This week’s show is a hybrid affair, let’s say.. Originally the plan was to do an “All Buddy Edition” of the show, following in the tradition of the “All Hank”, and “All Bobby” shows that I’ve done lately..
But, as I’m just back from an eventful 3-week road trip, I decided to also do a Road Trip Recap, featuring some interesting music that I heard while traveling, and a little bit of music from The Smithereens, and The Romantics, some great fellas and old pals that I’ve done some gigs with recently..
So it’s all of the above, and that’s this Saturday, at 10 PM, New York time, on WFUV

Since I first started doing the Bottomless Pit back in 2005 (sporadically, then habitually), there’s been an occasional recurring feature segment on the show called “A Salute To the Fender Stratocaster”. This week’s show is mostly an All-Buddy Holly Edition of the Salute; I figured out a way to do it that is well within the letter of the law, doesn’t violate the terms of the (idiotic) Digital Millenium Copyright Act, which I’m happy about.. The whole time I was putting the Salute together I of course had a giant dumb grin on my face, listening to all those killer BH records that I never tire of. He “invented” the Stratocaster, as far as I’m concerned, and much else.
Then for the last 20 minutes I let my iPod-on-shuffle finish the show, which always seems to work well, at least for me. And hopefully for you too, and that’s this Saturday at 10 PM New York Time, on WFUV.
