Unpopular Music

Saturday 12PM-2PM

Fred has been describing this program as “freeform”, but says it’s been skewing towards jazz with some contemporary classical and not-often-played-on-the-radio pop music.

He’s played people like Steve Lacy, Thelonious Monk, Art Ensemble of Chicago, Miles Davis, Sun Ra and Lee Konitz; newer jazz like Bill Frisell, the Bad Plus,Tim Berne, Vijay Iyer and Dave Douglas; contemporary classical from people like Bang on a Can, So Percussion and Kyle Gann; older composers like Charles Ives, John Cage and Igor Stravinsky; pop music like Harry Nillson, Carbon/Silicon and Deerhoof and people who fall in the cracks like Ennio Morricone, Iva Bittova and Frank Zappa; and bits of world music and early music , too.
