in Daily Programme, Radio Riel Main

by Elrik Merlin on Wednesday, 24 April, 2013

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.

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.
