Everyone on the program is jokingly addressed as either ´professor´ or ´doctor´, thereby attempting to give the impression that they have a certain lofty, highbrow distinction. However, Gene Hamilton contradicts this image when he states that the Chamber Music Society of Lower Basin Street is out to ´´give culture its lumps´´, which it does, in a very delightfully musical, and humorous, way. In the middle of the show, guest commentators do such things as attempting to play an accordion under water, and an NBC page introduces a corny new song he has just written, which will never, ever make the charts. But, of course, the main attractions are the wonderful Dixieland band arrangements of Paul Lavalle and Henry Levine, which keep everything jumping. 1. Language: English. Narrator: full cast.

When I first met Jasmine Greene, she came in as raindrops. I was the awkward musician, and she was the high school queen. The only things we had in common were our music and our loneliness. Something in her eyes told me her smile wasn´t always the truth. Something in her voice gave me a hope I always wished to find. And in a flash, she was gone. Years later, she was standing in front of me on a street in New Orleans. She was different, but so was I. Life made us colder. Harder. Isolated. Caged. Even though we were different, the broken pieces of me recognized the sadness in her. Now she was back, and I wouldn´t make the mistake of letting her go again. When I first met Jasmine Greene, she came in as raindrops. When we met again, I became her darkest storm. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Erin Mallon, Kevin Free.

Positively 4th Street is a mesmerizing account of how four young people (Bob Dylan, Joan Baez, Mimi Baez Farina, and Richard Farina) gave rise to a modern-day bohemia and created the enduring sound and style of the 1960s. The story of the transformation of folk music from antiquarian pursuit to era-defining art form has never fully been told. Hajdu, whose biography of Billy Strayhorn set a new standard for books about popular music, tells it as the story of a colorful foursome who were drawn together in Greenwich Village in the early 1960s and inspired a generation to gather around them. Even before they became lovers in 1963, Bob Dylan and Joan Baez were seen as the reigning king and queen of folk music; but their songs and their public images grew out of their association with Joan´s younger sister, Mimi, beautiful, haunted, a musician in her own right, and Richard Farina, the roguish, charming novelist Mimi married when she was 17. In Hajdu´s candid, often intimate account (based on several hundred new interviews), their rise from scruffy coffeehouse folksingers to pop stars comes about through their complex personal relationships, as the young Dylan courts the famous Joan to further his career, Farina woos Mimi while looking longingly on her older sister, and Farina´s friend Thomas Pynchon keeps an eye on their amours from afar. Positively 4th Street is that rare book with a new story to tell about the 1960s: the story of how some of the greatest American popular music arose out of the lives of four gifted and charismatic figures. 1.
