For the new year I thought I would take a time out from new music and delve deep into my music library. I have to admit this was one of my favorite shows to host. Certainly my best of the year. HA! Every week my audience appears to grow. Thanks so much for the support, and please keep tuning in every Monday 8-10PM. Be sure to tell music lovers everywhere!
This year I want to focus on interviewing more bands, so if you’re in a band or know someone who is, please contact me and let’s make this thing happen. I also want to host a special on the history of West African Funk. There’s so much beyond Fela that I really want to share with you. I also plan on bringing back an old favorite which dropped by the wayside: Bootleg Blast! This is where I share my latest live show that I’ve discovered. This will happen in the second hour so stick around. There’s a tasty live treat in this broadcast, actually. Later in the year I’m hoping to also resurrect “Rock Fight”, where I host a 4+ hour live bootleg battle. My buddy, and legendary sound engineer John Karr will try to best me. Let’s see how far he gets. Look for this show sometime this summer.
Finally, it’s time once again for my annual “Run for the Lilies” contest, where you dear listener send me the names of 10 famous people you believe will meet their demise by the end of this calendar year. The only rule: you may not participate in how they meet their maker. Please email your list of 10 names by Sunday, January 29 to firstname.lastname@example.org
I’ll announce the winner of the “Run for the Lilies 2016” on Monday, January 30th. And what a year that was! I’m expecting our winner to possibly have a record number of names on that list. Oy.
