Melting Pot

Fantastic show yesterday here at the end of the month, all on vinyl records, as is customary once a month on Melting Pot. Started things off with a short set in solidarity with those protesting in Egypt and other parts of the world for a better life than the one they currently have, beginning with a powerful statement from Max Roach along with the J.C. White Singers. Closed the show out with a mini-tribute to Charlie Louvin, who just passed away at 83, with his classic track “Satan Is Real” recorded with his brother Ira Louvin around 1960. The Louvin Brothers recorded some mighty fine country music during their heyday, especially country gospel, and were a major influence on Gram Parsons, who you also hear in the closing set…finally they are reunited again. In between we have an amazing guest DJ set from Music Man Miles of Breakestra (click here if you just want to hear the set by itself) and a fabulous performance from La Sera, which features Katy from Vivian Girls! (click here if you just want to hear the performance/interview) Enjoy the show, I’m just so glad all the proper stars aligned for this one and that I’m able to archive it here for you to hear (I don’t even mind the fact I cued up the Intruders “Sad Girl” at the wrong speed for a minute, I’m just thankful all the other technology worked)!
