American Tales

Wednesday, December 28, 2011

Listen to some American tales on this New Sounds program.  We’ll hear the mesmerizing 11-minute reflection, “Another Day In America” as delivered through Fenway Bergamot, Laurie Anderson's wise and witty “Voice of Authority” alter-ego and more of her musical and lyrical medititations on America in the 21st century, from her recent "Homeland."

Listener Poll Show for 2010

Thursday, January 06, 2011

Here's the rebuttal to last night’s program where the listeners weigh in on the best new music releases of 2010. First off, a big thank you to all of the listeners who voted! We found that there were some hard-fought battles this year between well-waged Facebook (and other social media) campaigns and other organized mailing list calls-to-action. However, we have a clear front-runner, with some unexpected and predictable results.  The voting closed at noon today.  Tonight's 25th annual New Sounds Listener Poll show will contain the music that emerged victorious from this year's contest.
