Art Of The Song 7:00 am
My Darling Clementine

this week on Art of the Song we visit with My Darling Clementine, a husband and wife alt country duo from the UK. With harmonies reminiscent of Gram Parsons & Emmylou Harris, George Jones & Tammy Wynette, as well as Dolly Parton & Porter Waggoner, Lou Dalgleish and Michael Weston King embody the essence of the classic male-female country duet. Michael Weston King?s connection with country music has been well documented over the past 20 years, beginning with his days as a founding father of the British Alt. Country scene with his band, The Good Sons in the 1990?s. Lou Dalgleish, a fine singer-songwriter in her own right, began her career as a dancer and actor. We had the pleasure of visiting with My Darling Clementine in our Albuquerque home studio

American Routes 12:00 pm
Creole Eyes and Classical Ears: Van Dyke Parks & Tom McDermott

conversation with, and music from, Van Dyke Parks, an eclectic, popular classicist known as a composer and keyboardist, arranger and producer, with a great love of calypso and Hawaiian cowboy music. The man behind the curtain for so many artists, the Hollywood-based Parks is well-regarded for writing and studio work with Brian Wilson and the Beach Boys, Ry Cooder, Lowell George and Randy Newman, among many others. He recently became a fan of pianist Tom McDermott, a St. Louis-born, New Orleans-dwelling and Brazilian-influenced vernacular virtuoso. Parks thought enough of McDermott's recorded repertoire to collect and reissue some of it as Bamboula -- so-named for the composition by the mutually-admired New Orleans 19th century pianist Louis Moreau Gottschalk. Tom McDermott, also a fan of Scott Joplin, Jelly Roll Morton, Professor Longhair and James Booker, plays in his parlor for us.
