#FromtheSoundboard is a show that usually focuses on concerts regardless of genre. Artist and/or group perfecting the art of “call and response” with its audience. On Wednesday, October 15 starting at 3 am, we are in fundraising mode for #WBAI Pacifica Radio. This week we will offer tickets and feature the #SpokFrevoOrquestra.

Historically a folk music associated with Brazilian Carnival of the Pernambuco region, the brilliance of frevo lies in its evolution, influenced by religion, elaborate dance, and varied instrumentation. Saxophonist Inaldo Cavalcante de Albuquerque, also known as “Spok,” is considered a frevo maestro with an adventurous mind. Drawing from the democratic underpinnings of jazz, Spok uses improvisation as an exercise in expressing freedom, taking this music from the streets of Brazil to the international stage. His 17-member orquestra demonstrates both deeply traditional roots and explicit jazz elements [Lincoln Center Press Release]

#FromtheSoundboard is a show that usually focuses on concerts regardless of genre. Artist and/or group perfecting the art of “call and response” with its audience. On Wednesday, August 20 starting at 3 am, we will focus on #Comedy.  We will feature some concerts as a tribute to actor/comedian #RobinWilliams. 

WARNING: Grown folk language will utter throughout the program. No kids in the listening area.

Over the course of his long and distinguished career, Robin Williams won five Grammys, four Golden Globes, two Screen Actors Guild Awards, two Emmys, and an Oscar, not to mention more than $3 billion in lifetime grosses — not bad for a stand-up comedian who became a household name as the star of Mork and Mindy, a Happy Days spinoff sitcom about a goofball alien.
