Episode Information
Coleman Hawkins - The Bean Hawk Hosted by Glen and Eddie. In this episode of the Audio Archive we present Coleman Hawkins. This American tenor saxophonist is credited with bringing that instrument to prominence within the wider jazz movement in the 1930's and 40's. A biographer stated that prior to 'The Hawk' saxophones made only 'rubbery belches' and mooing sounds. We play a selection of standards and Hawkins own compositions.

Hosted by Glen and Eddie. This week we showcase a woman who was literally larger than life, Bessie Smith.The most popular blues singer of the 1920's and 30's she was the highest-paid African-American woman of her era.

Hear the voice that set the standard for generations of blues belters, you wont be disappointed.

Episode Information
Hosted by Eddie. I recently hosted a show of old-school 10-inch vinyls, mainly from the jazz age. This time I'm playing a selection of my more modern 10-inch discs. In the first half of the show I play an eclectic selection; The Pirates (Rockabilly), Fall (spiky indy-rock), Lemonheads (not-so spiky indy pop) and the Tempest (brit-pop). In the second part of the show I play a selection of rock covers (Led Zep, AC/DC) as played by 90's hardcore punk acts; Killdozer, Ritual Device, the Hard-ons (featuring Henry Rollins as a guest vocalist). Something a little bit different, you betcha!

Episode Information
Hosted by Glen and Eddie. In this show we feature Ben Webster an American tenor saxophonist. He was noted for his beautiful tone (the beautiful) as well as his irascible nature and heavy drinking (the brute). He worked with many of the greatest jazz artists of his day and spent many of his later years in the Netherlands. His great contribution to jazz was to bring the tenor sax into its own as an instrument for soloing in its own right. Check out an artist that never really got the plaudits that he deserved.

Hosted by Eddie. This show is definitely R-rated. The Butthole Surfers are unique. No-one else approaches their manic intensity. They literally exploded into the early 1980's music scene like a *insert disgusting metaphor here*. I'll just list the discs I'll be playing: Locust Abortion Technician, Psychic Powerless Another Man's Sac, Rembrandt Pussyhorse, Widowermaker, Cream Corn From The Socket Of Davis and Live PCPEP. 'Nuff said.

In the non-jazz selections we have the mighty voice of Paul Robeson, the humour of Tom Lehrer and the sheer exuberance of the Thunderbirds theme. All bought to you through the magic of 10" vinyl!

Episode Information
Hosted by Eddie. This edition of the Audio Archive highlights the contribution to Rock Music made by three women in the late 1970's. You have probably heard of Patti Smith but the other two artists I cover here, Ellen Foley and Genya Ravan, are more obscure. It's great rocking stuff and showcases New York when it was dirty, dangerous and fun.

Episode Information
Hosted by Eddie. In this episode of the Audio Archive we dive into the world of Kid Creole. This American rock band is famous for their theatrical stage show. Led by Kid Creole (August Darnell), the band is accompanied by the Coconuts, a three-piece group of backing singers and dancers. Other characters in the band include Coatimundi and Bongo Eddie. The Kid wears zoot suits and his music invokes Rock, Big Band and Latin beats. We showcase the band in the early to mid 1980's, when they were at the height of their powers.

Erroll Garner - "A Trip To Paris" Hosted by Glen and Eddie. In this episode of the Audio Archive we present the genius pianist Erroll Garner.

Hosted by Eddie. This show features two great bands, in the first half I showcase Ian Dury and the Blockheads and after the break I showcase the Members. Both bands are from the late 1970's Britain and are notable for the diverse styles and other influences that they draw upon. Good tunes and snarky vocals.

Episode Information
Hosted by Glen and Eddie. In this Audio Archive we showcase the virtuoso trumpet of Dizzy Gillespie. One of the most influential jazz musicians, he pioneered both Bebop and the use of Latin rhythms. With artists of this stature the problem is more what to leave out rather than what to include, but we have tried for a mixture of standards and lesser-known numbers.

Episode Information
Hosted by Eddie. This show features the music of Don Van Vliet a.k.a. Captain Beefheart. His work was not widely recognised at the time, but a great many modern musicians have been influenced by it. He ran his band more like a cult than anything else, to the point of renaming many of his band's members with unusual names such as Zoot Horn Rollo and Winged Eel Fingerling. This show will open the doors to some of the most unusual music to come out of California in the Rock era.

Episode Information
Hosted by Glen and Eddie. On this show we are showcasing a man who was undoubtedly one of the greatest jazz musicians who ever lived. Charlie Parker represented both the best and worst of jazz, often at the same time. His musical skill and vision opened new vistas of rhythm and melody, but his life was blighted by addiction and he died tragically young. On this show we play a selection of standards and Parker's own compositions (many of which became jazz standards in their own right). We also have a special treat, an extended jam session featuring Parker with a stellar selection of musicians (Oscar Peterson, Johnny Hodges and others).
