kthread spins: music to greet the morning
As the title warns, this podcast is bright; best to squint into it until the mellower middle.
We begin with Dent May and His Magnificent Ukulele, someone I really need to play in the garden around the Magic Cottage when I open the front door in the morning. He should be surrounded by the Muppet frog chorus (Robin and friends) in the pond, like when Linda Ronstadt sang “Blue Bayou” on the Muppet Show. Actually, that’s a much better idea, she should cover this song. With the frog chorus.
I’ve also included a Neko Case with an incredible title (that may become my new bio line) next to a Nina Simone, a cover of Sigur Ros (who does that?), and three ending songs since the first is trendy and the second makes me cry. Safe and splendid travels into your day wher’er you are in the wide, wide world—
