Bang & Jangle Radio Hour, Season 2, Episode 8: Happy

The Dirty Dozen Brass Band
We put Anger behind us, and this week Happy came due. The latter was more fun to put together, and if you caught the show last night I hope you dug it too. I tried to do a little compare and contrast, so Big Mama Thornton appeared again this week, and the show kicked off with a more uplifting take on a religious tune:

Rev. Gary Davis - Oh Glory, How Happy I Am
Big Mama Thornton - My Man Called Me
Petunia - Big Wide River of Love
Hasil Adkins - I'm Happy
Kanui & Lula - Tomi Tomi
Moondog - Westward Ho!
Harry Belafonte - Jump in the Line
Stevie Wonder - We Can Work It Out
The Go! Team - Get It Together
Four Tet - Smile Around the Face
Taraf de Haidouks - Briu
Mike Essoudry's Mash Potato Mashers - The Getaway
The Dirty Dozen Brass Band - I'll Fly Away
Os Mutantes - Bat Macumba

A few predictable choices snuck in, but I was in a great mood by the end of it. I hate to tell you, but to complete the trilogy we've gotta do sadness. I promise to err on the side of sweet melancholy, though...

The Bang & Jangle Radio Hour airs Mondays 9:00-10:00 p.m. on Trent Radio, 92.7 in Peterborough, or online at
