MacArthur Park: Richard Harris

Definitely a front runner nominee for most overwrought pop song of all time. This live performance is both wonderful, cringe-worthy, awesome, and ridiculous all at the same time.

Arts Express Conversation Classics

We’ve been putting together a fundraising show for WBAI, Arts Express’s parent radio station, so that’s what we’ve been up to in the last few weeks. We dived deep into the Arts Express archives and put together a fantastic flash drive with some classic interviews done by host Prairie Miller as a donation premium. In order to pitch it, we ran a show last night that contained some excerpts from some of those interviews, which you may enjoy listening to. The show contains pieces of interviews with Queen Latifah, RFK Jr., The Rolling Stones, Isabel Allende, and Mike Africa Jr. Click on the triangle or mp3 link above, in order to hear the program as broadcast last night on WBAI FM NYC.

When I’m Sixty Four: The Meetles

Monday morning, meet the Meetles, NYC’s favorite Beatles cover band, on a beautiful day in Central Park at Strawberry Fields, across the street from the Dakota, the building where John and Yoko lived.

Dear Brooklyn,

“Dear Brooklyn,

I love you. Continue to allow everyone to be who they are, to be free, and to be different. Not only should you step outside the box, but make sure to jump on it and kick it until it breaks . Most of all, maintain the love and joy that is in your city walls. You are beautiful just the way you are.

Yours, Anonymous human being

P.S. Please remember to take out the trash!”

Dame Edna

The brilliant Australian comedian Barry Humphries died a few week ago. He was known for the wild characters he created including Sir Les Patterson and Sandy Stone, but his most famous one was the one and only Dame Edna Everidge. Here is Dame Edna on the Michael Parkinson Show.
