Hey there, my name is Ahniwa Ferrari and I have a weekly two-hour radio show where I play jazz, swing, and blues tunes from around the world.
You can find my show live and local in Olympia, WA at 89.3 FM, every Wednesday from 4:00 – 6:00pm Pacific Time. Listen live online at kaosradio.org, via TuneIn, or using your favorite mobile radio app such as RadioFX.
I know the title may be Bagpipe Blues, but this is really bagpipe swing, baby!
Gunhild Carling is my new discovery, so along with a couple tracks from her (and her big band) we’ve got Rugcutter Dance Orchestra, Dandy Wellington, Tacla, Shirt Tail Stompers, Posey Royale, and lots, lots more!
No really, bagpipes. In swing. It works, I swear ….
Tamar’s birthday was July 29 (which is actually a happy coincidence!) – but I actually decided to focus on her in this show because I realized just how many tracks I had with her singing that were with entirely different groups and in different settings. Like this lovely little personal concert she did last year with Mamie Minch …
Lots of great music all around, of course, but you’ll hear Tamar singing in various tracks with various bands, such as Gaucho, Eli & the Chocolate Factory, Professor Cunningham and his Old School, and Mona’s Hot Four. And, of course, with Mamie Minch, again, because they are both amazing.
We’re back, and with lots of great music to share! Along with both Portal songs in swing-along versions from 8-Bit Big Band, I have some great tracks from Shirt Tail Stompers, The Hot Sardines, Le Dancing Pepa Swing Band, and Monkey Doo, among others.
Here is a fun recent video from Monkey Doo over on their YouTube channel, speaking of. Check it out!
New shows getting posted over on Mixcloud, but you will hear them first if you tune in to KAOS directly, either via the local airwaves or streaming at kaosradio.org or using your favorite radio streaming app.
