Great show...

I think my copy of the Jesse Winchester/Brownsville album was a competition prize from Charlie's Sunday am show on Radio London.. I must digitize it.

Another great show that kept me up until the Tabu Ley track. I didn't know Tower of Song until about a month ago when I saw Tom Russell sing it during his recent tour - and it was good to hear Calexico. The Salif Keita story was brilliant!

Thanks for playing all the Stern's releases, Charlie. Our catalogue number for the Mayra Andrade CD is STCD1105. It's officially out in the UK on Monday 24th, just ahead of her concert at the Barbican on Friday 28th, supporting Angelique Kidjo. Some tickets still available. http://www.barbican.org.uk/music/event-detail.asp?ID=6110

From the R3 Messageboard this morning:


"I cannot say how great I thought Charlie Gillett's show was last night (17.09.07). The mix was stunning, I learnt a heck of a lot from what he said and it had almost everything I could have asked for in such a programme. Brilliant!! Absolutely brilliant!"

This was not posted by me btw!

Great to hear Charlie playing almost 2 hours of uninterupted music - no news or travel breaks that used to so interupt BBC London! Lovely mix and when he put on Rhett Brewer I rang him and said "you're on Radio 3 right now!" Not often you get to do that with an artist!

Being an idiot i thought the programme started at 11 so wondered why you were going on about Peter Pan Syndrome!

Do you think it's worth us starting a petition of some sort so suggesting Charlie fills in for Kershaw? I prefer Charlie to Andy as a DJ - Andy's fun but a bit indulgent - but imagine that at some point he will want his job back. But until then, well, no mo' Lucy - we want Charlie!!!!!

I really enjoyed this show. I am fascinated how you draw people in with the first choices, it makes you sit up and wonder what could possibly come next. As it is, it is a very enjoyable spin around the world with little pockets of connections. I think I prefer a sequenced choice like this to a whole album by anybody, the surprises and delights always around the corner keep me listening. And I feel like I've got about half a dozen new artists/cds to check out - this could get expensive!

email from Rhett Brewer:

Dear Charlie,

I hope all is well with you - it's been a while since I was last in touch. I just wanted to write and thank you for playing music from Hotel de Ville over the past week!! I really appreciate your support over the years, and it means a lot to me that you enjoyed the music enough to introduce it to your listeners!

RB trivia...On an amusing note, I thought I should also fill you in on a few details for the record...I actually live here in London (as opposed to France) where I have resided since The Ebbing Wings of Wisdom days.

Also I use the voice generally as an instrument (rather than Latin or another written language).

I am pleased to announce that both Hotel de Ville and now The Ebbing Wings of Wisdom are available on itunes. I will also attach an outline of some recent projects, just so you're up to date on Hotel de Ville and film projects.

On October 9th, I'll be doing a very small performance of some new
material:

October 9, 2007 - 8PM
Padded Cell Cabaret
Inn on the Green
3, thorpe close london W11, london

There's a lot of new music which will be available soon online, including a compilation of music from films, and I will get this to you ASAP.

Take care for now,
Warmest regards
Rhett

Just had a listen to Rhett Brewer's tracks on his Myspace - extraordinary, haunting music. Great to see he cites Cocteau Twins and the underrated Dead Can Dance among his influences. Thanks for alerting me to him, Charlie.

Sorry, but I liked 17 Hippies again.
Kebendo Jazz, & of course Salif Keita. His is the one I will get next!

Yes, I've only heard this song so far, but Rhett Brewer's music is very haunting. I loved Leonard Cohen, too.
I like Calexico & The Mekons.

I was actually in the process of listening to your show while I wrote this, I was happy to hear Youssou N'dour, & thanks for telling me how to pronounce it! I think I'm a real fan of his now.

I got it wrong for a long time, even when I was introducing him on stage. he was much too polite to correct me.

I discovered the trick was to put the n at the end of his first name, with hardly any space between the first and second:

Youssoun Dour

I think in West African words and names with an M in front you do not sound the m at all i.e. the name Mbaye or word mbalax is prounced Baye and balax.

The M is almost silent but not quite. When you press your lips together to make the 'b' sound, you roll them a bit more and get a hint of 'm'.

I like that word 'prounced'. We should keep it, having decided what it must mean.

I once cherished a news story from The Grauniad (where else?). In describing an arrest, it said "...where the police ponced".

Great show, by the way (can't have any thread prouncing). I'm afraid I only lasted until about 00:15 and then fell asleep to Calexico. More please!

There's quite a few I don't know how to pronounce yet.


I finally got one comment from a band on Myspace page, Moussu T e lei Jovents, & I don't know how to pronounce that exactly.
