Singer-songwriter and music producer (Tiny Telephone) John Vanderslice returns to the show this week as co-host; he’s such a warm presence on the air, and he knows the local music scene cold. And don’t miss an event we didn’t get to — John’s hosting a party to celebrate Tiny Telephone’s 20th anniversary, with food, beer and music by Toro y Moi, Astronauts Etc. and others. Details here. 

Now here’s the Do List:

Oct. 8–13: Panamanian pianist Danilo Perez pays tribute to the genius of Thelonious Monk on the composer’s 100th birthday.

Oct. 5–15: Oscar contenders aplenty at the Mill Valley Film Fest.

Oct. 7Poetry and chamber music tell a story about gentrification in San Francisco.

Oct. 5–14: Where poetry, fiction, non-fiction, authors and drinking all mix beautifully.

Oct. 6–8: Hardly Strictly Bluegrass returns with its much needed spirit of generosity and plenty of banjos.
