Episode Information
Hosted by Eddie. This edition of the Audio Archive highlights the contribution to Rock Music made by three women in the late 1970's. You have probably heard of Patti Smith but the other two artists I cover here, Ellen Foley and Genya Ravan, are more obscure. It's great rocking stuff and showcases New York when it was dirty, dangerous and fun.

Episode Information
Hosted by Eddie. In this show I present a diverse selection of recently acquired music, covering a wide range of different genres. From classic TV Theme tunes (Sweeny, Star Trek) to great guitarists (Roy Buchanan, Al Caiola), a bit of pop (Carol Bayer Sager), a bit of country (Mac Davis) and all the way out to some light jazz fusion (Mandrill). I close the show with the classic Paul Hardcastle song Nineteen. Something for everyone here!

Episode Information
Hosted by Eddie. In this episode of the Audio Archive we dive into the world of Kid Creole. This American rock band is famous for their theatrical stage show. Led by Kid Creole (August Darnell), the band is accompanied by the Coconuts, a three-piece group of backing singers and dancers. Other characters in the band include Coatimundi and Bongo Eddie. The Kid wears zoot suits and his music invokes Rock, Big Band and Latin beats. We showcase the band in the early to mid 1980's, when they were at the height of their powers.

Erroll Garner - "A Trip To Paris" Hosted by Glen and Eddie. In this episode of the Audio Archive we present the genius pianist Erroll Garner.

He bridges the gap between Fats Waller and later virtuosos such as Art Tatum, Oscar Peterson and Bud Powell. We play a selection of classic jazz numbers, including a 'trip to Paris.'

Episode Information
Hosted by Glen and Eddie. In this Audio Archive we showcase the virtuoso trumpet of Dizzy Gillespie. One of the most influential jazz musicians, he pioneered both Bebop and the use of Latin rhythms. With artists of this stature the problem is more what to leave out rather than what to include, but we have tried for a mixture of standards and lesser-known numbers.

Episode Information
Hosted by Eddie. This show features the music of Don Van Vliet a.k.a. Captain Beefheart. His work was not widely recognised at the time, but a great many modern musicians have been influenced by it. He ran his band more like a cult than anything else, to the point of renaming many of his band's members with unusual names such as Zoot Horn Rollo and Winged Eel Fingerling. This show will open the doors to some of the most unusual music to come out of California in the Rock era.

Episode Information
Hosted by Glen and Eddie. On this show we are showcasing a man who was undoubtedly one of the greatest jazz musicians who ever lived. Charlie Parker represented both the best and worst of jazz, often at the same time. His musical skill and vision opened new vistas of rhythm and melody, but his life was blighted by addiction and he died tragically young. On this show we play a selection of standards and Parker's own compositions (many of which became jazz standards in their own right). We also have a special treat, an extended jam session featuring Parker with a stellar selection of musicians (Oscar Peterson, Johnny Hodges and others).
