40 Years Ago The Fillmore East Closed

You know you’re getting older when....wait. Don't answer that.

How is it i can remember the loud, clean, piercing tone of Albert King’s Flying V, the mania that followed a J Geils performance and the southern style and majesty of the original Allman Brothers Band, but have to look for my car keys if they are not in their designated morning place?  Ok...that’s rhetorical. Don’t answer that either.

It’s Alive! Live Music For Summer Nights

There's one thing I love about Summer--ok, there are many things I love about Summer, and it's not the Mosquitos, unless you're talking about the band "Mosquitos," then, yes, but I digress. I like going to hear live music. Whether it's in the park or at a festival, I love hearing a band or a musician when the weather is perfectly hot. I don't know what the mix is, but those two combinations make for a great night. On this week's show (6/25), my goal is to have you experience that feeling from the comfort of your porch, deck or even your air-conditioned house or car.

A Toast to Father’s Day

Cheers to all you Fathers out there! On this week’s World Music Show (6/18) we’re celebrating some Fathers in World Music, as well as Grandfathers, sons, grandsons and daughters. From Bob and Ziggy Marley, to Ali Farka Toure and Vieux Farka Toure, this week’s show will showcase a few highlights of some stellar musicians.

Road Trip Summer Playlist

Roll down the window and stick your hand out like you’re flying a plane, because I want to bring you my summer road trip playlist that’s the alternative to what you may have plugged into your cassette deck over the past years. I love road trips and one of the best parts about taking them, besides the pit stops at some dive-diners and oddly named historical-themed road markers, is the music I get to play. In the past, my soundtrack has consisted of music from a certain era or genre (hello high school/college playlist).
