1. radiOM.org - Songs of the Omaha Tribe [7.231% Popularity: 0.00000]
Songs of the Omaha Tribe Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 16 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA Laura Reichek of the Alcatraz Solidarity Committee introduces three elderly members of the Omaha Tribe who visited the KPFA studios on November 24, 1970, to record a short program of Omaha songs. The performers are Charles Edwards, Mark Merrick and Rudolph Clark of Macy, Nebraska, who came to Berkeley to help celebrate the first anniversary of the Indian landing of Alcatraz Island. The drum used in these songs is made of a wooden frame covered with cowhide. It weighs about 35 pounds and has a wooden bottom. The sticks used are covered on the hitting end with leather and lamb’s wool on the other end. One single drum was used with two players hitting it from different angles. The drum is usually held from handles on its side by four men while it is being played. In this recording it sat on the floor.

2. radiOM.org - Three Songs for baritone and instruments by Donald Cobb [7.222% Popularity: 0.00000]
Three Songs for baritone and instruments by Donald Cobb Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 7 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA Recorded at a May 1970 concert held at Mills College in California, this is three songs by Donald Cobb with texts by Walt Whitman. The singer is baritone Edgar Jones, accompanied by an unidentified chamber ensemble. Rich, melodic, and lyrical, these three art songs skillfully avoid the pitfalls of shaky vocals and tinkling accompaniment that all too often is the hallmark of 20th century musical settings of poetry. Musical Selections: Three Songs: Sing On, Sing On You Gray-Brown Bird (1:33) ; Allons! The Road Is Before Us (1:47) ; Come Said The Music (2:10), for baritone and instrumental ensemble [text by Walt Whitman] (1970) / Donald Cobb Performers: Edgar Jones, baritone Genres: 20th Century Classical ; Art Songs Subject: 20th century classical ; Art songs ; Songs (Medium voice) with instrumental ensemble People: Cobb, Donald ; Whitman, Walt, 1819-1892 ; Jones, Edga...
3. radiOM.org - Songs of Stephen Foster [7.213% Popularity: 0.00000]
Songs of Stephen Foster Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 59 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA Charles Amirkhanian introduces a selection of songs by one of America’s earliest and most renowned composers, Stephen Foster. Although Foster’s works were widely performed on pianos and pump organs in family parlors throughout America in the 19th century, they are now mostly forgotten in these days of radio and rock stars. These recordings, which include none of the minstrel songs for which Foster is perhaps best known, offer a window into the spiritual yearnings and fervent patriotism of the antebellum period. These recordings which were made using original 19th century instruments from the collection in the Smithsonian Museum, and feature Jan DeGaetani, mezzo-soprano and Leslie Guinn, baritone. Musical Selections: Jeanie With The Light Brown Hair (1854) (3:25) / Stephen Foster -- That's What's The Matter (1862) (2:10) / Stephen Foster -- Ah! May The Red Rose Live Alway! (1850) (5:40) / Stephen F...
4. radiOM.org - Songs of Mahler and his Contemporaries [7.211% Popularity: 0.00000]
Songs of Mahler and his Contemporaries Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 45 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFK A live concert featuring Barbara Patton, soprano, and Natalie Limonick, piano, performing songs by Peter Cornelius, Hugo Wolf, Gustav Mahler, Richard Strauss, and others. While it is not absolutely certain this appears to be a concert of art songs held in March of 1966. Regardless of the exact date, the selection of songs is delightful as are the performances by Patton and Limonick. Any aficionado of 19th century German art songs is sure to enjoy this program. Musical Selections: Der Liebe Lohn (”Love’s Reward”) [from “Brautlieder” (”Bridesongs”)] (1856) / Peter Cornelius -- Erwachen (Am Morgen) (”Morning Prayer”) [from “Brautlieder”] (1856) / Peter Cornelius -- Aus Dem Hohen Liede (”From the Song of Songs”) [from”Brautlieder”] (1856) / Peter Cornelius -- Verborgenheit (”Secrecy”) [text by Eduard Mörike] (ca. 1888) / Hugo Wolf -- Mignon II [text by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe] (1888)...
