Transmission 10907

The end of the month brings the final letter in our Z to A May, which happens to be the first letter of the English alphabet - A. As I mention in the show, the entire concept and resulting 26 transmissions were creatively challenging and musically rewarding! I hope you enjoyed listening to them as much as much as I did recording them. Today we go to the movies with the first LP in the A section of The Wohlman Music Archives - A Clockwork Orange, get artistic with Art Zoyd, go atomic with Ash Ra Temple, and then end with awesome sounds from The Apples In Stereo, Axecraft and Alice Cooper. Amazing!

Bouncy!

* I mistakenly identified Jett Powers as being from Australia - I do not know where my brain got that info. Jett Powers was an alias for American R & B legend P.J. Proby and lyricist Ray Glbert on the 1958 single "Go, Girl, Go" which we featured in todays transmission and it's B-side "Teenage Quarrel". Class is dismissed!

*The poetic introduction is from the Three Stooges episode All The World's A Stooge.
