A Baroque Festival

Today we present a con­cert of Baroque works from a var­ied range of com­posers includ­ing Bach, Vival­di, Han­del, Rameau, Arne, Boyce and oth­ers, includ­ing per­for­mances of all kinds from solo instru­men­tal­ists to cham­ber groups to full orches­tral ensem­bles.

You’ll hear recorder con­cer­tos from Vival­di, key­board vari­a­tions from Bach, Han­del’s Music for the Roy­al Fire­works and Water Music suites, and works by Boyce includ­ing the Shep­herd’s Lot­tery.

Zee­ber Gold: Abbie Hoff­man

Then join us at 11am or 7pm Pacif­ic Time, 19:00 or 03:00 GMT, for the lat­est in our series of his­toric pro­grammes fea­tur­ing the cul­tur­al movers and shak­ers of the 1960s and ear­ly 1970s in Zee­ber Gold. This week, it’s Abbie Hoff­man. Say ZBS:

We pro­duced this rare album of America’s crazy come­di­an, rev­o­lu­tion­ary and han­ky panky artist [in 1971]. It was record­ed up here at the Zee­ber Farm, in our own stu­dio, Frog­gy Acres. But no record com­pa­ny would touch it. So we fig­ured, what the hell, we’ll put it out on our own label, Big Toe. Orig­i­nal­ly Abbie want­ed to call the label Mafia Records – ‘Cause that’s what most of ‘em are, you know,’ is what he said. It fea­tures Abbie doing his com­ic rou­tines at col­leges in Texas, New York and Cana­da besides up here in our stu­dio. Abbie also sings America’s favorites backed by The Joint Chiefs of Staff. Wait’ll you hear Our Nation­al Anthem, or the clas­sic Cool Water, or the heart tug­ging Ave Maria, or Abbie’s ren­di­tion of Chica­go, and final­ly – God Bless Amer­i­ca. A total­ly out­ra­geous album.”
