The Bottomless Pit for October 8 View of Piccadilly Circus in London, around 1956 (AP Photo) by 10.08.17 8:15am We're into drummers on tonight's "The Bottomless Pit" from the vault, looking back at a show I did on February 6, 2016. It's a salute to British jazz, circa 1950s-'60s. We'll hear from Phil Seamen, Kenny Graham, Dizzy Reece, Jack Parnell, and lots of other brilliant Brits. That's "The Bottomless Pit," now on Sundays at 11, and then on-demand in the Weekend Archives afterward.
On "The Bottomless Pit" tonight at 11, we'll take ourselves back musically to the 1920s and '30s as we ask and answer the musical question: "What might Rich Conaty play?" What would Rich play if he were looking through my record collection, instead of his, for things to play on his beloved and now lamented "The Big Broadcast" program? For many decades, it was the sound of Sunday night on WFUV.
This week I'm still on my long road trip, yet "The Bottomless Pit" at 11 will carry on with an all-new, non-rerun exercise. The show is a "weekly roundup of items from my personal record collection" and this week we'll hear lots of futuristic-sounding stuff from the section labeled electronica by the likes of Runddans (featuring Todd Rundgren), Madlib, Silver Apples, J Dilla, and of course many more.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
