The Voice Box Playlists
New musics from muSix, a word from The Blanks, and an interview with Voices Only creator Corey Slutsky.
Brendan runs a one-man show! It's a beautiful day for the latest albums: Tufts Amalgamates' Hands Off the Mannequin, Tonic Sol-fa's Just One of Those Days, The Swingle Singers' Ferris Wheels and Straight No Chaser's With A Twist. Plus, Boston's most epic a cappella show of the summer, breaking news on NBC's The Sing-Off, compilation album Voices Only 2011, and House Jacks on Monday Night Football.
Sean returns after carousing in Europe and elsewhere, an interview with Dave Longo from Sled Dog Studios, and listeners are rewarded with a sample of throat-singing for becoming Facebook fans.
THE VOICE BOX RETURNS TO THE AIR! Welcome to the show's summer run, have a seat and enjoy what's comin' at you. This show Jim brings a variety of new songs to offer up, we take note of new developments in the acappella world, and Matt Caruso of ACappellaPsych takes on the language of "vocables," or acappella's background syllables.
Showing support for the generous a cappella groups who have sent in their CDs: 1 hour of nothing but what we have on the shelves. Followed in hour two with the aca-goodness and variety you need. Plus, our 100th song (SIM's Workin for the Weekend), Sean brings you: ridiculous, and Ted's Group from Scrubs. Don't listen if you are The Janitor.
The McCanns (Jim and Brendan, not related) break it down by themes: Rock, Country, Jazz, and Pop. Plus, new music from Stuck in the Middle, and the birth of Mister Jim. Your face will melt, your heart will melt, you'll like it the whole time. Hear the show at http://wunh.org/station/archives/104097.
Today we talked about stage presence, then interviewed Jonathan Minkoff- a veritable whirlwind of aca-activity- about the SingStrong festival, singing with Blue Jupiter and reviewing albums for the Recorded Acappella Review Board (RARB). Hear it at http://wunh.org/station/archives/104097!
This show features WINNERS. Brendan, Sean, Jim, and Tobi will break down several different types of acappella awards, and you can be sure that there will be plenty of mind-blowingly fantastic examples. Also, new music submissions, explanations on how songs are arranged, and a trio sung by the Voice Box crew.
With Brendan and Jim gone to a gig with Mt. Holyoke College's Victory 8s, Sean holds down the fort with Dougie Fresh and some assistance from substitute DJs Hannah and Spencer. Also, Dover, NH group Tuckerman's at 9 brings an energetic live set!
