Ever heard Spatula? Idyll Swords? Shark Quest? Pykrete? Chuck Johnson? Know what they have in common aside from awesomeness? Chuck Johnson!

What an awesome guy, right? What a total shredder! Well guess what, that awesome shredder will be stopping by WXYC a week from today to play some songs and give an interview on a specialty episode (in part meaning that this will not be during the normal BY BBQ time!) of the Backyard Barbecue. We're thrilled!

Join DJ Matt L for the Global Music Show tonight at 9PM:

The (Re)Invention of the "Chanson française"

The "Chanson française" has been a hallmark of French culture since the beginning of the 20th century. This tradition of singer-songwriters place a particular focus on the use of the French language -- its poetry, its lyricism, and its imagery. This week's show will propose a broad overview of how this genre has evolved from early precursors like the 19th century "poètes maudits," to its mass-market breakthrough in the postwar period, to today's global influences.
