This week’s show is another grab bag-type exercise, a bunch of recently purchased, or recently acquired, items. Some of this music is brand new to me, and to the marketplace, and some of it has been in my head forever, but again, it’s all newly purchased/acquired by me.
We’ll hear some tracks from the great new album by The Dirtbombs, “Ooey Gooey Chewy Ka-Blooey”, some long-time favorite stuff of mine by The Rationals, from Ann Arbor, Mich., some remarkable stuff from Scottish singer-songwriter (and pen pal of mine) Daniel Wylie, and some music from Dot Wiggin, Nicole Mitchell, Robert Quine, and of course much, much more.
That’s the Bottomless Pit, Saturdays at 10 PM EST, on WFUV.
The third EP in Marshall’s vinyl series is available today! “Driving and Dreaming” can be purchased in retail stores, on Amazon.com, and at Marshall’s online store. It will be available on all digital platforms on Cyber Monday (12/2).
Be sure to stop by The Record Collector in Bordentown, NJ for the release show this Friday at 7:30 PM! Grab your tickets here.
Join me, if you will, for this week’s Bottomless Pit (10 PM EST, WFUV), for an hour long installment of one of the show’s signature occasional feature segments, “A Salute to the Fender Stratocaster”. I’ve been playing one myself, mostly, since 1972, and on the show we’ll hear from some of the people, men and women that is, who’ve helped to make the Stratocaster the iconic American object that it is, namely people like Jim Kipler, Sammy Pruitt, Leni Stern, Bobby Speivak, Pee Wee Crayton, Nile Rodgers, and Thumbs Carllile, just to name a few, plus many others… I promise that it’ll be fun and interesting.
