Published

This Saturday night will be yet another “All 45 RPM Night” on the Bottomless Pit, at 10
EDT on WFUV (wfuv.org). “All 45 RPM Night” is a THING that I do on the show, and have done since the show began back in 2005. This time around we’ll hear selections on the Arlen, Mercury, Roulette, Dot, Warner Bros., Paisley Park, and Island labels. So don’t miss it; you’ll be glad you didn’t….

Bottomless Pit – 5/14/16

Published

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)..

Bottomless Pit – 5/7/16

Published

When I arrived on the NY music scene in 1981 I fell into a very cool peer group; there were lots of bands and artistes whose work impressed and inspired me. Ranking high on that list was The Raybeats, and on this week’s Bottomless Pit we’ll acknowledge and celebrate the reissue of their “Guitar Beat” album (out of print since the early ’80s, until now). The Raybeats emerged out of another great NY band, The Contortions, and we’ll hear some selections by them too..
Also, the Bottomless Pit is still in mourning over the death of Prince Rogers Nelson. He’s on the playlist, along with much more.
I hope you’ll tune in on Saturday at 10 PM Eastern Daylight Time, on WFUV (wfuv.org)..
