The fourth week of the 12 week folk-like series covers the letters F-H, with a starting track by Bob Dylan. Ruthann Friedman wrote ‘Windy’, which The Association turned into a classic, but you will hear a lesser-known track from her. This series is so carefully chosen, that to write a summary with less than every artist mentioned feels wrong. Check out Gontiti, an artist I discovered from the biopic about Klaus Nomi ‘The Nomi Song’. Some longtime favorites are in this show: Friends Again, The Go-Betweens, Vic Godard, Gorky’s Zygotic Mynci, Danny Graham, Green On Red, Steve Harley, Robyn Hitchcock, Holsapple & Stamey, but every track is an ace.
