Vin Scelsa describes tonight's "Idiot's Delight"® at 8, as "a this-and-that kind of show." He delves into the forthcoming Conor Oberst album, Upside Down Mountain, due out on May 19, and rounds up more music from Natalie Merchant (pictured), St. Paul & The Broken Bones, John Martyn and a classic old Eddie Harris track from 1972. About the Harris track, Vin says: "It's from Eddie Sings The Blues in which he experimented with a saxophone varitone, like the contraption Peter Frampton used with his voice on 'Show Me The Way.' It doesn't get played all that often in any radio format!"
That's Vin Scelsa's "Idiot's Delight,"® Saturdays from 8-10 p.m. on 90.7FM, also streaming online.
Out enjoying the balmy weather? You can find "Idiot's Delight"® in the FUV archives for two weeks after broadcast.
