Bang & Jangle Radio Hour, Episode 4: Narrative Songs

Lord Buckley
Last night on the Bang & Jangle Radio Hour we took a look at Narrative Songs. Like I said on the show, most of the people on this list have extensive back catalogues, so if you liked anything you heard last night, you should definitely investigate further:

Tom Waits - Watch Her Disappear
Buck 65 - Riverbed, pt. 3
Ken Nordine - Chartreuse
Raymond Scott (w/Jim Henson) - Limbo: The Organized Mind
Lord Buckley - Governor Slugwell
Raymond Scott - Oil Gusher

I'll be back next week, and the talk of Tom Waits' influence has got me thinking of doing a world tour of musicians who have been inspired by him. I'll see what I can turn up, but I've got a good feeling...

The Bang & Jangle Radio Hour airs Tuesdays 9:00-9:30 on Trent Radio, 92.7 in Peterborough, online at

Season 1, Episode 4
