Musical Odyssey - July 22, 2007

The playlist is here.

I received a request to hear Manolis Mitsias (there isn't much in this link, I know. If anyone has more info please send it to me) and I thought I would post one of his videos. Below is his classic "Afta ta heria" Great video with dancing too.

I talked about Gus Vali and played some of his music. I only played two songs I play his music pretty frequently.

I had planned on featuring Nikos Gounaris but I ran out of time, we will talk about and hear his music next week.

As always, comments and requests are welcome: or leave a comment below.

Here is the playlist.
I don't play enough Vasilis Papakonstantinou but I played the song Kripsou, which is one of my personal favorites.

Today we talked about Lisa Andreas and played her Eurovision entry from 2004. A video of her performance is below.

We also heard an old favorite "Astoria" from Elly Paspala. Not too much info on here is available but you can see her discography here.

Thanks for the calls and IM's I received today. Requests and comments are welcome anytime at

Musical Odyssey - July 8, 2007

Here is the playlist

I recently saw the movie
Sicko and was pleasantly surprised to hear Vicky Leandros singing L'Amour Est Bleu for about 20 seconds or so during the film (video of the song below).

During the show, I talked about and played songs by
Manolis Aggelopoulos.

We heard *3* versions of Socrates, the originals by Elpidia in Greek and English and the remake (from Euro Revisions) by Evridiki (both videos also below).

Musical Odyssey - July 1, 2007

Here is the playlist.

We focused a bit on Yiorgos Papasideris and heard some of his folk songs. I wish I had a little more information about him but at least we have the basics.

We heard an old favorite of mine today
Savina Yannatou - Lu purtuni. As the person who posted the video said - It is actually 2 traditional Italian songs merged into 1 song "Pinguli Pinguli Giuvacchinu" and "Lu purtuni" A traditional Apulian (southern Italy) along with a nursery thyme from Salento. Lovely song and artist. Watch the video below and enjoy!
