Now and Then AT HOME: Vulnerability and Inspiration - Billie Eilish, Daniel Johnston, Joni Mitchell
Original air date May 1, 2021 | Time 58:00
Vulnerability and authenticity are the most desirable traits for a singer-songwriter. Billie Eilish Billie Eilish swept the Grammys in 2019 when she was only 17 years old. She is releasing her second album on July 30, 2021 but I can play you the first single from it "Your Power". The Austin musician Daniel Johnston began his music making at home on his boom box and handed out free cassettes on the street. When Kurt Cobain wore a t-shirt to a music award ceremony featuring the artwork of Daniel Johnston he launched his career. I end the program with songs from the impressive catalog of Joni Mitchell. She describes her interior world with lyricism and depth. She is my favorite singer-songwriter and I have learned many of her songs and guitar techniques. At the very end of the program I offer you an original song of my own "Sleeping Outside". Check it out every Sat at 3pm "Now and Then" on https://WJFFRadio.org or 90.5fm Radio Catskill.

Back Into the World - Relationships. It's time to get back out into the world and figure out relationships again, with people outside of your house! and beyond the grocery store! Are we ready? Today's program includes Pink's "Love Me Anyway". Also a cover of "At My Worst" by BTS - Jungkook. Both these songs are asking to be taken for who you are, the best and the worst. We hear from BTS later singing a song by Ed Sheeran. One of our talented local singer-songwriters weighs in with his song "Slingshot" by Shlomo Franklin. The energy goes back and forth between two people like a slingshot, what a great visual image, what an infectious song. Ed Sheeran got married to his childhood sweetheart in 2020 and they had a daughter. That's why his song "Afterglow" is so beautiful. But on Now and Then we reach back to the beginnings when Ed wasn't so balanced emotionally in his song "Bloodstream", listen to them back to back and see his growth. There's nothing like R&B from England to Korea, but nothing quite like Al Green. He is called "The Last of the Great Soul Singers" and received the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award. "Let's Stay Together" explains what it means to be committed to a relationship. McCartney III - Album Release in Dec 2020 and shows us that age doesn't change emotions, they are still mysterious in "Deep Deep Feeling". We end the program on a positive note from Buckingham McVie, Lindsey Buckingham and Christine McVie. Tune in Saturdays 3pm or in the archive anytime! Now and Then AT HOME https://www.wjffradio.org or in your car on 90.5fm Jeffersonville, NY.
