Legacy Podcasts

We love music as much as you do.

Legacy Podcasts salutes the 40th anniversary of Monty Python’s Flying Circus with “The Gazillionth (or so) Monty Python Podcast” hosted by their biggest fan in cable news – MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann.

March is John Philip Sousa’s favorite month, and 23 is a lucky number inspired by the recent news of Python’s 23,000% DVD sales increase due to youtube.  Therefore, our four-part podcast series will launch on Monday, March 23.

The series features clips of their sketches and musical pieces they recorded for their string of classic albums that brought their comedy empire beyond TV and film to the most enduring entertainment device of them all – the turntable.  You’ll also hear interviews with cast members Eric Idle, John Cleese, and Terry Jones, plus Carol Cleveland and many others.

We know you can’t wait until Monday so here’s Keith Olbermann (aka K-Dog) with a preview of what you’ll hear.

Producer: Joyride Media

Update:  Holy hand grenade shuts down London pub.  You can’t make this stuff up.

Sam Cooke 4

Posted by Legacy Recordings On February - 25 - 2009ADD COMMENTS

Sam Cooke’s popularity didn’t stop him from trying to improve himself and his music, from an intellectual standpoint.   Having started with traditional hymns and adding new lyrics, he had attained success and kept challenging himself intellectually, reading everything from Aristotle to James Baldwin.  In this podcast, author Peter Guralnick, Sam’s brother LC Cooke and musicians Bobby Womack and Hal Blaine describe the man’s motivations as he created Night Beat, the blues recording literally recorded in the middle of the night.  Recording engineer Al Schmitt, who worked on some of Cooke’s best known music: “He was really hands on in the studio… just amazing.”

Songs included: “What A Wonderful World” “For Sentimental Reasons” “Trouble Blues” “Fool’s Paradise” and “Bring it on Home to Me”
