This week’s show was pre-empted by special coverage of the Riverhead Polish Town Festival, hosted by Matt Mankiewicz and Teresa Zapolska. Teresa was in fine spirits and lots of good friends of the station and of polka stopped by at the fest to see here. A good time was had by all.
The pick on this week’s abbreviated show was some first-rate pop-rock from Ian Moore. Are you listening, radio folks?
The description of the Watch Man in Nunnery’s first verse gives such a strong mental vision…
When left to my own instincts, it’s either Ella or Nat. Here, Ella briefly turns soul singer. Wow.
