Vin Scelsa weaves an unpredicatable tapestry on tonight's "Idiot's Delight"® at 8, following the city lights lead of Emily Barker and The Red Clay Halo.
Inspired by Emily's lyrics, Vin finds himself on a journey that takes him to Richard and Linda Thompson, seaside songs, Laura Cantrell, river fires, Randy Newman and even odes to a particular Midwestern state.
Tonight on Vin Scelsa's "Idiot's Delight"® at 8, Vin offers up a harmonious Everly Brothers Saturday with songs and covers inspired by brothers Don and Phil, including selections from the new collection of duets from Billy Joe Armstrong and Norah Jones.
Vin also pulls albums from Townes Van Zandt, The Low Anthem, Tom Waits and other favorites from the Studio V shelves.
Vin Scelsa is totally charmed by Lucy Wainwright Roche's beautiful new album, There's A Last Time For Everything. Tonight on "Idiot's Delight"® at 8, Vin will spend some time with Lucy's second collection of songs, released in October and the followup to her 2010 debut, Lucy.
At 8 tonight on "Idiot's Delight"®, Vin Scelsa finds himself in another fine mess — as inspired by Have Gun, Will Travel's swaggering new song and, of course, Stan Laurel, Oliver Hardy and Waiting For Godot's Vladimir and Estragon. Vin also dives into Hurray for the Riff Raff's latest album of covers, My Dearest Darkest Neighbor, and Dean Wareham's recently released EP, Emancipated Hearts.
At 8 tonight on "Idiot's Delight"®, Vin Scelsa continues to reflect on the music of Lou Reed and the Velvet Underground. In addition, Vin takes a wander around Studio V and pulls out albums from The McIntosh County Shouters, Belle and Sebastian, Victoria Williams, Louis Armstrong and FUV's own Marshall Crenshaw.
