Ace of Cups today

Interview: Denise Kaufman from the Ace of Cups

The Ace of Cups, one of the first all-women rock bands emerging in the mid-sixties , were at the center of the San Francisco music scene and the summer of love in 1967.

Fifty years later, the group has come together to record a proper studio album of old and new songs. Listen here to Carol’s exclusive interview on the Test of Time with Ace of Cups’ guitarist & bassist Denise Kaufman.

Kaufman talks about the band’s past, present, and future. Their upcoming triple album on High Moon Records offers a vast array of songs with the help of many Bay Area musicians and friends. You’ll hear Kaufman share clips from the upcoming album and tell the stories behind them. It’s been a long time coming, but is well worth the wait.

In case you missed it: What is Community Radio?

Time flies so fast on the Internet. This June 11th video from the Exploratorium museum in San Francisco might as well be tinged with sepia.

But it’s such a nice peek in on the fascinating neighborhood-level radio stations being built all across the US that we wanted to recommend it.
