Tuesday, May 09 2023, 11:00-11:55 CET: Something Like That — The History of Descarga, Part 1 – Gems from the Sabroso Music Archive

There are many tales of how it all began. Alexander Ach Schuh presents the milestones of the descarga, the Afro-Caribbean jam session. New York and Havana, Mambo and Bebop, Afro-Caribbean rhythm patterns and the accompaniment by flute and side instruments in the Cha-Cha-Cha dance halls, Latin jazz upbeat and the swing of the Cuban Sons Montunos … however the lines of development are drawn, one thing is certain: without Descarga, no Salsa. And if jazz is often described as a genuinely American creation, then descarga is one of its essential characteristics. In the interplay of elements of both Americas, jazz and salsa are siblings.

In March of the first year of the COVID-19 pandemic, Achs Saturday Jazz at The Filmbar Club was closed, as were all the other nightclubs in Vienna. Until today it has not been able to reopen. It looks like the year will be over without the Saturday Jazz DJs being able to play their brilliant selection of music at the Filmbar. Therefore, starting on November 21st 2020, every first and third Sunday of the month, we will play a one-hour part of the 12-hour dj-set by Ach 12-hour on Radio Orange. Alexander Ach Schuh presented this set especially in summer 2020 for the days when the Filmbar temporarily reopened as a café with limited opening hours.

You can listen to “Ich bin ein ganz normaler Tag” every 2nd and 4th Tuesday of the Month 11-12 AM (CET). Broadcast since 2002 on ORANGE 94.0 Vienna’s first ‘Freies Radio’/Community Radio, 55 minutes. Categories: Glamours Music for a Tuesday morning.
Almost from the very beginning, ICH BIN EIN GANZ NORMALER TAG was part of the program of Radio Orange 94.0. Designed as talk and discussion radio with Dieter Rehberg and Elke Krasny. Later supplemented by the music selection by Alexander Ach Schuh. After Dieter Rehberg left the editorial team, Ach was then also part of the discussions. Since the end of the 2000s, Ach has been solely responsible for the show, which from then on has increasingly changed into a music program. The original broadcasting slot of the 57-minute show was on the first and third Sunday of each month at 2 AM. Since July 2022, ICH BIN EIN GANZ NORMALER TAG has been broadcast at 11 a.m. on the second and fourth Tuesday of each month.
