The Banana Man

Monday, October 4th, 2010


Today after I aired my Banana Megamix on KOOP Radio a caller rang me up and told me about “The Banana Man” who used to appear regularly on Ed Sullivan (before my time). I’ve come to find out via the Banana Man tribute site that the Ed Sullivan Banana Man (the same one who once appeared on Captain Kangaroo) was a second generation version of the original. No matter – if weirdness was his goal, he was getting it done. Like Bert once told Ernie, I don’t know if I’m emotionally secure enough for this sort of entertainment.

“The Folk Bazaar” debuts tomorrow on KOOP

Sunday, November 2nd, 2008

My new radio show’s called “The Folk Bazaar,” and starting tomorrow it will air every Wednesday at 3, featuring internationally-oriented folk music, psychedelic/acid/weird/neo folk and folk rock, solo instrumental folk, inventive singer-songwriters, exotic medinas, heads in clouds, and imaginations running wild. The Serbian group above, S vremena na vreme (From Time to Time), is right in the pocket (the song’s called “Strange Tree” from 1973). If you’re in Austin, spin the dial counter-clockwise to 91.7 FM. If you’re listening on the web, catch a live stream at the KOOP website (click “listen now” at top left). [Update 2/14: A few months after its debut I changed the show name to “The International Folk Bazaar.” It now airs every Thursday at 11 am CST on KOOP
