Melting Pot

Felt good to be back on the airwaves (and back on Facebook after a long lent) after a little break. We had a little bit of new music in yesterday’s show, including tracks from Georgia Anne Muldrow, Ceu, Ruby Fray, THEE Satisfaction and the first new album from Josh Haden’s Spain in over 10 years! Ahead of their show on Friday the 13th at the Sattelite, you got an edited version of the Sandwitches interview / performance from November of last year (here’s a link to the full performance with 2 more songs) featuring one of my favorite performances on the show from 2011. In the second hour I spend time with author Pat Thomas (separate post coming) on his new book and the CD/LP compilation, “Listen Whitey!: Sounds of Black Power 1967-1974.” There’s a good bit of insight on the process of putting something like this together as well as some interesting stories on some of the artists in the collection. I’m out of town again on April 15th, but Morgan Rhodes will fill-in for me and then I’ll be back on April 22nd!
