Melting Pot

First shows of the year are often difficult just because there’s not a lot of new music out at the very start of a new year. Today’s show was made more difficult because we lost our first major musician of 2013 in “Sweet” Lou Wilson of Mandrill. Our first hour was focused on a few newer and upcoming bits of music as well as a couple of things that slipped through the cracks in 2012. Second hour is devoted to some of my favorite tracks from Mandrill, all of which feature “Sweet Lou” on vocals, trumpet or percussion. Had a little technical difficulty with the first hour of the program, but thankfully everything worked out fine for the tribute to Lou Wilson of Mandrill in the second hour. I’ll add the first when I get a solid dub of the program later in the week.
