The Camille Conte Show #626 10-30-2020

Mr. Moonlight is shining bright this weekend with the second full moon of the month, known as a blue moon. The phrase, "once in a blue moon" comes from the rare ocassion of having two full moons in one month but that's what makes it Rocktober! It's the first full moon to fall on Halloween in 76 years!! Sounds like 2020 to me. With it, though, comes a big dose of emotions and we let the music do the soothing.

Another listeners says yes to becoming a Patron with a monthly membership! Thank you Cindy Decker for sponsoring this week's The New Music Spotlight featuring the first music from Stevie Wonder in 15 years! He's also moved on from Motown Records after 60 years. Featuring Gary Clark Jr, Where is Our Love Song was started by Stevie when he was 18 years old. Such is the case with If I Was the Priest written by Bruce Springsteen when he was in his early 20's. Two legendary artists in their seventies bringing their songwriting full circle. Speaking of full circle, it's been seven years since I left Alaska and though I had no idea what was to be clearly something did. Enjoy.

Here's the other song Stevie Wonder has put out ahead of the new album.

Roctober birthdays kick off the show this week as we wish a very Happy Birthday to Paul Simon, Bob Weir and Justin Hayward. Cake gives us yet another thing to think about when we're trying to fall asleep. The New Music Spotlight this week features a terrific band out of Cincinnati, Ohio calling themselves, The Heavy Hours and their new song, Don't Walk Away. It's fabulous. So is the new album from Bruce Springsteen, "Letter to You" and the new song I'm loving called, I'll See You In My Dreams. Time for the weekend. Turn it up! Enjoy.

The Camille Conte Show #624 10-16-2020

This week Sammy Hagar and Eddie Van Halen as well as Lindsey Buckingham and Mick Fleetwood teach us the power of forgiveness and making amends before it's too late. We also honor Johnny Nash who died this week and Tom Petty who would have been 70 on October 20th. In fact, two previously unheard songs from Tom Petty's long anticipated re-issue of his Wildflowers album, "Wildflowers and All the Rest" kick off The New Music Spotlight that includes the powerful new song from Demi Lovato called, Commander in Chief. Cheers to our new listener in London who is helping the show grow in the UK, plus, a bit about this weekend's Women's March and why anger and outrage is the new lady-like. 

To wrap it up, The World's Greatest Joke Teller with The Joke of the Week! Enjoy.

Happy 80th Birthday John Lennon! This week's show celebrates the life, music and message of John Lennon with songs from his early days with The Beatles to his 1974 album, "Walls and Bridges" to his return to music in 1980 with the release of "Double Fantasy."  We hear John in his own words talking about his journey from misogynist to feminist along with the words of John and Yoko's photographer, Bob Gruen who I interviewed a few years ago as well as Joe Raiola, the artistic director of the Annual Lennon Tribute which will, for the first time ever, be live streaming to fans across the world all weekend long. I hope I've passed the audition! Enjoy.
