Once Roland (that's meeeee!) gets an idea in his head, it can be very difficult to change to a different idea - - at least, that's what my mother used to tell me. So...in the last couple of weeks, I've become addicted to Something Completely Different shows that feature three musical groups or individuals that somehow fit together - - and, yes, the operant word is "somehow".  

 

This week’s Mountain Stage with Larry Groce features a set from genre-bending jam grass heroes Leftover Salmon, fresh off their busy summer festival touring schedule. You’ll also hear songs from Americana sweetheart Elizabeth Cook, who can be counted on to mix the humorous with the poignant. Cris Jacobs makes his return to the show, earning plenty of new fans in the process. West Virginia fan favorites Quiet make their Mountain Stage debut, and things kick off with the funky creole sounds of the Royal Southern Brotherhood.  

In this week’s encore broadcast, eclectic Americana multi-instrumentalists Lindsay Lou & The Flatbellys make their first visit to eTown’s solar-powered stage to share their forward-looking take on American roots music. Also joining us for the first time is Swedish/Icelandic female folk duo My Bubba who share their sparse and beautiful music, as well as stories about their experiences in circus school and side jobs as locomotive engineers.

As many of you know, I love to pick three musicians or groups that I feel complement each other in some fashion, build a show around them, in which I repeat the trio ten times for a total of thirty songs (or thereabouts). So...it's happening again, friends, this coming Tuesday.

Suzanne M. Lang talks with Thais Nye Derich about her path of self-examination and learning to discover that she, like many other women, was a victim of the medical establishment that denied her the human right of birthing her own child.

I certainly hope you enjoyed last Tuesday's Something Completely Different, "The Glorious Fourth", as much as we enjoyed bringing it to you. In honor of that July 4th extravaganza, we're presenting three more American idols on Tuesday, July 11th.  

Over and over again, I've had to keep presenting Fake Time on these Something Completely Different promos. "Next Tuesday it's the Fourth of July...actually, it's the Second of July. Next Thursday is the Fourth of July, but what that really means..." and stuff like that. Well, every once in a while the stars line up just right, and this Tuesday is REALLY the Fourth of July...every once in a while...like...RIGHT NOW!  

So...not exactly right now...but Tuesday, for sure. And what you'll be experiencing is...  

Our guest this week on Art of the Song is Colorado singer/songwriter Darryl Purpose. After a time studying guitar, he went to Las Vegas as a teenager and began a career as a professional card player. He was soon known as the world’s fastest card counter. Banned from casinos on six continents, he still calls this the “only real job he’s ever had.” In 1996, Darryl began to tour nationally as a solo singer/songwriter. Eight years, six CDs and a thousand shows later, he was headlining the top folk venues and festivals across North America.

Just a few years before he got the internship at NPR that started him in radio, our host Ira Glass had another career. He performed magic at children's birthday parties. A powerful sense of embarrassment has prevented him from ever doing an episode on the subject, but when he learned that producer David Kestenbaum was also a kid conjurer, they decided to dive in together. 

Listen to THIS AMERICAN LIFE with host Ira Glass, every Friday night at 7:00 pm, and repeating every Saturday morning at 9:00 am on KRCB-FM Radio 91!

Phoenix holed up in an old Paris opera house in 2014 to begin recording their new album Ti Amo. The French band turned their feelings of unrest about the tumultuous times around them into music that serves as an escape.
