Each set of music takes on it's own personality and evolves in it's own unique way during a typical broadcast on TRANSMUSIC AIRWAVES and this week during Episode #292 all that effort brings forth another extremely satisfying result.

The program begins with a piece from the latest work by the current incarnation of the SOFT MACHINE, then follows a Canterbury trail to a recently unearthed early MATCHING MOLE cut, traveling next to a 'dub' inspired track along the 'silk road' with the band BANCO DE GAIA, then on to early GONG (recorded in Paris) before landing in Cleveland circa 1972 with DRAGONWYCK. Following those artists, ROBERT PLANT embarks on a journey's along side an ethereal 'Middle Eastern' riff and MARTY STUART & HIS FABULOUS SUPERLATIVES head to the desert to reprise his psychedelic saga 'Way Out West.' (and that all happens during the first thirty minutes today folks).

Other selections on tap include more new music from MARC RIBOT, ECHO & THE BUNNYMEN, THE RICK & MORTY SOUNDTRACK, JOE STRUMMER, and SPIRITUALIZED, a song or two from local bands GLENN LAZEAR and BENNY LAVA, and plenty of 'vault' rarities from DYZAN and early GENESIS to the 13TH FLOOR ELEVATORS. There's even a short lesson on 'Basic Hip' lingo by DEL CLOSE from the Rhino Records 'Beat Generation' anthology. Cool Baby, cool! It's a total gas today!

Welcome to the 7th annual 'Halloween Special' on TRANSMUSIC AIRWAVES (Episode #291). This year's program has plenty of local flair with music from HARVEY GOLD, EXTRA SPOOKY, and CHRIS BUTLER & RALPH CARNEY'S appropriate gem “Day of The Dead (October 31)' all included as part of the program.

This time the show centers on the music rather than movie dialogue or themes and there's plenty of relatable songs from the likes of LOU REED ('Halloween Parade'), RAY DAVIES (“March of the Zombies'), SPIKE JONES (“My Old Flame'), DANNY ELFMAN (“Beetlejuice: Main & End titles'), and FRANK ZAPPA ('Zomby Woof').

For the jazz aficionado you'll hear the LOUNGE LIZARDS, punk enthusiasts can howl along to the DEAD KENNEDYS and THE CRAMPS, while loyal prog fans can delight at the sounds of GENTLE GIANT, CURVED AIR, PEARLS BEFORE SWINE, and CAPTAIN BEYOND. As always I'll spin NEW releases, this time from ALEJANDRO ESCOVADO, SOFT MACHINE, JOE STRUMMER, and GARY NUMAN and I'll add plenty of other Halloween 'treats' to this years bag of musical candy with enough to satisfy even the gloomiest of spirits.

You know it's going to be a good day when JOE STRUMMER gets things started and that's the case today on TRANSMUSIC AIRWAVES (Episode #290). I'll begin this program with the cut 'Generations' from the Strummer foundation's latest archive release of rarities, 'Joe Strummer 001,' then add NEW material from DEVOTCHKA, PAUL WELLER, and YONATAN GAT to the first set as well as some vintage JEAN LUC PONTY, BO HANSSON, and NY rockers PARQUET COURTS.

Stylistically, today's show is another wonderful mishmash of musical diversity featuring a hearty blend of 'covers' from YO YO MA (JS Bach), HAMPTON STRING QUARTET (The Beach Boys), THE TUFTS BEELZEBUB (doing an a cappella version of a Beatles tune), MODERN STUDIES (The Kinks), LAURENCE JUBER (Henry Mancini), and SPONGE (The 'Speed Racer' theme), mixed in with plenty of Prog, Folk, World, Electronic, and Jazz.

As always there's NEW releases played and this week I've included songs from ALEJANDRO ESCOVEDO, OUMOU SANGARE, GLENN LAZEAR, PAUL SIMON, and MOGWAI. From the 'vault' you'll hear music by THE FLYING LIZARDS, KALEIDOSCOPE, SOFT MACHINE, and TAJ MAHAL.

