2. Mark Manning – “On meeting Anne Winter”

I met Anne Winter in February 1989. I asked her for items from her window that I could use as props at The Unicorn Theatre, she gladly started handing me things. My path crossed with Anne’s on the issues of censorship and free speech. The Greater Kansas City Coalition Against Censorship, sprang from Anne’s relationship with Richard & Linda Rostenberg, and so many others, and Anne created Culture Under Fire usually in April, lasting 10 days or so, involving lots of bands and music venues and performance artists and writers and teen poets, and zine editors, and activists and artists, all celebrating culture and free speech.

Anne Winter made a BIG difference, in my life, and in so many lives, and in our community. She connected people, cultivated events, nudged her friends closer to their dreams, making realities happen. I remember when she picked me up in her van, and drove me to Sandstone, put a wrist band on my arm and pushed me into the Spoken Word tent at Lolapalooza, or when she asked me to be Stage Manager for a show at The Uptown featuring Michael Moore, Iris DeMent and The Wilders. Anne was so staggering in her service to humankind, that it feels like she is still conducting her work, even after passing from this physical world. Is she collaborating with the higher frequencies?

I know I’m not alone, when I confess, that there are times when I feel her gentle encouragement or her beneficial honesty offered during a difficult decision. I hear her suggestion on the playlist, “can you include Calexico?” I see the relationships and connections she fostered, and all of us, who love her, are connected. I witness the meaningfulness of her beautiful life, in a world where it all goes… really fast.

I recently saw her son Max at YJ’s. David said, “look, there’s Max.” He has grown taller. He and his sister Eva, they love their mother so very much. And they have a beautiful father… Kurt von Schlemmer we love you, and send our best wishes to you and your family.

Today we start our show by remembering Anne Winter, with six songs from: The Pixies, Talking Heads, Calexico, The Flaming Lips, Loose Cannon Brass Band, and Iris DeMent, and intermingled with the music, are words from four friends: Lisa Cordes, Tim Kearns, Billy Smith, and Iris DeMent, and even a little bit of Anne herself.

These are excerpts from our 100th show, March 22, 2006 – a Tribute to Recycled Sounds.

We observe that on this day, in this moment, it has been five years.

We miss you Anne!

The song “Does Your Hometown Care?” was on the soundtrack to the 1997 film Suburbia.]

26. David Bowie – “Five Years”
from: Stage [Live] / RCA / September 8, 1978
[Stage is David Bowie’s second live album, recorded on the Isolar II world tour, and released by RCA Records in 1978. First UK pressings were on translucent yellow vinyl and some European pressings were also available on blue vinyl. Though it was rumored at the time that this would be his final outing with the label, following dissatisfaction over the promotion of Low and “Heroes”, Bowie would in fact remain with RCA until 1982. The recording was culled from concerts in Philadelphia, Providence and Boston, USA. It primarily included material from Bowie’s most recent studio albums to that date, Station to Station, Low and “Heroes” but, in a surprise show of nostalgia, also featured five songs from The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars. Aside from Bowie’s core team of Carlos Alomar, Dennis Davis and George Murray, band members included ex-Frank Zappa sideman Adrian Belew on guitar, Simon House from Hawkwind on electric violin, Roger Powell, best known for his work with Todd Rundgren in the group Utopia, on keyboards and Sean Mayes on piano, string ensemble and backup vocals. All would reunite the following year on Bowie’s next studio LP, Lodger. Generally considered more relaxed than Bowie’s previous live album, David Live (1974), Stage was praised on its initial vinyl release for the fidelity with which the band was able to emulate in concert the electronic and effects-filled numbers from Low and “Heroes”, as well as for the singer’s vocal performance. However, it was criticized for lacking a ‘live’ atmosphere, thanks to the recording being largely taken from direct instrument and microphone feeds which increased sound quality but minimized crowd noise. The original concert running order was also changed, with fades between tracks similar to a studio album.]
