Alison Fensterstock and Panorama Brass Band's Ben Schenck talk the music we see, hear and play during the Carnival season.
In our first year, My Spilt Milk did a number of podcast interviews, but we couldn't get the kind of regularity necessary to make them a part of people's podcast diets. Today, "My Spilt Milk: The Podcast" returns, and we plan on it returning every Monday, looking at the week ahead.
This week, music writer Alison Fensterstock and I talk about how music fits into our lives during Carnival--what we hear, where we hear it, and why? I also talk to Ben Schenck about the parade experience as part of Panorama Brass Band.
In the podcast, I talk about a Hip-Hop Family Tree-inspired playlist I made on Spotify, and Alison talked about "Mardi Gras, Down in New Orleans it's Carnival," a rap track from 1985 that owes a clear debt to Run-DMC.
This episode is our maiden voyage, and producer Justin Gitelman and I have already discussed some changes we'll make starting with episode two. If you have any comments, suggestions, questions or feedback, write me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
