MP3 & Playlist for Lost & Found, 12/18/06

clucks like us
keeping Chicago locked down
it's all one big racket

Hustle to Survive


Just when it seemed I forgot about you, I'm back on the block with some quality merchandise. Real high-grade goods - and it won't cost you a thing. Just a simple click at the center of Fugi below will start the show, with a sound that will find the mainline straight to your heart...the usual suspects are in line - soulful
psychedelia, acid-tinged funk, deep acoustic balladry, power chord rock and all manner of sounds of the past will put you in a fever - don't be surprised if you wake up on a sheetless bunk in a waterfront flophouse, with no recollections but the songs going around inside your head. Maybe that playlist just a bit further down will help to jar your memory.

better make it just that, pally

check out your mind

Doors of Perception


Your senses are powerful things. Sometimes you can see things clearer with your eyes closed, and sometimes a sound can get your nose open. Today we try to appeal to all your senses, including some you may have never experienced before. Ambitious? Sure, but that's how we do and if you don't know, you better ask somebody. It's more than just a bunch of songs - it's an experience.


Just a click on the lens-flared Leaves below will get things underway - and if you feel yourself floating away, a peek at the playlist below should have you back on solid ground in no time.
Fly on, baby. Fly on.

we gotcha covered
AND YOU KNOW THIS

Give and Take


A rare Wednesday turn for me on L&F, as I set off
a week of fundraising for WMBR, and spend 2 hours begging for
money without an ounce of shame. While it's true I spend the
breaks with my hand out and my mouth open, there is still plenty
of fantastic music over the 2 hours, as much as in every show.

MASSIVE THANKS to everyone who donated to this year's fundraiser, which continues through Tuesday, Nov. 14th - and if you missed the show or this is the first you have heard of all this, all info about the fundraiser can be found and donations can be made by clicking on THIS LINK, where you can also find the list of goodies available as thanks for your pledges.
PLEASE HELP SUPPORT COMMUNITY AND FREEFORM RADIO!!


Okey, I'm done pleading for a year. Now click on the Small Faces below and listen to some soulful, rockin' good music!

over nothin' at all!
hey big boy what's your name?

Deadlier Than the Male


Well, the 10/2 show was lost forever, as the internet stream and archivist hardware were down all day...but I'm back and brimming with energy, a canvas sack filled with over 50 lbs of music over my shoulder, 32oz of hot coffee, and a "greatest hits" selection of noir bites on hand. Things stretch out a bit, as
you get 3 long sets over 2 hours - See, I can just do this stuff whenever the notion strikes me...even if it ain't feas-i-ble.

Just a click on the Frenchman below will get things underway - and simply regardez la liste a little further down for all les d├ętails discographiques you may need.

Back in 2 weeks with a Halloween Cryptacular!
