Bottomless Pit – 6/4/16

Published

On this week’s show I do a Thing that I haven’t done in a while, but it’s an occasionally-recurring Thing on the program, called “What Might Cub Play?”. Cub Koda was a great Rock and Roller, great raconteur and music scholar; it was really a bombshell when he “left the building” back in 2000. His health was never good, but having a friend pass away was a rare, unusual experience for me at the time. When I first met him he was hosting “The Cub Koda Crazy Show” on WCGY-AM, somewhere in Northern Massachusetts, and when I do the “What Might Cub Play?” Thing I play records that I either heard him play on his show, or that I think he might’ve played. It was a pretty idiosyncratic show and I try to get into his zone. But this time around I stretch the parameters a bit and play some Bollywood Rock and Roll songs; I’m only guessing, but I think that the wild-assedness of this stuff, musically, and sonically, might’ve bent his ears and mind they way it does mine..
So tune in and enjoy the wild rocking sounds of Herbie Duncan, Kishore Kumar, Freddie and The Hitch-Hikers, Asha Bhosle, Portuguese Joe, Mohammed Rafi, and many more. That’s the Bottomless Pit, Saturday nights at 10 EDT, on WFUV (wfuv.org)…
