The Strange Story Of The Man Behind 'Strange Fruit' : NPR

...It's been a while since my last post and while I try to stay away from politics, given recent events, the time of year, and the fact that all of us here are Billie Holiday fans, this seems like a good thing to share.



The Strange Story Of The Man Behind 'Strange Fruit' : NPR: "One of Billie Holiday's most iconic songs is "Strange Fruit," a haunting protest against the inhumanity of racism. Many people know that the man who wrote the song was inspired by a photograph of a lynching. But they might not realize that he's also tied to another watershed moment in America's history."

Happy Halloween Scoundrels and Scoundrellettes!! Thanks for a Great Weekend!..And the best Animal Costume....

At midnight PST we reverted back to our regular programming after a very enjoyable and successful Halloween Weekend.
By listening hours, we had our second best single day, and our best weekend yet.
Thanks for the love and support!
Just like in Halloweentown, we are already planning for the next one. We welcome support and suggestions for next year. I would especially like to ask for suggestions regarding music to honor Dia de los Muertes for next year. Drop us an email or tweet if any ideas come to mind.
I stayed in on Friday to keep an eye on things to avoid last year's tech glitches, but I was able to enjoy some of my neighbors' fun and a few beers.
As the station grows, so do our plans and we ar hoping to make things even better and more fun in the years to come.
ENJOY!
Cheers, C.





p.s. ..as always, we miss you,  Kat.

Halloween Stuff and this Beautiful New Track ....Pretty Dagger- By Sarah Borrello by Sarah Borrello on SoundCloud - Hear the world’s sounds

Rolling some more Halloween tracks into the playlist leading-up to the big show next Friday!
As always, requests are welcome! They don't have to be Halloween songs, but any song with a creepy theme or just a good fun party song.
I finally got the new Wand album into the "Featured Artist" queue so you'll be hearing it work it's way in in the next day or so...a really excellent rekkid so I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.


So, we (we being Ms. Borrello's fans) got this free track because she got 1,000 likes for her new Facebook page and I am uploading it as soon as this post goes out, so it will be popping up in the playlist probably on Saturday.
If you can't wait? Click the link below and download it for yourself.
I can't say I am surprised at how she is growing and maturing, she works hard and has soul to go with her ton of talent. For those of you who haven't been paying attention to my falling all over myself about her, I personally feel the sky is the limit for this woman.
I just feel it in my gut.
I think she can do what she wants and write her own ticket...but I don't care what she does she is going to do it as a true artist.
