Today we’re fea­tur­ing songs from the Great Amer­i­can Song­book — with music by writ­ers includ­ing Gersh­win, Berlin, Kern, Carmichael, Porter and many more.

Join us as we take a trip back to recall the Great Amer­i­can Song­writ­ers and their songs — inspired by William Zinsser’s mar­vel­lous book Easy To Remem­ber.

Zee­ber Gold

Then at 11am or 7pm Pacif­ic Time — 19:00 or 03:00 UK time — please join us for the lat­est in our series of clas­sic inter­views with the movers and shak­ers, musi­cians and artists of the 60s and 70s, Zee­ber Gold. Today we hear from Ralph Ortiz. Mr. Ortiz, a leader in the Destruc­tivist Art Move­ment, demon­strates the pow­er of the axe as art, as he hacks to pieces a beau­ti­ful upright piano in an apart­ment in Lon­don. Great sounds as his axe comes down upon the key­board. Two cura­tors from the Tate Muse­um stand by observ­ing and wise­ly com­ment­ing upon the progress of the piece as the chips fly past. This is a very fun­ny pro­gramme. Cer­tain­ly sur­re­al. Record­ed in 1966.


Today’s pro­gramme is pre­sent­ed by Elrik Mer­lin. You can lis­ten to the pro­gramme in-world now at http://main.radioriel.org, or sim­ply click here to start your play­er, if your brows­er is con­fig­ured to do so.
