Vin Scelsa's "Idiot's Delight" For November 22

by Vin Scelsa
Elaine May, Mike Nichols and Dorothy Loudon in 1959

Might Neil Diamond and Neil Young be separated at birth? One Neil loves sequined blazers while the other prefers flannel shirts (guess which one). However, both Neils have grand new albums just released and tonight on "Idiot's Delight"® at 8, I'll explore both releases. In addition, there seems to be a lot of talented women singing the theme songs for high quality television series; enough for an entire set. I'll also have a musical remembrance for John F. Kennedy on the 51st anniversary of his death and honor the great Mike Nichols via his brilliant improvisational work with Elaine May.

It's been a big year of live music on FUV, with our first-ever live coverage of the Clearwater Festival and a return to Celebrate Brooklyn for three exclusive broadcasts. Add those festivals to an already long list of FUV Live events, including SXSW, Newport Folk Festival, CMJ and shows at venues around New York City, and it's no wonder our WFUV Feastival tradition can't be contained to just Thanksgiving Day.

The Wytches - FUV Live - 2014

When Kristian Bell tested his microphone before our interview he said, "We have assumed control!" Evidently this is his preferred phrase for checking levels because he applauded me as the first person to recognize that he was referencing the Rush album 2112.
