Bang & Jangle Radio Hour, Episode 14: Singing to Themselves

Bobby McFerrin
The vocal harmonies theme carried through last night into an episode on vocal overdubbing. All six tracks featured singers creating their own backup vocals, beats, or other effects. Sound avant-garde on paper, but this was the poppiest episode of the Bang & Jangle Radio Hour on record:

Patti Page - Confess
Tom Waits - Innocent When You Dream
Kate Bush - Suspended in Gaffa
Patton/Kaada - PitiƩ Pour Mes Larmes
Elliott Smith - I Didn't Understand
Bobby McFerrin - Good Lovin'

I had to sacrifice mad Finnish genius Islaja and a few other nifty artists for the sake of time, but I'll keep 'em in mind for the future. Next week, I think we'll alter the focus a little, and look at musicians who have overdubbed themselves performing on instruments other than voice.

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

Season 1, Episode 14
