Twirl Radio Playlist – Show #794 – 9/9/2017: Karla Kane & Fun Of The Pier in-studio interviews!

Karla Kane

Today’s show featured two musical married couples–Karla Kane and Khoi Huynh of The Corner Laughers, and Helen and Mark Luker of Fun Of The Pier. Karla and Khoi are no strangers to Twirl Radio, but this time, we celebrated the release of Karla’s first solo album, “King’s Daughters Home For Incurables”. In the interview, we learned where the seemingly mysterious title comes from. While the sound of Karla’s solo songs may be a tad quieter and folkier than The Corner Laughers, there’s no mistaking who wrote the songs. Karla’s style is pretty unique among her peers–always intellectual and witty, and if a social statement needs to be made, it’s made in a gentle way that still manages to cut right to the point. A fine record indeed! http://www.karlakane.com

Fun Of The Pier

We were also treated to a visit with Helen and Mark, who are visiting us from Nottingham, UK! They’ve toured and played with The Corner Laughers in both the UK and US, and have just released their first full-length record, the delightful “14:42”. During the interview, we learned about the origins of the intriguing band name. Helen is the songwriter and singer/guitarist, Mark plays bass, and Richard Snow rounds out the trio with his signature guitar playing. The music is warm and sunny. Speaking as a Californian, it sounds very much at home here. Also a fine record! http://www.facebook.com/pg/funofthepier
