Ring in the New Year with British Blues, Groucho Marx, and Jules Verne on the next Dave White Presents!
On Tuesday, Jan. 3, Kim Simmonds of Savoy Brown joins Wes Britton to talk about the British blues revival of the 1960s and 70s and his legendary band, Savoy Brown. Back then, the hard-driving group issued popular albums like STREET CORNER TALKING and RAW SIENNA and had fm hits like Tell Mama. (Did you know the group Foghat was formed by 3 former Savoy Brown players?) Now, Savoy Brown is celebrating their 45th anniversary with a hot new CD, VOODOO MOON. Yep, well play a sample.
Next, Dave White visits with Steve Stoliar, author of RAISED EYEBROWSMY YEARS INSIDE GROUCHOS HOUSE. Stoliar was Groucho Marxs personal secretary and archivist during the show business icons final years. He got to spend quality time with, among others, Zeppo, Gummo, Mae West, George Burns, Bob Hope, Jack Lemmon, SJ Perelman, and Steve Allen. The book earned rave reviews when it first came out over a decade agoits new, expanded edition is earning even more praise from insiders and fans!
TWENTY THOUSAND LEAGUES UNDER THE SEA. JOURNEY TO THE CENTER OF THE EARTH. AROUND THE WORLD IN 80 DAYS. THE MYSTERIOUS ISLAND. These are the most famous novels by French author Jules Verne. But the imaginative creator of Captain Nemo spun a much wider canon of work including plays and short stories, much of which was never translated into English. Until now.
On the next DWP, Brian Taves, editor of a new series from the North American Jules Verne Society, shares the inside story into what readers can enjoy now due to an international effort to finally make the adventure writers full body of work available to the public. Did you know the novels you read as a child were dramatically altered by various editors and likely not the translation Verne intended? Whats going to happen in the new MYSTERIOUS ISLAND movie? Expect to be surprised--
All this comes your way on Tues. Jan. 3 at 7:30 p.m. Eastern, then 7:30 Pacific over--
On Wed. Jan. 4, the 90 minutes of variety entertainment will become available as a podcast, mp3 download, from itunes and through TEVO, or on the player at--
