2500 DelMonte Street: The Oral History of Tower Records
Was Arthur Moorhead the greatest jazz buyer that ever worked at Tower Records? Stan Goman believes that is the case. Growing up in Arizona, Arthur became a proficient trombone player and obsessed with jazz, movie soundtracks and orchestral music. By his own admission he was almost completely ignorant of pop music, except The Beatles. As a young teenager, his weekends consisted of hopping on a bus with a friend and making the rounds of Arizona record storeslooking for records. Eventually he worked for a local record store called Recordland in Phoenix and Mesa, Arizona.In 1975 Arthur moved to San Francisco to pursue a career as a professional trombone player, as opportunities in Phoenix were few & far between. Needing a day job, he entered Tower Records Columbus & Bay. As luck would have it the current jazz buyer was planning to leave for a job with a catering company. Arthur's interview consisted of Stan Goman and the current jazz buyer interviewing him with very basic jazz questions Arthur aced and he was hired on the spot. For the next five years, Arthur worked at Tower by day and evenings as a trombonist.Through his tenure at Columbus & Bay, Arthur got to know the heads of the record labels and was approached by the US Managing Director of ECM Records which at the time was distributed by Warner Bros. Records, to be the National Sales Manager for ECM based out of New York City. For the next 40 years, Arthur worked in the WEA family of labels spending time with Elektra, Atlantic, Rhino and Nonesuch. At Nonesuch Arthur worked with John Adams, Steve Reich, Johnny Greenwood, Pat Metheny, David Byrne, Wilco, Fleet Foxes, Bill Frisell, Randy Newman and a host of other amazing artists. Arthur was also a producer, executive producer and reissue supervisor on many projects.
If Revolver is the record where The Beatles remove any illusion to their drug use, "She Said She Said" may be one of the cornerstones of that moment. A song with origins from an evening of tripping on LSD in Los Angeles, it's a song that straddles a number of different lines. It rocks, but it's not rocking. It's psychedelic but not trippy. It's autobiographical but filled with illusion. It's probably my favorite guitar tone of all time. It's also a song that's a bit mysterious. Whoever "She" is, what she's saying is confusion. What's it like to be dead? How does she know? Who the hell is playing the bass? Regardless of the answers to these questions, it's just a killer track, and one that really sums up the Revolver ethos, in my humble opinion. Joining us this week is songwriter, singer, guitarist and producer Jon Auer. Jon first made his name in the 90s as a founding member of now-defunct power-pop heroes The Posies, whose albums Dear 23 and Frosting on the Beater landed them all over MTV and alternative radio in the 90s, as well as landing a track on Ringo's Time Takes Time album ("Golden Blunders," originally from Dear 23). He also spent 17 years as member of the reunited legendary Big Star. With surviving founding member Jody Stephens, Jon recently joined Wilco's Pat Sansone, R.E.M.'s Mike Mills, and Chris Stamey of the dBs for a tour celebrating the 50th anniversary of Big Star's debut release, #1 Album. Jon joins us to talk a number of things, including this LSD-soaked Revolver track, who played bass on it, his Ringo & Peter Asher connection, the recent Big Star tour, and more! What do you think?

On this week's show, we... nerd out over the highlights of this year's High Water music festival spend quality time with new records by The New Pornographers & Damien Jurado spin fresh tracks from PJ Harvey, The Gaslight Anthem & Low Cut Connie All this & much, much less! Debts No Honest Man Can Pay is over 2 rock-solid hours of musical eclectica & other noodle stories. The show started in 2003 at WHFR-FM (Dearborn, MI), moved to WGWG-FM (Boiling Springs, NC) in 2006 & Plaza Midwood Community Radio (Charlotte, NC) in 2012, with a brief pit-stop at WLFM-FM (Appleton, WI) in 2004.
The first Record Store Day was held in 2008 to celebrate independent brick-and-mortar music shops. Now in its 16th year, the organization has put together a new list of exclusive releases from Taylor Swift, Wilco, Miles Davis, Brian Eno, Bjork, and many more artists. Cofounders Michael Kurtz and Carrie Colliton join us to talk about this year's Record Store Day, on April 22, and take calls from listeners to shout out their favorite local shops.
