Moodring, Live on Un|Herd, March 22

 

 

 


Un|Herd
with Moodring
March 22nd 2010, 10pm-11pm
KBOO 90.7fm, streaming at www.kboo.fm

It has been far too long in to the history of Un|Herd to go without the music of Moodring. You may know Mae Starr and Monte Trent from the historic Rollerball, but thats just for your convenient reference. Moodring is far more psychedelic, almost kraut-rock at times, danceable even... I can't seem to find a simple term or generic catch phrase to post their sound to, which is a good thing! So for you, just kick your feet up and relax with Moodring tonight.

Host Ed Goldberg speaks with Annie Barrows, co-author of The Guernsey Literary and Potato Pie Society, a novel of love and intrigue on an island in the English Channel in 1946.

Mary Ann Shaffer became interested in Guernsey while visiting London in 1976. On a whim, she decided to fly to Guernsey but became stranded there when a thick fog descended and all boats and planes were forbidden to leave the island. As she waited for the fog to lift, warming herself by the heat of the hand-dryer in the men's restroom, she read all the books in the Guernsey airport bookstore, including Jersey under the Jack-Boot. Thus began her fascination with the German Occupation of the Channel Islands.
