Album of the Week, Dec. 20, 2023: 'The Next Noel' by Ekemi

In 1989 Jeanne and I went to a small jazz club downtown Cincinnati, where we were living at the time. We heard two University of Cincinnati students playing. The duo was called Ekimi consisting of Billy Larkin and Chris Dahlgren. I chatted with them and bought their holiday CD. Fast forward 30-plus years, and I pulled out their CD to play. I was now a 30-year resident of Davis, and I Googled those two musicians. To my surprise, Billy Larkin had moved to Davis. Chris had relocated to Berlin.

The CD still sounds fresh, especially the "Little Drummer Boy" version. Billy can be heard around the Davis area -- check out his Facebook page at Billy Larkin. Now sit back and enjoy the music and the season.

On a lark, I landed on your station this evening. Can you please tell me the name of the group featured in your Album of the Week this evening? They were AMAZING!!!

So sorry, but we have no idea what featured on May 8th! There was a last minute DJ change and we think something was played that was archived... it might perhaps have been the initial AotW episode, which was Neutral Milk Hotel - In the Aeroplane Over the Sea.

If that wasn't it, reply again and we can maybe try harder to figure it out!

In compliance with FCC regs, we will not be streaming episodes of AotW.

Please tune in live or check out the albums on your own and thank us later.
