Gramophoney Baloney’s Farewell to Chez Poulet – with Erma

August 27, 2012
5:25 am

Today was the final  Gramophoney Baloney from the Radio Valencia studio at Chez Poulet. Lots of Gershwin pieces were played. Erma dropped by with her guitar to talk about some of her projects and play a couple of tunes from her forthcoming debut album. As a way of saying goodbye to the studio space where DJ McSchmormac has spent at least two hours every week over the past ten months doing shows, the last hour of this week’s show was a fantaastic montage of recordings of some of the live performances from the various guests who featured on past shows during that time, created in that very space.

UPDATE!

During the show Terry & Robert mentioned that they’d seen Meredith Axelrod at Atlas Cafe the previous day singing “Come Take A Trip In My Air Ship”, here’s a video of that very same performance both guests were enthusing about: CLICK HERE – with Craig Ventresco on guitar – who features in the soundtracks of two of Terry Zwigoff’s films, “Crumb” & “Ghost World“.
