Magic Whistle Radio Hour 23

Things I've collected over the years or acquired on mixtapes and comps or gathered from the internet or the library or my parents' attic. I make no claims to "discovering" or "owning" anything. Most likely neither do you. It's whatever I feel like playing that week. Things that may or may not be familiar. Who knows. Sort of a musical companion to all the magazines and comics I post here regularly. I do a new one of these every week with no repetition. You can right click this for a zip file with an mp3 of this show if you don't want to listen to the above now. You can also get the last show and the one before that and the one before that etcetera etcetera by clicking this and scrolling down, each post also having the choice of listening to it now or saving it for later.

Here's the playlist and links to information on the musicians and songs when I could find it. Feel free to fill me in if you have information I don't:

Not too long ago she entered a contest sponsored by the New Waves Radio (WAYS, Charlotte). On the panel for judges of the contest was Mercury A & R director Shelby Singleton, so that in addition to winning the contest, Diane was signed to a Mercury recording contract. Since release of her first single, she has been on a promotion tour. Recently Diane traveled to Nashville to do further recording.” -Billboard
