“Everything I Know”

July 22nd, 2012

This would be the "B-side" of the "Sun Is Shining" single, if such a format still existed.  Originally recorded as a demo for LiLi Roquelin, producer Bruce Gordon identified it as a potential candidate for the upcoming Sam Scozzari album, Some of Adam's DNA.  LiLi went on to co-author and record "Oh Brother" for her forthcoming album (another song on the song demo in that session), and "Everything I Know" was recorded at Greenpoint Studios with Bruce Gordon as producer.

Written by Sam Scozzari, (p)published by Sam Scozzari Publishing BMI, (c) 2005, 2012

Sam Scozzari - lead and background vocals, drums, piano, organ, keyboard vibes

“Sun Is Shining”

July 22nd, 2012

This is the latest single from Sam Scozzari: "Sun Is Shining"...it was co-written and conceived in late 1979 with John Kralles of Rochester NY and remained an unfinished idea until 2012, when it was completed during the sessions for Some of Adam's DNA with producer Bruce Gordon in NYC.  Written for song-pitching purposes, it seems that it would be the "A" side of any old-school single, and is now available as a download single

MARATHON #1 (2/6) - Gothics for December 18, 2010

May 7th, 2011

Wait! don't leave!  this episode contains some odd material from John and Yoko's album Unfinished Music No. 2 / Life With The Lions.  It's a track called "Two Minutes Silence" with songwriting credits to Lennon/Ono.  It describes the track precisely and occurs on the program at approximately 13 minutes in to 15 minutes in; it is followed up with John Lennon's "Nutopian International Anthem" from Mind Games, which is a 3-second long track of silence.  The program continues with Bonny Raitt, The Beatles, and some seasonal pop favorites from McCartney, Lennon (a home demo of "Happy Christmas"), and a unique version of Joni Mitchell's "River" that was recorded by David Clayton Thomas on a flexi-disc for a MusicGram greeting card.

MARATHON #1 (1/6) - Gothics for December 18, 2010

April 23rd, 2011

This is a fill-in by Sam Scozzari for John Scott's Underground Radio (Friday's Gothic Blimp Works) with a follow on of the Friday All Night Show, making this a DJ-shift of 6 hours from Midnight to 6am.  It is not to be confused with the station "marathons" that are fund drives to raise money from listeners.  With six hours of show, things tend to get deep.

In the first of six hours, the program features quasi-inspirational music taken from the late October 2010 release, Come And Get It: The Best of Apple Records, a 17-disc box set that issues remasters of 15 non-Beatles, non-solo, and non-Yoko albums released by the Apple label from 1968-1974.  This hour features a bonus track from the Modern Jazz Quartet, some interesting modern music from John Tavener's Celtic Requiem album, James Taylor's "Greensleeves" link into "Something Wrong" from his first album, James Taylor (issued on Apple!), Mary Hopkin with "International" for Earth Song/Ocean Song, Billy Preston's version of "My Sweet Lord" (the original version), and a bonus track from Doris Troy, who release one album on Apple.

Later in the first hour, a 20-minute taste of The Band Wagon is featured, with unsigned artists being exposed to the Friday/Saturday midnight listening audience.

This episode was aired on December 18, 2010, from Midnight to 1:00 AM.

This six-part sequence of programming represents a strong cross section of the types of music and discussion featured on The Friday All Night Show.  Other portions of the 6-part program can be found on the site.