5. radiOM.org - Ode To Gravity The Environmental Songs of Phyllis Addison [7.211% Popularity: 0.00000]
Ode To Gravity: The Environmental Songs of Phyllis Addison Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 60 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA Charles Amirkhanian talks with composer Phyllis Addison, who introduces a selection of her “environmental songs”. Addison studied at Mills College where she received a BA in composition and environmental science and an MFA in electronic music and recording media. Her background as a classical pianist and a rock keyboardist and singer inform her own pieces. In this program she presents a selection of commercially unavailable songs, composed using the first generation of digital samplers and synthesizers such as the Mirage and Roland JX-10. Her concerns about the environment inspire many of the lyrics and make these songs relevant today despite their distinct 1980s sound. Addison has since spearheaded a movement among musicians to release their music independent of any labels by making use of the Internet. Her album “Seven Gifts” is available on the W...
6. radiOM.org - Music by Josef M. Hauer, Stephen Foster, and other minstrel songs [7.209% Popularity: 0.00000]
Music by Josef M. Hauer, Stephen Foster, and other minstrel songs Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 60 min Event Type: Music A program featuring a composition by Josef Matthias Hauer and a selection of minstrel songs by Stephen Collins Foster and others. While minstrel shows have rightfully come to be regarded with suspicion because of their promotion of racial stereotypes, their obvious co-opting of African American traditions for the entertainment of white audiences, and the enrichment of white composers and performers, the fact is they were very popular in the latter half of the 19th century and remain historically and musically relevant even today. One doesn’t have to support segregation or racism in order to enjoy these standards from the days of traveling medicine shows, as long as one is mindful of the shame of slavery and honors the resilient spirit of those so inflicted, and recognize how they used music as a salve for their souls. Musical Selections: Der Menschen Weg Op. 67 [text by Friedr...
7. radiOM.org - Oakland Museum Concerts Songs Concert [7.205% Popularity: 0.00000]
Oakland Museum Concerts: Songs Concert Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 116 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA This is a recording of a concert of art songs, (and some sound poetry), which was held at the Gallery of California Art of the Oakland Museum on March 19, 1972. Most of these songs were composed by 20th century American composers, some of them well known, such as Ernst Bacon. Lou Harrison, and Henry Cowell, but others perhaps not as well known to mainstream audiences, such as Anne Kish and Barry Taxman, among others. The texts for these songs include poems by such famous authors as Emily Dickinson, James Joyce, and A. E. Housman, but also include settings of ancient Chinese and Japanese poems as well as lesser known contemporary American poetry. The list of performers read like a veritable who’s who of the San Francisco Bay Area New Music scene of the 1970s, and includes vocalists Miriam Abramowitsch, John Duykers, and James Tippey, as well as musicians like Alden Gilchrist, Mike N...
8. radiOM.org - Songs of Hoboes and Riding the Rails by Utah Phillips [7.203% Popularity: 0.00000]
Songs of Hoboes and Riding the Rails by Utah Phillips Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 61 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA Utah Phillips sings songs and tells stories about hoboes and riding the rails. Combining selections from two concerts given by Phillips in the late 1970s, this program features songs by Jimmie Rodgers, the Carter Family, and traditional folk songs, as well as a number of Phillips’ own compositions. Part singer, story teller, union organizer, and political activist, Phillips was as legendary as some of the characters in the stories he told. In the tradition of Woody Guthrie and Pete Seeger, Phillips eulogizes workers, criticizes the rich, and harmonizes about that elusive feeling of freedom one gets riding a train across the American landscape. Musical Selections: The Old Dying Hobo (1:08) -- Mystery of No. 5 (1:27) / Jimmie Rodgers -- We Have Fed You All a Thousand Years (1:53) -- Beans, Bacon, and Gravy (2:07) -- [a poem about Wild Irish Rose wine] (1:04) / Utah Phil...
