About the show

Playing tracks by

The Kilcawley Family and Michael Nesmith.

A recent broadcast we made in light of Michael Nesmith's October 2012, solo, UK gigs and his first in over 30 years…

Bonanza & Son broadcast a somewhat unusual & unique tribute to the great man focussing on one of his lesser known and criminally overlooked solo LPs; ‘The Prison: A Book With A Soundtrack' LP from 1974.

A concept album which upon its original release came in a box with a large format book intended for the listener to read and contemplate the illustrations and that, my friends, is exactly what we shall be doing live on air…

… We played the original LP pressing in its entirety, with all the breaks, just as 'Papa Nez' intended whilst reading from the text. The original idea being that as one reads the book and looks at the illustrations whilst listening to the LP the reader will subsequently free themself and the protagonist from the prison of the mind!!!

This was a first for radio and a truly, unique experience. We hope you enjoy it...