On the latest edition of TRANSMUSIC AIRWAVES (Episode #289) we'll mosey 'Way Out West' during the shows first set with songs surrounding two distinct versions of JIM PEPPER'S 'Witchi Tai To' (from JAN GARBAREK and BREWER & SHIPLEY), then later on go off the rails with my rant about 'robocalls', and end up, in the words of WAS (NOT WAS), 'feeling better than James Brown.' (You'll hear that song too!)

MARTY STUART & HIS FABULOUS SUPERLATIVES gets it all started with the song 'Way Out West' followed by RICKIE LEE JONES doing 'Flying Cowboys,' then JAN GARBAREK, ROBBIE ROBERTSON, NEIL YOUNG, more this week from THE BYRDS, and finally BREWER & SHIPLEY finishes the first half hour.

During the third set I'll play songs from HENRY THREADGILL, HENRY COW, TONTO'S EXPANDING HEADBAND, and WHITE NOISE which all get mixed in with DEVOTCHKA'S latest, RON GEESIN, and PIERRE BOULEZ conducting FRANK ZAPPA.

There's also more today from the new GLENN LAZEAR album and the latest from the JOE STRUMMER archive, BAD DUDES, YONATAN GAT, and COWBOY JUNKIES releases, and other 'worldly' cuts from MOREY KANTE and BRIGITTE FONTAINE. Hopefully all the great music and my little rant will make you feel better as well.

This week on the latest installment of TRANSMUSIC AIRWAVES (Episode #287) I'll begin with DEAN & BRITTA playing 'Knives From Batavia' from their homage to Andy Warhol's screen tests, follow that piece with NICO'S 'Lawns of Dawn' from The Marble Index, morph into two pieces from JOE BYRD'S legendary psychedelic masterpiece UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, and complete the set with THE CHIEFTAINS, a LES BAXTER 'ultra lounge' standard, PETER GABRIEL'S 'German' version of 'San Jacinto,' and a piece from German proggers SPROINGG.

That all sets the stage for the remainder of the program which includes a set surrounding and interwoven with THE BEATLES 'Revolution 9' with other similar songs from GONG, THE PRETENDERS, THE PINEAPPLE THIEF, PARASITES OF THE WESTERN WORLD, and PETER HAMMILL'S 'The Future Now.'

There's more new material from CHRIS BUTLER & RALPH CARNEY, OH SEES, BRIAN ENO & TOM ROGERSON, and ERNIE KRIVDA. 'Vault' selections include 'Slush' by the BONZO DOG BAND, 'Set Your Controls for the Heart of the Sun' by PINK FLOYD, THE CHAMPS rendition of 'Tequila,' an early TASVALLAN PRESIDENTII piece and plenty of jazz, world beat, folk, and electronic to keep it interesting.

It's time for more unusual 'covers' on today's TRANSMUSIC AIRWAVES (Episode #286) and I've gathered several selections from MOJO magazine's eclectic series to play during today's show beginning with THE MAGNETIC NORTH'S interpretation of a song from the Beach Boys 'Pet Sounds' album and JIM WHITE'S somewhat bizarre take on The Beatles 'All Together Now' both during the first set. XIU XIU does 'Audrey's Dance' (an Angelo Badalamenti 'Twin Peaks' standard) during that set as well.

Later on ROBERT WYATT will 'cover' Ivor Cutler's 'Go And Sit Upon The Grass,' HAYSEED DIXIE plays 'War Pigs' bluegrass style, TAJ MAHAL exquisitely stylizes 'Honky Tonk Women,' and another Beatles song ('Love To You') gets treatment by SUKILOVE from a MOJO 'Revolver Reloaded' CD.

Plus there's more 'vault' finds from THE CRAMPS, PASSPORT ('Ostinato'), WIGWAM, and 50's soul pioneers THE MOONGLOWS. New releases include THE PINEAPPLE THIEF, COWBOY JUNKIES, and a Thelonious Monk composition done by MIHO HAZAMA & THE METROPOLE ORKEST BIG BAND. (Yup! Another cover!)
