GET YOUR GROOVE BACK (aka The Jobs & Growth Show)

Dare I use the “e” (ecl#$%tic) word to describe the wide-ranging styles of music that you will hear on Get Your Groove Back? You’ll hear Muddy Waters back to back with Ali Farka Toure, Sister Rosetta Tharpe with Johnny Winter, Dya Singh with Rory McLeod. Programs include featured albums, tracks to a theme, particular styles (from blues to world), guests (some of whom actually turn up, some of whom are interesting), film soundtracks and other stuff made up on the spur of the moment. Regular features include music I borrow from the library, instrumentals and music around a moment in history. If your life has a soundtrack, the chances are you’ll hear it on Get Your Groove Back.

Have a good Hallowee? Did you know twice as much spent on Halloween as on national parks: Americans were expected to spend $US8.8 billion ($12.8 billion) on lollies, costumes and decorations this year — or $86 for every person who plans to celebrate. That includes half a billion dollars on costumes that Americans are buying for their pets; To put the $US8.8 billion being spent on Halloween in context, the budget for the entire National Park Service is only $4 billion. The US spends less than $2 billion on flu vaccines. [abc]
