Bang & Jangle Radio Hour, Season 3, Episode 4: Smooth as Butter Part I

Max Raabe's microphone hypnosis
This week, after two episodes on the gravelly-voiced, smooth-voiced singers got their turn. No crooners this time out, but a selection of nasal songbirds, sonorous baritones, and lush falsettos. Tell me you've seen a finer lineup of golden throats:

George Formby - Biceps, Muscle and Brawn
Mississippi John Hurt - Ain't No Tellin'
Washington Phillips - Mother's Last Word to Her Son
Leon Redbone - My Blue Heaven
Tennessee Ernie Ford - Sixteen Tons
John Southworth - Life is Unbelievable
Rufus Wainwright - Rebel Prince
Max Raabe - Oops, I Did It Again
Jamie Lidell - Wait for Me
Antony Hegarty - If It Be Your Will
Beirut - Mount Wroclai
Timber Timbre - Demon Host
Bon Iver - Flume
Dead Man's Bones - My Body's a Zombie for You
Petunia - Mercy

Since this series is a followup to the gravelly-voiced episodes, we'll keep going boy-girl-boy-girl and listen to ladies with lovely voices next week. If you've got ideas for someone who must make the list, send 'em my way - my credibility hangs in the balance.

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