The Bottomless Pit – 2/28


Due To my week being especially harried and hectic, this week’s Bottomless Pit is a rerun, and I went WAY back in the archives for this one, from Oct. 2011. The whole show is dedicated to the Girl Group sound and era. This music was created back in the 1960s but continues to cast it’s spell to this day.
I did the show in the first place after having to miss the Lincoln Center concert, “She’s Got the Power: A Girl-Group Extravaganza”, which I’m told was, emotionally and musically, a killer..
Tune into WFUV Public Radio this Saturday at 10 EST to hear The Luv’d Ones, Maxine Brown, Jackie DeShannon, The Shangri-Las, and many more!!..

The Bottomless Pit – 02/14


Last August, while I was in California with The Bottle Rockets, I paid a visit one afternoon to Amoeba Music in Hollywood to shop, and to be filmed while shopping. They have a video feature on their website called “What’s In My Bag”; if you’d like to see a segment of “What’s In My Bag” featuring Me, go ahead and click here.

I had a super-great time at Amoeba that day, and on this week’s Bottomless Pit we’ll take a listen to all of the records that I bought there, including selections by Sun Ra and The Arkestra, The Staple Singers, Lata Mangeshkar, and a good many more. Tune in this Saturday to The Bottomless Pit on WFUV
