This Friday at 3 p.m. PT on the fabulous KDRT, Gary Chew features music from two fine motion pictures: Elmer Gantry and The English Patient. Both were great films, and the music is pretty great too. Gary Chew, third streaming on KDRT 95.7 FM/KDRT.org.
Yat-Kha is a Tuvan band (formed in Russia) led by vocalist/guitarist Albert Kuvezin. Despite the fact that this 2005 LP revolves around covers, the sound is absolutely unique, melding Tuvan-style throat singing with a rock feel. On Re-covers, Yat-Kha pays a distrinctive tribute to many influential musicans and bands, from Led Zeppelin to Joy Division, from Motorhead to Bob Marley.

Smack dab in the middle of the last century, it became a busy stretch for private detectives on TV. The list of "private eyes" was lengthy. At the top of that roster was a gumshoe by the name of Peter Gunn. Watching Mr. Gunn was made even more of a household routine through the music composed for the popular series by another name still familiar: Henry Mancini--his compositions and arrangements of those tunes helped immensely. Now as Hank's birthday anniversary draws nigh, Gary Chew has chosen some cool Mancini sounds for part of this week's 3rd Streaming. Other pieces by Gershwin and David Amram round out this hour, only on KDRT.
