Tonight on Echoes we’ll be airing an interview with Icebreaker and BJ Cole talking about their beautiful cover of Brian’s Eno’s 1983 collaboration with Roger Eno and Daniel Lanois, Apollo-Atmospheres and Soundtracks. Our show was recorded last Friday, making it to early too comment on the passing of Neil Armstrong, the first man to set foot on the moon. With Martin Scorsese’s Hugo, Air’s Le Voyage Dans La Lune, Icebreaker’s Apollo, and the Curiosity Mars Rover
it has been a lunar and interstellar year. Now with the passing of Neil Armstrong, it all comes into sharper and more poignant focus. I wish I could r-ecut that show to honor one of the few men to experience a dream that many of us have had, to travel to other worlds and touch the stars. But when you listen to James Poke and BJ Cole talking about Eno’s classic album tonight, think of Neil Armstrong.
Echoes affiliate WEXT will be dedicating an hour of songs to the man on the moon, Neil Armstrong at noon eastern time, today (8/27/2012) , spun by Chris Wienck at Exit 97.7 WEXT You can catch them online.
Neil Armstrong, traveling the spaceways forever.
Here’s a clip of Icebreaker’s liver performance of Apollo in 2010. An album of that event has just been released.
