The Camille Conte Show #610 6-26-2020 Willie Nile Interview

The New Music Spotlight takes over the show today with my interview with the great Willie Nile and his new album, "New York at Night." We cover a lot including the news about "Willie Nile Uncovered," a 2 cd tribute album coming out in August featuring Dan Bern, Nils Lofgren, James Maddock and a slew of other performers tipping their hat to Willie's songs. Along with the new tunes, The Backstreet Slide, Doors of Paradise and New York at Night, Willie talks about his 48 year love affair with New York City, what it's been like during the COVID lockdown, how respect for his fans (though he prefers friends) delayed his online concerts and how a can of Redi Whip inspired the new album's title track! This is so good.

Thank you so much Willie! Look for Willie's next live concert on July 9th.

CC continues her verbal dissertation on Bob Dylan, whose new album, "Rough and Rowdy Ways" is officially released today. This, his 39th album on the heels of his 79th birthday keep this Nobel Prize recipient exactly where he's been all this time: in the history books. Speaking of history, Juneteenth teaches us more about this country's history and how the train of freedom is currently stopped at the station of justice. The New Music Spotlight offers us a really great summer song, Hang On from the band, NEEDTOBREATHE. And a very happy 78th birthday to Sir Paul McCartney. So glad he's still with us and still rockin' out! Enjoy.

The Camille Conte Show #607 6-5-2020

I use the music and my voice to share what's been on my mind and in my heart since last week's murder of George Floyd and all that has broken loose in the last seven days. I lean into Sly and the Family Stone's Underdog, Michael Franti's Is Love Enough? and Marvin Gaye's Inner City Blues/Makes Me Wanna Holler as some of the songs for this week's soundtrack. Plus Michael Kiwanuka, Bakar and Wild Rivers inside The New Music Spotlight. And another sharing from my brand new 2nd podcast, "The Confusion Experiment" which offers us the deep dive so needed right now into the mind that got us here. Enjoy.
