Paul Ingles hosts The Beatles in America - 1964 and takes listeners back to when The Beatles and America first got to know one another. This lively hour long montage features rarely heard archival audio, concert recordings, and new interviews with fans and reporters who were swept into The Beatles frenzy. Some of the recordings featured in this program haven't been played publicly in 40 years. They are available here because of Larry Kane and Art Schreiber, two reporters who made almost every stop of The Beatle's 1964 tour and had remarkable access to the band. Their interviews capture the boys' wonder, humor, and thoughtful analysis of the madness that was swirling around them and enveloping the nation. Ingles talks with historians and authors whose enthusiasm and excitement also reflects that phenomenal time.</p><p> Mon, 17 Feb 2014 00:00:00 +0000 39982 at http://redriverradio.org The Beatles In America - 1964 Miles Davis: Bitches Brew http://redriverradio.org/post/miles-davis-bitches-brew <p><strong>Airs Tuesday, February 11 at 9 p.m. &nbsp;</strong><span style="line-height: 1.5;">One hour special follows the creation and influence of Miles Davis' heaviest album.&nbsp;Interviews include Bitches Brew band members Lenny White, Benny Maupin, John McLaughlin, Harvey Brooks and more.&nbsp; Music also features the rare live recordings from the deluxe editions.</span></p><p> Wed, 12 Feb 2014 03:00:00 +0000 40058 at http://redriverradio.org Miles Davis: Bitches Brew The Mandela Tapes http://redriverradio.org/post/mandela-tapes <div><strong><span style="line-height: 1.5;">Airs S</span>unday<span style="line-height: 1.5;">, December 8 at 6 p.m.&nbsp;</span></strong><span style="line-height: 1.5;">In this special program, you'll hear Nelson Mandela as you've never heard him before. This program draws on 50 hours of recorded conversations with Mandela, held for many years in&nbsp;</span><span style="line-height: 1.5;">Johannesburg by archivists at the Nelson Mandela Centre of Memory. The man chosen to record Mandela's life story was Rick </span>Stengel<span style="line-height: 1.5;">, a young reporter working in South Africa for&nbsp;</span><span style="line-height: 1.5;">Rolling Stone magazine. From 1992 to 1996, </span>Stengel<span style="line-height: 1.5;"> shadowed Mandela, using his small cassette machine to record the stories which would help in the writing of Mandela's autobiography,&nbsp;</span><span style="line-height: 1.5;">'Long Walk to Freedom'. The program features extensive interviews with journalists and with Mandela himself, recounting growing up and his political activities, imprisonment and then&nbsp;</span><span style="line-height: 1.5;">ascent into the leadership of South Africa. The two other key voices in the documentary are the current managing editor of Time Magazine Rick </span>Stengel<span style="line-height: 1.5;"> and freelance radio producer Robin&nbsp;</span>Benger<span style="line-height: 1.5;">. </span>CBC<span style="line-height: 1.5;"> Radio was the first radio network anywhere in the world to be given full access to these remarkable recordings.</span></div><p> Mon, 09 Dec 2013 00:00:00 +0000 37129 at http://redriverradio.org The Mandela Tapes Red River Radio Spotlight: Highland Holiday Tour of Historic Homes http://redriverradio.org/post/red-river-radio-spotlight-highland-holiday-tour-historic-homes <p><strong>Bill Beckett </strong>was joined by <strong>Teresa Edgerton</strong> and <strong>Tina Kendrick</strong>, both with the <strong>Highland Restoration Association</strong>, to talk about this year's <strong>Highlands Holiday Tour of Historic Homes</strong>, which takes place Saturday, December 7 from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m., and Sunday, December 8 from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. For more information about this event and homes to be toured contact the <strong><a href="http://restorehighland.org/" target="_blank">Highland Restoration Association</a></strong> online or call <strong>318-572-9037</strong>.</p><p> Thu, 05 Dec 2013 18:00:00 +0000 Bill Beckett 37040 at http://redriverradio.org Red River Radio Spotlight: Highland Holiday Tour of Historic Homes
