Marshall has joined Keith Richards, Patti Smith and dozens of other artists in declaring #WeAreNotAfraid to stand against the countless acts of violence, hate, discrimination, and abuse witnessed globally. Check out the “We Are Not Afraid” video here and learn more about the campaign here.
The Bottomless Pit is a weekly roundup of items from my personal record collection, and this week marks the first-ever “Alphabetical Order Edition” of the show; I simply went to the CD shelves, grabbed the section of CDs going alphabetically from BREA to BYR and headed for the studio.
Breau, Brown, Brown, Brown, Jr., Brown, Brubeck, Burtnick, and Butler are just some of the last names of the great recording artistes that we’ll hear on the show… The whole thing went well so I’m sure that I’ll recycle the idea sometime.
That’s the Bottomless Pit, Saturday nights at 10 EDT, on WFUV (wfuv.org).
In my view, one of the most beautiful Rock and Roll records of all is “Suzie Baby”, by Bobby Vee and The Shadows. On the Bottomless Pit, Bobby Vee is held in the highest regard, and so we’ll pay tribute to him this week. He passed away on October 24. Another week in 2016, another tribute to a fallen musical great: it ain’t my fault..
Along with the Bobby Vee tribute we’ll hear excerpts from an “All-Bobby” edition of the show that I did back in April, 2014 which includes music from Bobby Bland, Bobby Hutcherson, Bobby Darin, Bobby Fuller, and many more.
That’s the Bottomless Pit, Saturday nights at 10 EST on WFUV (wfuv.org)..
