Thursday Night we were at The Coach House for the dazzling fretwork of the California Guitar Trio. The California Guitar consists of Paul Richards, Bert Lams and Hideyo Moriva they met at a 1987 Guitar Craft course in which Robert Fripp (formerly of King Crimson) instructed them in the New Standard Tuning (NST) After completing several of Fripp's Guitar Craft courses the trio toured as part of Robert Fripp & The League of Crafty Guitarists. I'd been anxious to see them perform since I first heard them over 10 years ago. They did not disappoint and completed a 90 minute set that included a nice balance of covers and original material. Particularly enthralling was their rendition of Pink Floyd's "Echoes".
"Whole 'Nuther Thing" with host Bob Goodman Fridays at 9 am & 3 pm ET!!
Bob Goodman is a NYC native living in Southern California. He started his broadcast career during the Golden Age of FM and continues to share his passion for great tunes with Whole ‘Nuther Thing as his vehicle..
I was born to share my passion and knowledge of music and spin records. I’ve had 2 distinct broadcasting careers with a 20 year break in between. I've been a student of Radio Broadcasting since I was old enough to carry around a Transistor Radio in my pocket and often went to sleep with an earphone stuck in one of my ears decades before Ipods made it fashionable. My on air career started with the Campus Radio Station of Hunter College in NYC where I was elected General Manager and later the Coordinating Director of Network Programming and co- founder of the City University Radio Network. My professional career began on the East End of Long Island, NY at WRCN AM & FM where I eventually became Music Director. I then moved to California with a stop doing overnights at KSRF FM in Santa Monica. Eventually I moved back to Long Island and worked at WLIX AM in Islip. My last on air gig before taking a break was with The Quadfather WYSP FM in Philadelphia, I did weekend mornings. I left because the consultants were slowly removing any artistic freedom we had picking our own music and sharing it with our audience.
Approximately 11 years ago I made a decision to return to my first love, at least on a part time basis, Radio. Being a listener of the local college Radio Station KSBR FM, I enrolled in Saddleback College in Mission Viejo and proceeded to take some Communications and Broadcast related courses with the intent of earning an air shift on the station. In January 2001 I was given my first air shift on KSBR on Friday evenings from 6 till 9PM. I eventually moved to Saturdays and started the concept of "Whole 'Nuther Thing", essentially a mosaic of music without any boundaries and the only criteria being it must be good. With my knowledge of and passion for music of all genres, it was easy for me to put together music from disparate artists and blend them into cohesive and flowing sets. Unlike my first career, I now have the luxury of painting from a palette of 75 plus years. If you have a favorite "Lost Song" there is a good chance you will hear it during Whole ‘Nuther Thing. If not, then contact me and I will get it on for you. As Duke Ellington once remarked “There’s Only 2 Kinds of Music, Good Music and Bad Music” I prefer the former.
My Special In Studio Guest Laurence Juber, recently named Fingerstyle Guitar Player of The Year by fans of Fingerstyle Guitar Magazine. Laurence was the Lead Guitist for Paul McCartney's Wings 1978 - 1981.
He's also played with and produced Al Stewart among others.
Laurence played quite a few tunes from his latest CD Release "Wooden Horses" as well as tunes from his other 15 CD's. One Listener remarked he was like "Leo Kotke on Steroids". After the appearance on Whole 'Nuther Thing he performed as the showcase artist for the Lord of Strings Concert series in Mission Viejo. He was even better the second time around in his "native surroundings".
Laurence plays with such passion for each individual tune.
Sorry for the poor photography, new camera.
After the performance, Bob and Laurence outside the studio.
John Batdorf made a return appearance to Whole 'Nuther Thing and brought with him long time collaborator, Bill Batstone to add Bass and Background Vocals. John played quite a few tunes from his latest CD release Old Man Dreamin' as wellas quite a few from All Wood & Stones. Bill added a few of his own compositions. It was a splendid afternoon of great tunes and playing. Thanks to KSBR's own Gary Bergerson for setting up the sound mix, it was excellent. Visit the My Pod page to listen to the entire Broadcast.
