Friday Podcast 8/31/12
Over here in the O’Dark corner of the KUT Public Media Studios, we’re gearing up for the big three-day weekend. Our bags are packed, we’ve got the family truckster all gassed up, and we’re all ready to go except for one key thing: some sweet sounds for the road. Lucky for us that we’ve got this brand-new podcast ready to go.
And lucky for you, too; you’re welcome to download this bad boy and play it on your own weekend road trip. Your journey will start with a new installment of How Sound, the show that gives you a behind-the-scenes glimpse of the radio production game. And hoo boy, this one (“Four Feet Under”) is a doozy. If you’re a fan of uncomfortable silences, you are going to love the heck out of this thing.
Then get ready to spend an hour with John Coltrane, because he’s the focus of a new edition of Views and Brews Remix. KUT’s own Rebecca McInroy hosts the show, along with rabbi and jazz historian Neil Blumofe. Rebecca and Neil will lead a conversation about “Jazz and the Spiritual Journey,” and Blumofe and a great trio (Brannen Temple, drums; William Menefield, piano; Christopher Thomas, bass) will play a little Coltrane for you.
And then, even though that’s plenty of show right there, we’ll keep things going with one more little piece: a new installment of the always-fascinating 99% Invisible.
