Jan 28, 2018 00:48:09

Description:

The first Mixed Up Confusion of 2018 isn't one that we planned for or hoped to do. Dolores O'Riordan of The Cranberries passed away on January 15, 2018. Hugely influential in Kelly's life, we couldn't not talk about them. Perhaps it's best to note the times for the music we play for you to try to get the gist of how we approached our week of listening. We began with "Empty" (8:05), "Zombie" (12:45), "Copycat" (16:50), "Salvation" (26:00), "I Shot John Lennon" (28:30), "Dreams" (30:15), "Wake Up and Smell the Coffee" (35:00) and "Roses" (41:30). RIP Dolores.

This week: "Sara" off 1976's DESIRE. Daniel and Kelly dive deep into Sara and Bob. She's one of those cornerstones on which Dylan, the singer-songwriter at least, rests and we've talked about her circuitously, so why not just dive in? We talk Sara, Bob, the lyrics, what constitutes a love song, and how DESIRE and Scarlet Rivera can seemingly never falter in Kelly's ears. Full show notes at www.sotwpod.com and we're @sotwpod on Twitter, Tumblr, Instagram, Facebook, all the spots you'd expect! Next week: looking into a stagnant pool

040a - Mixed Up Confusion (True Crime)

Dec 18, 2017 00:35:20

Description:

Sign on the Window presents... Truuuuuuuue Crime! Spooky! Because Hollis Brown committed the unspeakable (but singable) and we didn't have room, here's what Mixed Up Confusion was created to serve! Today we talk famous cases of familicide. We got the heavy hitters: Robert William Fisher, Bradford Bishop, Chris Benoit, Lizzy Borden. We got the historical: Abel Clemmons, Captain James Purrington, Thomas George Woolfolk. We got the early 20th century: George Hassell, Charlie Lawson. We got people too close to today that'll make you feel downright horrible. Daniel also becomes a newsie when he reads the headlines like Rosa Wurzer's from 1901: "KILLS HER SIX CHILDREN.; Crazed by Poverty, Woman Throws Them in a Well, Jumps In, and Deliberately Drowns Them." Or Edwin Stephens from 1905: "INSANE SHOTS END FAMILY. HORRIBLE TRAGEDY AT A ROSS VALLEY CHICKEN RANCH; Sickly Stephens Murders Wife and Three Children in Their Beds, Fatally Shoots Two Remaining Children, Fires at Milkman, Then Takes His Own Life." In the end, John Boecker in 1897 and Lillie May Curtis in 1938 connected (and still connects) "Ballad of Hollis Brown" to this day: "IOWA FARMER'S AWFUL ACT; John Boecker Killed His Wife and Five Children at Night and Then Committed Suicide. ANOTHER CHILD FATALLY SHOT No Motive for the Tragedy Yet Disclosed, Although It is Intimated that There Was Trouble About the Farm;" and "A mother who told officers she was ill and unable to provide for her family killed six of her nine children as they slept at a lonely farm, home near here last night, kissing each good-bye before and after shooting them." Season 1 is ova. We will be back for Season 2 on January 8, 2018 but you can enjoy all our old episodes at www.sotwpod.com or by following @sotwpod on Twitter, Tumblr, Instagram and/or Facebook. We

Next week: "What I'm talking about is traditional music, right, which is to say it's mathematical music, it's based on hexagons. But all these songs about, you know, roses growing out of people's brains and lovers who are really geese and swans are turning into angels - I mean, you know, they're not going to die. They're not folk music songs. They're political songs. They're already dead. You'd think that these traditional music people would - would gather that mystery, you know, is a traditional fact, you know, seeing as they're all so full of mystery."
