This Island Earth
Sunday June 22nd, 2014 with Rob / PeterB
PeterB co-hosts with Rob Bitschofsky, with world hopping delights and faves, and some surprises too.

PeterB co-hosts today with Rob Bitschofsky. And attempts to not insert his many thumbs into the process of running the board! Plenty of gear shifting, twists and turns, and some personal faves over the ages. Hopefully Rob will insert some randomness as well! Lots of nice long tracks and sets...
Slither (theme)
Anoushka Shankar and Karsh Kale - Breathing Under Water - Manhattan Records 2007
Starting with some throat singing, featuring Inuk artist Tanya Tagaq. Definitely not your Grandmother's throat singing! Tagaq is essentially self-trained, and uses no written music. For an interesting recent interview, check out CBC 1 / Q at:

and also some amazing work with Kronos Quartet at:

Hi PeterB/Rob, Peter--great to hear you behind the mic today! Yes the boards look a little intimidating but it comes in time. I co-host one of CKCU's shows so know that learning curve. As always a great array of world-wide musical surprises on T.I.E.!

Hiya Shelly Ann Morris! Peter's already like an old hand on the controls. He's making fewer mistakes than I do!

Yes I really enjoyed this pared down Rite of Spring :) Really enjoyed the Ravi Shanker-Philip Glass as well. Pretty special show with Nana Vasconcelos' latest album this coming Thursday, feel free to plug it :)

After the fact, but here goes anyhow... For a full play of the UNBELIEVABLY INTENSE Bad Plus rendition of Rite Of Spring, Rob B played the recording of it in its entirety a few weeks back on In A Mellow Tone (Wed May 28, 2014, 21:00, posted via OnDemand): http://cod.ckcufm.com/programs/94/17195.html I simply cannot turn off the rant button on just how amazing that performance was live!! JUST WOW.
