    If something is described as primitive, is that a compliment, is it derogatory? We're all affected by cultural bias, and those of us who grew up in Western culture with a built in love for the CLASSICAL, often think of non-Western art as primitive. Picasso saw value in the primitive, so did Charles Burchfield, so did many other European & American artists in the 20th century. What do you think? Do you like tribal art? Do you like paintings by Native American artists? In this week's show we'll explore the cultural biases that cause us to see things in a certain way. But we're not seeing in necessarily the right way, because maybe there isn't really a right way. After all, why not enjoy things primitive or not?, alien or not? Can we do that? We're on at the usual time this coming Sunday evening, December 11, 2016: 5PM PST, 6PM MST, 7PM CST, 8PM EST. Hope to see you then. Gary

    Antique malls across America display hundreds of examples of every conceivable shape, size, age, condition, and decoration of American stoneware pottery, and among them are extremely valuable pieces that might go unnoticed, unless you know how value is determined in today's marketplace. There have been several recent sales of cobalt decorated stoneware that have sold for more than $400,000! In the Brass Armadillo Antique Mall in Denver, Colorado I've found a couple of really special examples that we'll discuss in this week's show. One is a 5 gallon salt glaze crock by Cooper & Power of Maysville, Kentucky (one of their 1/2 gallon pitchers recently sold at auction for more than $17,000), and the other is a great 3 gallon beehive jug from Wheeling, West Virginia. I haven't been able to find comps by this maker, a Richard Nolan. Both are very reasonably priced to sell. We'll also examine about 12 other pieces of stoneware pottery currently for sale in the Mall, and discuss value on them as well. Please tune in at the usual time this coming Sunday, November 27, 2016: 5PM PST, 6PM MST, 7PM CST, 8PM EST. Gary

      MAKING A COMEBACK: TURNTABLES  Believe it or not, turntables (aka record players/phonographs) have made a huge comeback. The question most people ask is “Why”. Sure it’s nostalgic but there is much more to it than that. Vinyl records simply sound better than the sound from a CD player, MP3 player or the sound coming from a smart phone or IPOD. Playing a vinyl record harkens back to when families sat around phonographs listening to the beautiful sound emanating from the records. Take a look around The Brass Armadillo and you will see lots of dealers offering vinyl records for sale and maybe a turntable or two. Turntables offer a vastly superior way of playing music, providing a purer and higher quality sound. Most listening music today is recorded in analogue and played back in analogue, compressed, emailed and played back off some pretty terrible sound producing devices." Sometime in the near future, take a look and listen to a record being played on a turntable – you’ll be amazed at the high quality of the sound compared to your cell phone or gadget. There is a wonderful richness of sound that you won’t find any place else.
