Melting Pot

Solid show yesterday, but I did not play everything that I promised. Time just got away from me and I lost myself in the mix. Started things off with a tribute to Manning Marable, a great African-american scholar, one of a handful who inspired me to do what I do. Marable’s Malcolm X biography is set to be released this week, so I played a song that was recorded in tribute to Malcolm X, Hannibal’s “Soul Brother,” that seemed to fit for this day.

    I'll have it up on Monday for sure, just been swamped with work, which also explains the lack of posts this week. You can always e-mail me and tell me about the song…michael[at]

    Thanks for listening!
