Episode: Connections with Special Guests Emily Duff, Scott Aldrich and Craig Bishop

May 19, 2017 special episode of Connections on WPKN with Eric Cocks. New and vintage music. Joined by very special guests, singer/songwriter Emily Duff, guitarist Scott Aldrich and my good friend, engineer and producer Craig Bishop. Includes a very informal interview with all three, live performances by Emily and Scott, tracks from her new album, Maybe In The Morning, unreleased gems and more. 

Also a very rare unreleased Television demo recorded by Craig in 1976 (first session for Television), along with various surprises, insights, observations, stories and plenty of great laughs! 

The show starts with music by Mojo Mancini (co-produced by Craig), previously unreleased Beatles, Bob Dylan, Todd Rundgren, The Yardbirds, live Sam Phillips, Bo Diddley, comedy from Eddie Izzard and new music from Broken Social Scene, Juana Molina, Karen O, Rinocerose, Laura Marling and whatever happened in the moment. 

Also a little Beethoven at some point, plus The Photons and The Squeaky Chairs. 

Thanks for tuning in! 

Special thanks to Craig, Emily and Scott for the great music and wonderful storytelling.
