Bottomless Pit – 5/28/16

Published

I had a cool and memorable artistic and social experience back in late February when I appeared on the always great and long-lived syndicated radio show “Mountain Stage”. With me on that evening’s program were The Bottle Rockets, a couple of talented young people who call themselves HONEYHONEY, the great Mike Cooley (from the Drive-By Truckers), and the also great Webb Wilder. The program that we recorded in late Feb. was broadcast all over the Country on the last weekend of April, and this Saturday I’ll play a bunch of tracks by each of us on the radio myself, and that’s not all I’ll do!… Tune in or you’ll miss it, and that’d be bad..
That’s the Bottomless Pit, Saturday nights at 10 EDT on WFUV (wfuv.org).

This Saturday night will be yet another “All 45 RPM Night” on the Bottomless Pit, at 10

Because I’ve been running around in 11 different directions this week, this Saturday’s Bottomless Pit will be a “rerun anthology” edition, a dig through the archives.
Pt.1 comes from July 2012 and mostly features the sounds of Blue Cheer. We love them, they were Gods, the original Power Trio; they make Motorhead sound like Muzak (OK, not quite, but anyway..).
Pt.2 is from Sept. 2011, centers around Jeremy Sole’s great remix of D. Bowie’s “Golden Years”, and includes some favorite remixes of Sarah Vaughn, Gladys Knight, etc.
The Bottomless Pit is a “weekly roundup of items from my personal record collection”, and during Pt.3 (from Apr. 2013) I get out my old copy of “The Intruders’ Super Hits” and see if it still plays. It does….
That’s this Saturday at 10 PM EDT on WFUV (wfuv.org)..
