The Vintage Underground 19 (Voices Part 1)

The Vintage Underground 14 (Not Everyone Is Dylan: Singer/Songwriters of the Sixties and Seventies) 

Listen to this show:

On today's show, myself and Travis will introduce you to a bunch of rare and less rare songwriters of the 60s/70s period. The guest spot this month was a bit of a debacle so it was filled by myself and several random guests who accompanied me on a couple of old folk songs.

The Vintage Underground 13 (Travis & The Corncob Scarecrow: An Old Bluesish & Countryish Mixed Bag) 

Listen to this show:

There's no strict theme to today's show but most songs are likely to fit into the blues & country genre in some ill-fitting way or another. Expect some super-rare stuff alongside some voices that might be a little more familiar. This month's live guest will be Chilean folk singer Dottore Guzman who will play some beautiful south-American folk and even a Chilean folk song translated into German. To cap the show off, he will sing with one of the show's hosts to see the programme out.

It was quite difficult to put a name to this episode's theme so the best I can describe it is that we will be introducing sixties and seventies folkish music with something of an old world flavour to it and occasional psychedelic punctuation points. Our guests will be the Austrian band "Wanjo Banjo" who will perform familiar folk songs from England and America that have been translated and interpreted in the lower-Austrian dialect before joining one of the hosts for one last number.
