New on Rock Candy

 

Little Rock's JM Associates is producing a new sports TV show for the VERSUS network. “The $ports Take,” which debuted on Tuesday and will air weekly at 5:30 p.m., focuses on the world of sports business. Longtime analyst Rick Horrow hosts. Jerry Jones, the Arkie owner of the Dallas Cowboys, was the show's first guest.

 

Circa 76, the record store on West Third, has found a new home inside the newly opened Stifft Thrift, a vintage clothes and housewares store in the former home of the Broom Closet, near the Oyster Bar. The address is 3009 W. Markham. Circa 76 owner Joey Lucas will maintain all of his stock inside. Store hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday to Saturday and 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday.

Hendrix College has announced its 2009-2010 public events calendar, and it features several big names. On Sept. 1, novelist, essayist and journalist Francine Prose gives the opening lecture, and on Oct. 6, Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist Art Spiegelman (“Maus”) talks about the development of a literary comic genre. All programs are free and open to the public. Get more info on Rock Candy.

 

After an unusually long hiatus, Little Rock's most prolific rapper is back. Since spring, 607 has been holed up teaching himself how to play violin. His brother, rapper Bobby (AKA Mr. Morbid), is learning how to play the bass, too. Last week, the duo teamed with vocalist Jessica Lauren to start work on a new album. They're calling themselves Ear Fear and their album, due Nov. 28, “Ear Fear Was Here.”
Beginning March 2010, 607 says the group will release albums every three months, the pace he'd long maintained until this year.
Go to Rock Candy to hear 607 and Bobby's remix of Brit synth duo La Roux's “Bulletproof.”