Look, if you're not sitting there wondering "who in the hell is Wilco?" then you're old enough to've lived through the press cycle for their Yankee Hotel Foxtrot LP and, for that reason, you always knew to expect this episode. Somehow coasting on twenty-something year old, empty hype, there's every chance this unbelievably and undeservedly overrated band may still come up in conversation at any moment here in the year 2023. So if music fans everywhere are susceptible to being ambushed into offering an opinion on Wilco, then you're damn right we'll dial it all the way back to the beginning and unmake this entire mythology. --- Send in a voice message: https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/show/yfbspod/message
Rock Docs: A Podcast About Music Documentaries A Treble Media Podcast Today's episode is a bonus - an interview with our Very Special Guest, Sam Jones, the director of several films including "Jason Isbell: Running With Our Eyes Closed", "I Am Trying to Break Your Heart", and "Tony Hawk: Until the Wheels Fall Off". Sam was incredibly generous with his time, sharing his insights and stories about the making of classic rock docs (and one of our favorite "rock docs that's not a rock doc"). How did he get Jason Isbell, Amanda Shires, and the members of Wilco to open up about their professional and personal lives? What's it like going into a documentary with no idea what he was going to get? How did he adapt to the unexpected, from Wilco getting dropped by their label to Isbell's record release running into a global pandemic? Thanks to Sam for spending his time with us. Check out all of his work, he's a real one. Hosted by David Lizerbram & Andrew Keatts Twitter: @RockDocsPod Rock Docs is a Treble Media podcast.

https://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2022/07/04/the-gospel-according-to-mavis-staplesMavis Staples has been a gospel singer longer than Elizabeth II has worn the crown. During concerts, sometimes, she might take a seat and rest while someone in her band bangs out a solo for a chorus or two. No one minds. Her stage presence is so unfailingly joyful—her nickname is Bubbles—that you never take your eyes off her. Staples sings from her depths, with low moans and ragged, seductive growls that cut through even the most pious lyric. She is sanctified, not sanctimonious. In her voice, “Help Me Jesus” is as suggestive as “Let's Do It Again.” When she was a girl, singing with her family ensemble, the Staple Singers, churchgoers across the South Side of Chicago would wonder how a contralto so smoky and profound could issue from somebody so young.She is eighty-two. While singers a fraction of her age go to great lengths to preserve their voices, drinking magical potions and warming up with the obsessive care of a gymnast, she doesn't hold back. Time, polyps, and a casual disdain for preservation have conspired to narrow her range and sand down her old shimmer, but she is not about to hum lightly through a rehearsal. A little ginger tea and onward she goes. Singing is what connects her to the world.Sly, sociable, and funny, Staples reminds you of your mother's most reliable and cheerful friend, the one who comes around with good gossip and a strawberry pie. Her cheeks are round and smooth; her hair is done in a copper bob; her resting expression is one of delight. “She is a ray of sunshine,” Bonnie Raitt, her frequent touring companion, said. “She's never cranky. She has an abiding belief in God and His plan and believes the world is moving toward a higher and more loving world.” Staples has spent the past few decades lending her voice to a startling range of collaborators: Prince, Arcade Fire, Nona Hendryx, Ry Cooder, David Byrne. Anyone who has something to say, she'll help them say it, in an inimitable gospel voice. One collaborator, Jeff Tweedy, of Wilco, said, “All day long, Mavis is having a good time. She's excited about making music and just being alive. I hope I have that energy when I'm her age, but the truth is I don't even have it now.”And yet life has its way of wearing down even the most radiant spirit. For two years, during the worst of the pandemic, Staples stayed home in Chicago—she lives in a modern high-rise overlooking Lake Michigan—and was, like just about everyone else in the music business, unable to perform or record. She watched cable news and saw the ravaging effect that covid-19 was having on folks her age. She didn't go out, and she let no one in. For company, she'd pick up her phone and check in with “the Twitter people.” The empty days went on and on. “Oh, man, I hated it,” she said. There was only one thing left to do. “I'd start singing around the house. Mostly our old stuff, the songs we started singing when I was a kid: ‘Didn't It Rain,' ‘Help Me Jesus.' ”The pandemic was the least of it. The passage of time has relentlessly winnowed the comforts of her old life. For decades, she performed in the cocoon of a family that was remarkably warm, loving, and coöperative. Compared with the Jacksons, the Turners, or the Beach Boys, the Staple Singers is a story free of dark drama. But now the other members of Mavis Staples's family—her father, Roebuck; her mother, Oceola; her brother, Pervis; her sisters, Cleotha, Cynthia, and Yvonne—are gone. “It's just me now,” she said. ..
