Description

Join Nancy J. Reid and Lisa D. Smith, the mother-daughter travel team and publishers of Big Blend Magazines, for this episode of Big Blend Radio's Toast to The Arts Show with acclaimed TV writer/producer Lee Aronsohn who discusses his first feature film, 40 YEARS IN THE MAKING: THE MAGIC MUSIC MOVIE.

Prior to moving to Los Angeles in 1975, Aronsohn attended the University of Colorado, where he was introduced to the music of Magic Music, one of the most fondly- remembered bands of the Boulder revolution. 40 years later, the songs he had heard Magic Music play on the campus quad continued to echo in his head, but there was no record to listen to, no CD, or no MP3s. 40 YEARS IN THE MAKING: THE MAGIC MUSIC MOVIE chronicles how Aronsohn tracked down the original band members four decades later to tell their story. More importantly, he makes a dream come true for himself, fellow fans, and the band, by bringing them all back to Boulder for a sold-out reunion concert that preserves their legacy for posterity. As a television writer, composer, and producer, Aronsohn wrote for some of the most successful and influential prime-time comedies of the modern era including The Big Bang Theory, Two and a Half Men, and Murphy Brown.

This episode was sponsored by the National Parks Arts Foundation who creates unique artist-in-residence programs in park units within the National Parks Service.

Big Blend Radio: On Big Shoulders - A Tribute to Chicago's Musical History
Chicago, at its very core, is a city of sound. While the storied hub of hard work is well known for its hunger and heart, the town’s history is surely shaped as much by its music as its muscle. Old Town School of Folk Music teacher and old-time musician Matt Brown recently set out to tell that story, a project that would become On Big Shoulders.Brown recruited some of Chicago’s most skilled players: guitarist and vocalist Steve Dawson; pedal steel player Brian Wilkie; bassist Aaron Smith; drummer Gerald Dowd; singers Keely Vazquez, Gia Margaret, Elise Bergman, and Liz Chidester; and horn players Anna & Evan Jacobson. With his own fiddle and GRAMMY-nominated co-producer Liam Davis singing and playing keys, the group headed to I.V. Lab Studios. Set for release on November 2, 2018 via Allograph Records, the ten song album features songs like Wilco’s “It's Just That Simple”, “Heavy Traffic Ahead” by Bill Monroe, Sam Cooke’s “I’ll Come Running Back to You”, “Long Tall Mama” by iconic Chicago blues artist Big Bill Broonzy , and “How Lonely Can You Be?” by alternative country artist Robbie Fulks .Join Nancy J.
