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.

from the Dynamics. C-Dub starts off; the acappella Brazilian jazz of BR6 finishes off.

Notes : Hope Nunnery was the guest on Sunday Street w. Charlie Backfish (9-11:30 am)
“Dry Cleaner” is a Joni Mitchell song. “Don’t Let the Whole World Know” was done in concert, with one of the brothers being louder and harder than usual. “Too Much Stuff” is an Eric Bibb song that Robillard does well. “Patterns In the Sky” is one of Jan Krist’s best performances. Marie Knight was part of a duo with Rosetta Tharpe some 60 years ago; the pairing gave Tharpe several of her biggest hits. Knight’s album is all covers of Gary Davis’ gospel material. If the liner notes are to be believed, Knight never met Davis and didn’t know his songs, even though they were contemporaries, so she comes to the material with fresh eyes.
