will find that that a laugh a day keeps the doctor away---not that damned old apple. Be surprised and also know that this page, while it is to keep you informed of programs, events, and all such monumental events The Almost Daily Rooster tries for topicality and alleged humor. We have something new there for you. Topical and clever. And we have to separate comedic talent for fear of emotional entanglements. Modern Man rules here as you know.

After all my very personal friend of long standing Will Shakespeare has a lot to say about the soul of wit. Turns out he did not age as well as I---he is long gone.




NOW--a trivia question for a randomly selected CD. Can you tell, approximately, when this picture was taken and what radio person this might be? Two CDs available---first 2 correct answers mailed to: wfdutraditions@yahoo.com get them. Make sure you include a mailing address.

I think the picture is of little Bill Hahn in 1938. Cute as a button.
