Bonanza & Son on ResonanceFM:
We will be in conversation with Denny Tedesco, Director of the award winning documentary ’The Wrecking Crew’. This film documents the work of a large group of studio musicians in 60’s California who played on some of the most famous songs ever and changed the face of popular music. Songs you would have hitherto assumed were played by the actual bands including The Beach Boys, Elvis, The Byrds and Glen Campbell who himself was an early member of The Wrecking Crew as well as Denny’s Father and ace guitarist Tommy Tedesco.

Tommy’s guitar playing also featured on the original theme to Bonanza.

This film is truly awe-inspiring… This is a story that needs to be told and heard and this film is mind-blowing… It’s an overwhelming eye and ear-opening experience like a Rock ’N’ Roll trip around the musical Universe… I will NEVER listen to music in quite the same way ever again, no exaggeration!

Plus we are very excited to have a live session from North Carolina’s Greg Humphreys.

The show also includes our regular featurette 'Celluloid-Country’ and this week we look at the soundtrack to the 1982 film ’The Border’ starring Jack Nicholson & Warren Oates, Directed by Tony Richardson with music by Ry Cooder, Freddy Fender & John Hiatt.
+ Our Country birthdays feature.
