Transistor Radio for the week of November 11-17, 2015

This week on In Store: Selections From Transistor’s Live Performance Archive, host Jon Monteverde has a February 2014 set from Bode Radio. The duo uses elements found in minimalist contemporary music as well as electronic and groove-based compositions.

On Depth of Field, Danielle Echols talks to film blogger Marilyn Ferdinand, who will be presenting the film noir classic “The Prowler” November 21st at Transistor, and to singer-songwriter Elizabeth Bagby, whose new album, “Everything I Think I Know Is Wrong,” comes out Friday the 13th of November. She performs three songs in-store.

In the fifth episode of the White City Cinema Radio Hour, Michael welcomes Chicago-based critic and filmmaker Rob Christopher for a special David Lynch-themed episode. They discuss TWIN PEAKS and MULHOLLAND DR., Lynch’s relationships with collaborators Mark Frost and Barry Gifford, and Lynch’s influence on Christopher’s debut feature film – the 20-years-in-the-making PAUSE OF THE CLOCK. Michael also plugs the premiere Chicago engagement of his feature COOL APOCALYPSE at the Siskel Center on November 21 and 23.

Blame It On The Boogie returns with another vinyl set of disco, funk and soul from DJ Lechstafari, and The Good Music Show’s Scott & Odie are “swiggin’ high-octane fuel while prepping your hearse to take a journey to outer space … or something like that.” In other words, expect plenty of garage, surf/space and psychobilly.

And as always, Andy Miles kicks things off with 15 Songs; this week he has music from Michael Jackson, Purity Ring, Richard Thompson, Feist, and more.

We hope you’ll have a listen.
