Show #170--3/1/09

A different kinda mix this week, in that there's more new music than usual in the first hour, from the latest from dance-pop darlings Franz Ferdinand (heard in a new iPod Touch commercial), to jazz with a contemporary beat from the always-fresh musical mind of Dave Douglas...we also hop over to Nigeria with the R&B/Jazz/African pop of Nigerian 'sensation' (well, she is pretty popular over there) Asa (pronounced "AH-sha"). And speaking of "AH," if I remember correctly, Kreviazuk is pronounced krev-ee-AH-chuk...Hour 2 is another one of my parlour game hours, where the host plays with a word (or rather, in this case, a name), and hopes to come up with something coherent and fun to listen to. We go way back in time, to a tune originally written in 1899 (and which one would that be?), quite possibly the furthest back we've ever trolled for a song (though honestly, the performance is from the 1990s, not the 1890s).
