The No Prisoners, No Mercy Show 103 is live – you can listen to it on itunes or on www.virginworlds.com here.
This time out we start with some news about Doom Sayers vs. Bioware, Ubisoft, a tragedy in Taipei and more. Along the way we found out why the father of modern computing, Alan Turing is still considered a criminal.
In the second half of the show we sit down for a conversation with Zeke from Ironmanmode.com. Zeke and his friends have been turning video gaming permadeath into dollars for Charity. The first charity he is working on is Childs Play . Then the conversation turns to a game that may have been on your radar and certainly has gone viral – minecraft.
See you online,
Julie and Fran
Musical Education – yours and ours:
This time out as you listen to the excerpts and mashups you will hear the dulcet tones of the father of the slide guitar, Elmore James, and those he influenced. Elmore and his Broomdusters brought the blues guitar to the Chicago blues scene up until the early 1960s. If you listen to the sounds of ZZ Top (especially Billie Gibbons) and George Thorogood you will hear the total influence that this underappreciated guitarist has been blues music. Elmore James also influenced the greats like Jimi Hendrix, Keith Richards (bass guitarist for The Rolling Stones), Eric Clapton and Frank Zappa. So influential was Elmore James on Brian Jones, founding member of The Rolling Stones, that Keith Richards has stated that without the influence of Elmore James that The Rolling Stones might not even exist.
