The Camile Conte Show #615 7-31-2020

Feeling horny? Me too and why not! It's the end of July already so blow man blow. In music news, Jagger, Blondie, Lorde, Elvis Costello and others ask Congress for some new rules around politicians using an artist's music. The new rule being, of course, that they have to ask first. The show has it's second Patron from Alaska. Thanks so much to Sue and Tom May, sponsors of this week's New Music Spotlight. Under that bright lights from San Antonio, The Last Bandoleros and from Perth, Tame Impala two new bands for the show. Plus a few thougths about acceptance and The World's Greatest Joke Teller sings a song before telling The Joke of the Week. Damn. It's a good one. Enjoy.

The Camille Conte Show #613 7-17-20202

This week on the show CC narrates Bruce Springsteen, talks about sex, plays a lot of great summertime music, offers part two of "What They are Saying" which features artists like David Crosby and Buddy Guy this week who talk about the effects this virus has had on them and the music industry and of course, The New Music Spotlight featuring a new band for the show, The War & Treaty with their new song Five More Minutes and a dancer from Saint Motel and the latest tune called Preach. Oh, and you'll never guess who just put out their first ever (a band's first ever!!) line of deodorant? Oh the irony.

Turn it up!

The Camille Conte Show #612 7-10-2020

Happy Birthday Jack White, Joan Osborne and Robbie Robertson! Plus, The New Music Spotlight highlights two new bands for the show, The National Parks from Utah and from Maine, Ghost of Paul Revere and we welcome back from Brooklyn, The Lone Bellow. We also talk about the state of music five months into COVID. We can't live without music so that's our starting point. The question is, how do we do it safely? Chrissie Hynde, Bruce Springsteen, Steve Van Zandt and Southside Johnny, who is putting NJ on the map for the first "drive in" concert, share how they're feeling about things and when and how we'll make our way back to the shows. And The World's Greatest Joke Teller hits it out of the park with The Joke of the Week. Enjoy.

The Camille Conte Show #611- 4th of July 2020

America, America. You're very fabric allows us to stretch you into a new vision of liberty and justice for all. This is my 4th of July Show for this year in which, more than ever, we are realzing that democracy is never stagnant but rather a living, breathing tapestry whose threads are being rewoven into something greater. Our democracy is not stagnant nor does it belong to a few. It is in our hands right now asking that we see ourselves as the architects of a new America that lives up to its highest ideals and releases what no longer serves us.

Ray Charles, The Killers, Bruce Springsteen and others set the musical backdrop to this weekend. Plus, The New Music Spotlight shines bright on Drew Holcomb and the Neighbors and their terrific new tune, Family and Milky Chance teams up with Jack Johnson for their new collaboration, Don't Bring Me Down. And we wrap things up with my mom, The World's Greatest Joke Teller, whose presence in my days is deeply missed, with The Joke of the Week.

This land is your land. This land is my land. Let us join hands and tend to Her needs. 

Peace Camille
