Monday and a new week begins

Sparks Of Insanity By Vinny "Bond" Marini Monday, June 13, 2011

My son Matt arrives this Friday for 10 days. This will be the longest we have had together since I moved to Memphis. I do have to work most of the days - I am still figuring out which days I will take off - but will have two weekends to share during his stay.

Peter has a number of baseball games and I know Matt wants to attend. We are having Grillin' & Chillin' 2 while he is here...a day of friends and food. The menu includes Italian Sausage and Peppers and chicken wings and thighs which I will rub with a paprika-chili powder mixture, grill and then coat with the Cherry Bar-B-Que sauce I adapted from something I saw on the Food Channel. Potato salad, a green salad, sangria and soft drinks here. Everyone brings the alcohol of their choice. Date is the 26th. Come on down!

Been working on financing for a number of items surrounding Music On The Couch. Also thinking of opening a CafePress Shop to sell merchandise. Since it costs me nothing to design and list the items, I might give it a go.

GREAT SHOW tonight! Hope to see you in the chat dancing, no Final Fours, reruns on TV...come sit meet and hear two musicians you should know.

This week:


Stunning harmonica stylings and a classic singer-songwriter


Carlos del Jungo bent his first harmonica note at 14 and has not stopped since.

His list of awards and honors is impressive; winning Harmonica Player of the Year at the Canadian Maple Blues Awards 7 times, he was nominated for the Juno Award (Canada's Grammy) for two of his albums, and he won two Gold medals at the 1993 Hohner World Harmonica Championship.

Carlos just returned from a European tour. Who are his influences? What are his plans for 2011 and beyond?

We will talk with Carlos while listening to some of his fine music from his latest album Mongrel Mash.


Then, Danny Django will join me on The Couch.

A native of Colorado, Django describes himself as "Woody Guthrie with digital capabilities" and has been compared to Tom Petty and Neil Young.

With three albums under his belt Django has honed his musicianship and creates a wonderful sound that incorporates the best of folk, rock and Americana.

We will sit with Danny and discuss his journey and listen to music from his latest Child Indigo

We will take your calls and questions for both guests at 1.347.633.9400.
