May 23, 2009 - Bien-ĂȘtre extra-ordinaire
Was it the spring fever? The sweet taste of Kilkenny ale? Maybe just blessed relief at coming back to a fully functioning studio... whatever the cause, last Saturday's Free Kick show was extraordinarily enjoyable for us hosts, and we hope that some of that well-being was successfully beamed to you, dear listeners.

This week's good times were fueled by artists including David Bowie, The Temptations, Ohio Players, Big John Patton, Ornette Coleman (w/the original quartet), Indigone Trio, Meera Rana (music & lyrics: Gopal Yonjan), Vilayat Khan, Mohammed Rafi & Mehmood (the latter pictured above, with Helen, in Gumnaam), Richard Bliwas, Bonnie Guitar, Kris Kristofferson, Spike Jones, Godz, Desperate Bicycles, Martin Tetreault, Slapp Happy/Henry Cow, Fire Engines, Sun Ra, Alexandra and The Herrings, Bizzart, Geordie Haley, Kevin Blechdom And Eugene Chadbourne, Acid Mothers Temple And The Melting Paraiso U.F.O., Mulatu Astatke & the Heliocentrics, and Sixtoo.

Happily, cable-gnawing mice were not in evidence!

To top it all off, we have one other piece of simply delightful news: the CKUT archives are finally back in action after a prolonged convalescence! So, if you want to check out the show anytime you like, you can just download the mp3:
Or, stream it by going to the CKUT archives page and asking for the slice from Sat May 23, from 21:03 to 23:01.

Usually our next show would be in two weeks - however, CKUT is planning a live broadcast from the sure-to-be fantastic Suoni per il Popolo festival on June 6, so the next Free Kick show will be on June 20, from 9 to 11 eastern time on CKUT 90.3 fm. Please tune in, we're counting on you!


But wait... before you go... why not stop a bit and spend a relaxing moment in....
the Free Kick Video Lounge ????
