"The Catfish," Saturday, Sept. 8, 8-10 p.m. — The FM feline opens her meow mix once again to find some treats for her fans' aural tastes. This week, accompanying her (un)usual blend of artists and styles, nibble on seasonal fare such as Arlen Roth's "August Nights," The Who's "Summertime Blues," Billy Idol's "Hot in the City" and Janis Joplin's "Summertime" (natch!). For good measure, toss in The Beach Boys and The Ventures … Who says summer has to end?
"Sunday Classics with Charlene," Sunday, Sept. 9, noon-1 p.m. — Charlene's hour with the music and mystique of the great masters will feature Tchaikovsky's Concerto for Violin and Orchestra in D Major as part of this Sunday's program. The work incorporates the melodies, harmonies and character of Russian folk songs in its passionate expression.
"The Doug Lewis Show," Sunday, Sept. 9, 1-3 p.m. — This week Doug celebrates the birthdays of Otis Redding, Dave Stewart of the Eurythmics, Jacob Carey of the Flamingos, Inez Foxx, Billy Preston, and Joe Negroni of Frankie Lyman and the Teenagers. And he remembers Bill Monroe on the fifth anniversary of his death. The show also will mark Grandparents Day with songs by such artists such as Bill Withers, Joe Ely, Lyle Lovett, Richard Shindell and Tish Hinojosa. And Doug takes a look at and a listen to some of the performers appearing this weekend at the Sisters Folk Festival in Sisters, Oregon.
