Transistor Radio for the week of November 4-November 10, 2015

This week on In Store: Selections From Transistor’s Live Performance Archive, host Jon Monteverde has a May 2014 jazz set from The New Samuel Mösching Trio. The combo plays Mösching’s compositions almost exclusively. His music is strongly influenced by the European classical traditions of polyphonic and modern classical music and the American traditions of blues, jazz and free improvisation.

In the fourth episode of The White City Cinema Radio Hour, Michael welcomes two of the most prominent guests at this year’s Chicago International Film Festival.First, he talks to film critic, filmmaker and New York Film Festival programming director Kent Jones about his new documentary HITCHCOCK/TRUFFAUT. Then he speaks to the legendary Charles Burnett about his long career and the new restoration of TO SLEEP WITH ANGER. Michael also talks up Joseph Losey’s THE PROWLER, a screening of which will be presented at Transistor by critic Marilyn Ferdinand on November 21.

Andrea Garces’ Gems of the Week are a mix of beats, hip-hop, electronic andBlame It On The Boogie returns with another vinyl set of disco, funk and soul from DJ Lechstafari.

At the bottom of the player Charlie Crane’s Stereo Hysteria is back after a couple months away. This time the theme is Easy, with tracks from Sharon Jones, The Decemberists, The Rolling Stones, and more.

We hope you’ll have a listen.
