Generoso and Lily at WMBR in 2012

Lily likes orange Tic Tacs, a bit too much. Tic Tacs were invented in Italy, like Generoso. They both love early Jamaican music and met at WMBR Radio, 88.1FM in 2010. At the time, Lily was producing the show Paradox Box and Generoso his Bovine Ska and Rocksteady but in 2011 they began co-hosting Generoso and Lily’s Bovine Ska and Rocksteady, a show that specializes in Jamaican music from 1955 to 1975 which started at WMBR in 1996. Here is an article written by The Boston Hassle about our 1,000th show. In 2015 Lily and Generoso moved to Los Angeles where they still do the show every Tuesday evening. Listen to all of our shows for free anytime on MIXCLOUD.

Lily has long read and enjoyed literature and has recently begun to delve into graphic novels and comic books. She’s not an expert in the medium, but she’s really excited about the stories that the form can tell. She’ll be sharing her current reads and accompanying thoughts here.  Generoso loves the 1970s and has many memories of watching films in his local theater, the Colonial in South Philadelphia. Many of these films have long since been forgotten and have been unearthed to be discussed here from Generoso’s eyes today and back when he originally saw the films.  In 2013, Generoso received a commendation from The Boston Society of Film Critics for his dozen years of programming “The Complete Works Series” at MIT: A series that showcased the work of a current but overlooked foreign film directors.Generoso was a co-curator of the European Short Film Festival in Cambridge since 2006, and in 2012 Lily joined the festival as a co-curator as well.

Together, they rarely sleep because of the enormous amount of carbs and caffeine that the consume on a regular basis, so they see a lot of movies, read graphic novels, and given that they were raised by immigrant parents in the U.S., they cook a lot of Italian and Vietnamese food. If you care remotely about any of these things that we do, please read what we put here. You’ll see what we’re discovering, reading, watching, listening, and eating. We should only post about once a week so don’t be scared.
