This Tuesday, listen in for two great soul shows – one old, one new – nearly half a century apart, one from a famous small club and the other from one of the world's best known venues.
Down In The Basement will feature a rarely heard 1971 show by Donny Hathaway, recorded at New York York's Bottom Line. Small club ambience for this great soul singer. Then we'll move ahead for an equally rare live show at the Royal Albert Hall in London in late 2012, to hear Mick Hucknall and full band perform the great American R&B Songbook. The former lead singer of Simply Red shows what a great soul singer he is. Lots of familiar and not so familiar soul and R&B classics all live from these two great singers.
Down In The Basement with Paul Conn, with the old and the new, from 8pm on Tuesday night.
A group of nine people visited ArtSound on September 20 for a behind-the-scenes radio station experience with ArtSound presenter, Clinton White. A TEDx Canberra Adventure, "This is Your Radio Show" gave participants a taste of ArtSounds new presenters training course, a look at how promotional announcements are produced, and a session with recording engineer, Tony Hunter, in ArtSounds state-of-the-art recording studio. A highlight was their participation in a "mock" radio show, in which all participants chose and presented music and gave "live reads". The show was recorded and will be made available to participants. One participant, Michael, showed such natural aptitude for radio, he was invited to record the voiceover for a station promotional announcement, which he then helped produce. The announcement will be aired during ArtSounds scheduled programs.
