The Bottomless Pit – 12/20


Please join me this week for the first of two wrapping-up exercises for 2014, both of which will include some Holiday Season music by Kay Martin and Her Bodyguards, The Pogues, and others..
This week I’ll re-cap 2014 from a personal standpoint, talk about some interesting work experiences I had this year, and play some tracks by Drivin’ and Cryin’, Steve Wynn, Kathryn Williams and Neill MacColl, plus lots of others.
That’s the Bottomless Pit, Saturdays at 10 PM EST, on WFUV

The Bottomless Pit – 12/13


As mentioned last week, this week’s Bottomless Pit is a full-hour tribute to the great, and now sadly late, Ian McLagan. We’ll hear his musical soul-power, of which he had massive amounts, on records by The Small Faces, The Faces, Ron Wood, Rod Stewart, James McMurty, Lucinda Williams, and many more others, including Ian himself (in his singer-songwriter mode).

He was a real favorite of mine, somebody who could play “the phone book” and break your heart with it..

The Bottomless Pit – 12/6


I have the blues today over the death of Ian McLagan, one of the greatest Rock musicians who ever breathed air..

This week’s Bottomless Pit is a “rerun anthology”, assembled from parts of past shows, because I haven’t had a spare minute during the last two weeks to do a new show; late last night I thought of scrapping the “rerun anthology” and slapping together a quick Ian McLagan tribute, but instead I’ll do a full show on him next week, will have time to do it thoughtfully, etc..

Meanwhile, this Saturday on the show I’ll trace the history of the vibraphone, the history of The Move, and a little bit more..
