Lost Notes (Season 2)
I wanted to wait until we had a sufficient pile of episodes out there to share, but ... Lost Notes is back for another season! Our exec producer/host this season is the great Jessica Hopper - one of the sharpest music writers and critics in the room. Check out the episode guide in the Extended Description.

Sharing these in reverse order:

s2e5: Living with John Fahey, aka A Room Full of Flowers. (Producer: Carla Green) John Fahey’s guitar playing influenced the sound of the American underground for generations. But how does that legacy change when you hear from three of the women who knew him best? (Episode coming 5/23.)

s2e4: A Castle On Top of A Hill: The True Story of Fanny. (Producers: Dylan Tupper Rupert and Paulina Velasco) The rock band Fanny ruled the Sunset Strip in the 1970s, and they were supposed to be the next big thing. They explain the price women pay for being ahead of their time.

s2e3: Sonic Sculptor: Suzanne Ciani. (Producer: Michelle Macklem) Synth pioneer Suzanne Ciani used an esoteric instrument to design some of the most well-known commercial sounds of the 20th Century.

s2e2: To Chan Marshall: A Letter to Cat Power. (Producers: Myke Dodge Weiskopf and Paulina Velasco) Poet and author Hanif Abdurraqib's letter to Cat Power about how her album The Greatest worked its way into his life.

s2e1: Teenage Offenders: Reckoning with a Punk Past. (Producer: Rob Rosenthal) Rob and his buddy Clif were teenagers when they founded The Freeze, a Boston punk band, in 1978. Now, 40 years later, Rob and Clif reckon with the lyrics they wrote as teenagers.

Future episodes will cover the story of jazz pianist Billy Tipton; an unheralded album of 1980s Pakistani-British synthpop; and a treatise on gun violence and concertgoing in the modern age.
