Question of the Day: What's Your Second Act?

by Morning Show

Good morning, Paul for Corny on this (ugh) Grindstone Cowboy....

Speaking of which....for Question Of The Day--

What's your Second Act?

Ever quit, change career, move onwards and upwards in a dramatic and unexpected way?!

Name some songs of growth, change...and share a bold move that worked for you.

Four Minutes of Delishious

by Rich Conaty
Deitch Studio

To quote the notes to "The Big Broadcast" Volume 10, ""Delicious," a Fox musical starring Janet Gaynor and Charles Farrell, has the Gershwins' first complete movie score. Only the "Second Rhapsody" (initially "New York Rhapsody, later "Rhapsody in Rivets") has had much of an afterlife.

Tonight at midnight, "The Group Harmony Review" presents a mix from the 1940s through the 1960s and later, including songs by The Nutmegs, The Shadows, The Harptones, Kenny Vance and the Planotones (pictured), Bill Johnson and many more.

UKNY On FUV For November 29

Tonight's UKNY at 11 is devoted to bands and artists bred or based in Manchester. After all, what reflects the mercurial nature of the holiday season better than wistful, witty, bleak, brusque, jubilant, dreamy or wildly danceable songs from one of the great cultural hubs of northern England (and the world)?

Manchester has provided the inspiration for so many groundbreaking groups and scenes, bursting at the seams with iconic figures, that it's impossible to cover even a fraction of the city's diverse artistry. So tonight we'll zigzag from indie legends to Factory Records to Madchester to the latest wave of young artists, so expect tracks from New Order, A Guy Called Gerald and The Smiths as well as recent releases from fresh faces like Money, Plank! and Patterns.

The Bottomless Pit With Marshall Crenshaw For November 29

Tonight's post-Thanksgiving edition of "The Bottomless Pit" at 10 is a straight-up rerun of a show that aired on Dec. 15, 2012. It's a tribute to the good works of Billy Miller and Miriam Linna, outstanding citizens/artists/entrepreneurs, owners and operators of Norton Records and Kicks Publications. They've been having some extra trials and tribulations lately; I'm rerunning this week's show to restate my appreciation for what they do and what they've done.

Musically, we'll hear, of course, Hasil Adkins, The A-Bones, Danny Zella, Gene Vincent, Lou Reed (with The Primitives), Bobby Fuller, Esquerita, Nervous Norvus, and many more great artists that are found on the Norton label and website.
