DJ: Suzy Greenberg
Music: Haley Bonar
Sometimes the power of a voice can bring tears to your eyes, no matter what the lyrics are and regardless of the Rhoads or Stratocaster being played to moody perfection in the background. Luckily in this case, Haley Bonar’s delicate but straightforward expressiveness and the subjects she tackles are pure in emotion, tone, and poetry. She mixes no-depression style country angst with the wonderings of new folk, channeling Emmylou Harris and Freakwater into songs that are unexpectedly devastating and hopeful.
Movie: His Girl Friday
Directed by Howard Hawks
Jealous newspaper editor Walter Burns (Cary Grant) fumes when his ex-wife and star reporter Hildy Johnson (Rosalind Russell) announces that she’s going to be married the following day. This gives him barely 24 hours to use his cunning, wit, and chicanery to win her back. 1940, U.S., BW, 16mm, 92 minutes.
