I'm back from vacation with sad tidings: Elaine Stritch, Johnny Winter, Charlie Haden and others have gone on to the After Party, my new metaphor for death. Thinking that they're all having fun at the universe's greatest After Party makes accepting their absence here on planet Earth a bit easier. And here's good news: iconic actor Harry Dean Stanton—still with us at age 88 as I recorded tonight's show on Friday morning—has an album of songs he recorded for the documentary film "Harry Dean Stanton: Partly Fiction." Tonight on "Idiot's Delight"® at 8, I play several tunes from the soundtrack of the same name, and I'll go off on a "Don't Think Twice" musical tangent too.

by Rita Houston

UK newcomer Christian Gregory introduces us to his style of old soul music in his American radio debut appearance. Christian's story is just starting to be told. He's from London, raised in Oxford, and is an interesting combination of artist and record label boss. He started his own indie label in London called Movement Records and brought in old friend and musical like-mind Michael Kiwanuka to help with artist development.

The Newport Folk Festival is next weekend, and FUV is once again headed to Fort Adams State Park with NPR Music to bring you some of the sights and sounds. Our coverage kicks off next Friday, with the opening night performance by Ryan Adams. Although the prolific songwriter has a deep catalog to draw from, we're likely in for a lot of new material as Ryan is set to release a self-titled album on September 9th. Listen in and find out, Friday at 6pm on 90.7FM or online. Then all weekend long, FUV will be at Newport's main Fort Stage, recording performances and posting them to the FUV Vault.
