All Animal Tunes on Nov. 3 Weds Sonic Detour--Seeking Animal Song Suggestions

Duncan Strauss about over 4 years ago


We're going to present an all-animal song edition of the Wednesday Sonic Detour on Nov. 3, 4-6pm.

Why? Gosh, a few reasons: It's's been more than six months since the last time we did's a pretty informal way to acknowledge that November marks the five-year anniversary since "Talking Animals" first hit the WMNF airwaves; Nov. 9, 2005, to be precise. (I launched the program in California--as a weekly, hourlong show--2 1/2 years earlier.)

We'd love to hear your animal song suggestions. Sure, things like "At The Zoo," "Blackbird," "Wild Horses," & "Elephant Talk" are dandy--we get those suggestions every time, and we've played them a bunch. Still, it might be even more fun to receive some other, less expected ideas that we could mix in with the old faves--but any & all suggestions are welcome and much appreciated. Thank you!

These are all terrific suggestions! Thanks, folks! Keep those cards & letters coming, everyone.... And for something very new--hot off the proverbial presses--I certainly plan to play, appropriately enough, "Talkin To The Animals" by Sandy Atkinson from her just-released CD, "Sandy Atkinson & The True Loves."

Howdy, Sean & Ted: Thanks a lot for the Pink Floyd suggestions. Of course, another great animal tune from PF is "Lucifer Sam," which we've played a few times when doing the all animal tune thang. Maybe again tomorow...
