The featured album was one out of the vaults - a 1982 vinyl album called  OBADEEA  by the Shetland band  HOM BRU (Celtic Music)  I've been relearning a few tunes from this album and decided to feature it on the show, although it's probably unprocurable these days.  Mostly Shetland tunes, both old and new, and some more recent songs and tunes as well.

16 June 2002

Today's program featured all Australian recordings from Australian based artists, and some were played on Australian made instruments. The featured album was  NEVER AT HOME  by BLACKWOOD  (www.makingmusic.com.au).  This is the second excellent album from a Victorian band who draw their material from various traditions, as well as performing their own and other recent compositions.  Two of the band members are also skilled instrument makers.  The following tracks were scattered through the program:

SESWALU'S KWELA;  THE BENEVOLENT MIDWIFE;  LAND OF BROKEN DREAMS; NEVER AT HOME REELS;  LANDPULSE;  LA BASTRINGUE

9 June 2002

The featured album was  A TIME TO SING!  This is a CD reissue of a recording made in 1984 of a Los Angeles concert featuring  HOLLY NEAR, ARLO GUTHRIE, RONNIE GILBERT & PETE SEEGER, with the title HARP. Originally released on the Redwood label, the reissue from APPLESEED (www.appleseedrec.com) is expanded to two CDs with 13 additional songs.  Uplifting performances from four outstanding artists, but slightly unsettling in the contemporary relevance of many of the songs almost two decades after the recording was made.  We are slow to learn the lessons of the past.   The following tracks were scattered through the program:

OH MARY DON'T YOU WEEP;  SOMOS EL BARCO;  OH MOM;  EMMA;  JACOB'S LADDER;  TAKE BACK THE NIGHT;  THE WATER IS WIDE;  CITY OF NEW ORLEANS

2 June 2002

The featured album was  WHERE THE SKY MEETS THE SEA  by 'well established' Scottish group  THE MCCALMANS  (Greentrax www.greentrax.com ).  With 22 albums since 1964 it is unlikely these lads would surprise us with their choice of material, however I was in the mood for some tight harmony singing and this new CD delivers that in good measure.  The following tracks were scattered through the program:

GALLANT MURRAY;  GALWAY TO GRACELAND;  FARM AUCTION;  RISE RISE;  THE SPINNER'S WEDDING;  RUNNING HOME

The featured album was  A FIG FOR A KISS  by  PROVIDENCE  (Appleseed www.appleseedrec.com )  A fine new album from a Dublin-based quintet presenting Irish traditional tunes and songs, happily, without the speedy high-powered and over produced approach to the music often found elsewhere.  This band demonstrates respect for the material and for those who have passed the tradition down.  The following tracks were scattered through the program:
