Bottomless Pit – 9/17/16

Published

This week’s Bottomless Pit, for 95% of the hour, is a salute to the brilliant singer/musician/composer and excellent human being, Robert Wyatt. I still occasionally run my mouth excessively about the time that I saw The MC5, The Soft Machine, and the Jimi Hendrix Experience in Detroit back in 1968 and had my 14-yr. old head spun around. From that night until right now I’ve been a Robert Wyatt fan. His recorded legacy is deep, diverse, monumental, etc., but we’ll deal with it as best we can with the time we have available.
That’s this Saturday night at 10 PM EDT, on WFUV (wfuv.org)..

Bottomless Pit – 9/10/16

Published

On this week’s Bottomless Pit, for nearly the full hour we shine the audio spotlight on the utterly great Tony Bennett, who celebrated his 90th birthday on August 3rd. Phyllis Schlafly is dead and gone, and Tony Bennett still lives, breathes, and sings. Sometimes there’s Righteousness in this world..
We’ll also hear some selections from a great CD that I just got my hands on (a friend gave me his copy, actually), called “Panorama City”. It’s a collaboration between Double-Naught Spy Car (genius, eclectic LA Rock band), and brilliant singer-songwriter Stew. This music will have you awe-struck and laughing and the same time.
That’s the Bottomless Pit, Saturday’s at 10 PM EDT, on WFUV ( wfuv.org).

Bottomless Pit – 9/3/16

Published

This week’s Bottomless Pit is a typically eclectic exercise. We’ll hear some great contemporary sounds from Bombino, and Jeff Gauthier, along with some classic sounds from The Stooges, Sandy Nelson, and of course The Mahavishnu Orchestra, and many others. The show is a weekly round-up of items from my personal record collection, and/or as my wife calls it, my Weekly Therapy Session. So be sure and catch it, Saturday night at 10 EDT, on WFUV (wfuv.org)..
