Melting Pot

Nice to be back after a Super Bowl break from the show. Unfortunately, we found out about the passing of Donald Byrd earlier in the week, so we had to pay tribute to a true giant in modern music and do so during the first hour, playing music from the many different periods of Byrd’s career. At the start of the second hour we have an interview and performance with New Orleans’ Hot 8 Brass Band (separate post coming). This left us with only one set of music, featuring the Hot 8’s brilliant cover of the Specials “Ghost Town,” “new” music from Jimi Hendrix and a short tribute to J Dilla, who passed away 7 years ago yesterday. Next week we’ll be back with a full show and loads of new music + tickets!
