Wreckless Eric Radio Show #31 (click to tune in)

Or right click 'save link as' to download.

The penultimate show of the year, or just The Show Of The Year if you like. I only used penultimate because I've just figured out what it means. The ultimate show of the year or The Ultimate Show Of The Year if you like comes later, hopefully before the New Year. In the meantime enjoy Kilburn & The High Roads, Kevin Ayres, Tropics Of Cancer and a host of other delights.

For the full playlist and detailed go to:

Harry Chapin aside-was that a Kevin Ayers track that crept in somewhere,unannounced?

Wreckless Eric said...

I haven't had chance to put a tracklisting up. But yes, that was Kevin Ayres & The Whole World - the song is called Clarence In Wonderland.

David said...

Wonderful mix of songs. Quite liked the second tune you played from your Dad's record collection as well.

Your description of Harry Chapin's records as "at once preposterous and magnificent" is spot on. I found several on the sidewalk a few months ago. He is absolutely earnest (he was a crusader against world hunger), but also thuddingly literal in his lyrics.

Did you know he wrote a sequel to TAXI that takes up the story of Harry and Sue ten years later? Harry is now a famous folk singer. The song is called, logically enough, SEQUEL.

Also William Shatner did a bizarre version on an American TV show in the 1970s that's floating around in cyberspace somewhere.

»Harry is now a famous folk singer.«

Harry Chapin is now... dead since 30 years.
He was a great singer and songwriter though.

Alright Eric, enough painting and decorating - time for a new radio show...

Hi Eric, to be honest, I love you, your moderation and the music that you play. Being loved by a German bloke you don't even know might scare you to death, but that's not what I want. I want you to continue as long as you are able and willing. It's such a pleasure listening to your show.

Love to Amy!

Cheers, Lightning Buck

Hi Eric,
Really loved your song "whole wide world" . Can I get instrumental for that from somewhere.
