Vin Scelsa's "Idiot's Delight' For February 28

by Vin Scelsa
Bruce Sinofsky (from American Masters on PBS)

The Spirit of Death hovers in and around tonight's "Idiot's Delight"® at 8, but don't let that frighten you away. It is a loving gentle Spirit. I was a little late in remembering the anniversary of the passing of Andy Warhol last week, and will make up for that tardiness. However, what's been on my mind for days is the passing of documentary filmmaker Bruce Sinofsky earlier this week. Bruce and his creative partner Joe Berlinger were frequent guests and friends of "Idiot's Delight,"® talking about such films as "Brother's Keeper," "The Paradise Lost" trilogy, and "Metallica: Some Kind Of Monster."

#Hopeontheair with Rita Houston

by Rita Houston

Back in August I was diagnosed with Stage 3 ovarian cancer. After surgery and 5 months of chemo, I just received my first clear scan!

Join me on the radio for a special edition of The Whole Wide World to share our stories, share our strength, and revel in the healing power of music. I am forever grateful for the exceptional care I received at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, especially the amazing nurses at the York St. 10th Floor and the 53rd St. Chemotherapy Suite (how do they do what they do every day?).

Wolf Alice - FUV Live - 2015

by Kara Manning

At Wolf Alice's gig at Mercury Lounge in late January, the venue was jam-packed for this canny north London quartet with a knack for songs that teeter between stormy lashings and tender idylls. On the basis of two very impressive EPs released over the last two years, Blush (2013) and Creature Songs (2014), Wolf Alice has made ambitious strides, graduating from tiny Camden Town club gigs to behemoth festivals like Glastonbury. They were tapped for the BBC's Sound of 2015 longlist and on the very morning of the Mercury Lounge show, the group signed a major label deal in the States. Wolf Alice's debut album, My Love Is Cool, will be released on June 23 via Dirty Hit/RCA.
