Episode 61 – Bhangaz & Beatles

We rate the Shankar musical dynasty. From Ravi, who taught the Beatles what they know about Indian music, to Ananda, who’s exploits opened up the psychedelic sitar sound, to the Anglo-Indian sounds of Bishi Bhattacharya. Mesmerizing Indian Bhangaz one and all.

  • Howard deVoto’s celluloid sexual exploits: shooting off the full Magazine.
  • The sly saxophone in garage with the Salados – take note!
  • Caught in the headlights, collecting roadkill with the men from Uncle.
  • How to forget that you’re working on the chain gang.
  • The early blues recordings of Alan Lomax.
  • Matthew goes goating up the hill and misses the Moonshot!
