The Camille Conte Show #640 1-29-2021

Keeping you on your musical toes with some suprising opening songs this week as we explore what was going on just ten years ago compared to 50 years ago musically. Janis Joplin's Pearl gets our attention this week, one of the important rock albums from 1971. Janis kicked open the door for thousands of female performers who followed including, in my opinioin, Grace Potter who kicks off The New Music Spotlight this week. Also under the bright lights, Edie Brickell's brand new song, Tripwire. Plus, the 9th Annual DREAMRAISER is rounding the bend! Now is a wonderful time to support the show.

The Camille Conte Show #639 1-22-2021

Three singer songwriters share the stage for this week's The New Music Spotlight. Zach Bryan, Aaron Lee Tasjan and Chris Stapleton bring their own versions of honest, emotionally authentice songs to the show this week. We also begin to take a closer look at the albums released in 1971 that have stood the test of time these last fifty years and how the birth of FM radio was the album's ultimate companion. Plus, the songs that began the next chapter of our fragile democracy and why we must never fall asleep again. The World's Greatest Joke Teller who now has her own coffee mug wraps things up with The Joke of the Week.

We begin the show with a celebration of David Bowie's 74th Birthday and some of his most enduring songs including a just released cover of John Lennon's "Mother" that Bowie did in 1998 as part of a Lennon tribute album that never materialized!  It's incredible. Music from Tracey Chapman lays out the way out of this chaos and confusion and we shine The New Music Spotlights on seventeen year old, Allentown, NJ singer/songwriter, Grace Kerlin and her debut album, Trying to Find. Plus news about the 9th Annual DREAMRAISER coming up next week with new merchandise, t-shirts and more! 

Here's photographer's Mark Krajnak's photos of Grace. 

Here's the Bowie tribute concert that's streaming this weekend.

The Camille Conte Show #636 - 2021 Happy New Year Show

It's a new dawn, it's a new day, it's a new life and I feel free. The first show of 2021 is all about feelin' good, raisin' the vibration, giving ourselves permission to feel better, to feel a bit lighter. Today we line up the songs that get us up on our feet, move to the groove, cause us to sing and shout and remember that it's okay, especially on New Year's Day, to turn it up. Nina Simone, Michael Franti, Ziggy Marley and many more!

The 9th Annual DREAMRAISER starts January 15th with some great gifts and new merchandise! 

Thank you so much for all your love and support in 2020. Wishing you and your family peace, health and the music the lights you up.

So much love, Camille
