Melting Pot

kpfk-logo

All vinyl yesterday on the double bill holiday Sunday for Easter and Cesar Chavez Day. Also threw in a birthday song for Gil Scott Heron. The rest is a blur since I never plan out these all-vinyl affairs and a lot of times I’m switching out records just before I have to bring them up live into the mix. For the most part I think things worked out nicely, probably my favorite moment of serendipity was going from Canned Heat to the New York Dolls…hope you enjoy the show too.

    What is this Birthday song I used to hear on KPFK. Haven't heard it in a while. Who sings it and who composed it?

    Could you be a bit more specific? There are a lot of birthday songs, maybe the most distinctive one I've heard is Captain Beefheart singing Happy Birthday to Planet Earth for Earth Day…
