Please join me if you can for an extra-extra super-special edition of the Bottomless Pit, this Saturday night on WFUV. You’ll hear a bunch of artful and superb music from the great Chris Stamey. Chris is a longtime friend of mine, and I go almost all-in for cronyism on the show, with about 45 minutes worth of Chris, along with various collaborators, and of course with The dbs (!!!)… This stuff will be good medicine for your spirit, and that’s the Bottomless Pit, Saturday night at 10 EST, on WFUV (wfuv.org)..
Gosh, here it is, the last month of 2016. December 2016 marks the end of, really, lots and lots of things.. This week’s Bottomless Pit will be a musical year-in-review, recapping some sounds and events that the show took notice of during 2016. And I also do some bingeing on (1) James McMurtry, one of the best there is; his stuff is especially right on time these days, and (2) The artist known as Madlib, a 21st Century musical genius..
I think I played an AC/DC record too, I’m pretty sure. Tune in and find out, and that’s The Bottomless Pit, at 10 PM EST most Saturdays, on WFUV (wfuv.org)..
This week’s Bottomless Pit brings in the Holiday Season with a rerun. Back on January 19, 2013 I devoted an hour to the music of the great, and now late, Mose Allison; on Saturday we’ll hear that show again. Mose passed away on November 15, four days after his 89th birthday (and my 63rd). It’s funny but some of the songs that I played on this three year old show sound like they’re exactly right on time for this current moment in History. I just think that Mose Allison was one of the best ever. In addition to Mose himself, we’ll hear his songs performed by Blue Cheer (of course!), Van Morrison, The Clash, and many others. AND as an added bonus we’ll hear a couple of beautiful selections from the great Amy Allison.
No matter what happens this will be, definitely, my last tribute-paying exercise for 2016. Enough is too much..
I hope you’ll join me at 10 PM EST, on WFUV (wfuv.org)..
