Coming up in this weekend’s #228th edition of Curved Radio, Gayle speaks with legendary Australian singer, Judy Jacques and will be playing tracks from Judy’s ‘Making Wings’ which was voted the Best Australian Jazz Vocal Album in 2003, and ‘Lighthouse’ the album she performed in the Spiegeltent at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 1997. It will be so great to hear the fabulous Judy on the radio!
We’re also joined by Curvy crewster in Amsterdam, the gorgeous Monica Akihary from the ensemble, Boi Akih who has some more terrific music from Chinese ensemble, MaBang to share with us that she discovered on a recent tour to China.
The divine BillyBoy* joins us from Switzerland to talk to us about his forthcoming memoir, ‘Frocking Life, In Search of Elsa Schiaparelli’ which explores his passion for the iconic designer, Elsa Schiaparelli and how her influence and bohemian spirit has guided much of his life. BillyBoy* also teases us over the radio as only he can with tales about his extraordinary collection of jewels, dolls and object d’art that he curates via his Instagram account. Stunning!
mr.K is back with 3 more tracks from some of our Curved Radio Social Media followers : a blow your socks off sonic-gasm from duo, Annabel (lee) (USA/UK) on Ninja Tunes, a fabulous track from the eagerly awaited new Ducks! (GER/AUS) album, ‘Ding. Ding. Ding’ and from our friends at the Wyall Style label, the stunning debut solo release from songwriter and vocalist, Eilish Gilligan (Oz) who is a member of curvy faves, Melbourne band, Frida. Oh … and he’s also dug into his collection and will playing a couple of Kooky Kuts that are bound to put a smile on your dial and blow a little wind up your Emilio Pucci kaftans!
So, Curvies, are you ready because this weekend, the fabulous Gayle Austin & the Curvy crew are really serving up some Curvy cocktails and are all set to have a Wing Ding Ding!
What will you be having?
