It’s beginning to feel a lot like 2016 around here. too many fabulous musicians are passing away.
Tonight I offer my tribute to the great Malcolm John Rebennack Jr, better known as Dr. John, The Night Tripper, who passed away at the tender age of 77 on June 6, 2019. Considering he was born and raised in New Orleans with its amazing culture and rich cuisine, and had a heroin addiction until late 1989, it’s a wonder he lived as long as he did. We’re lucky just to have had him for the time we did.
I start my show with a 30 minute live tribute from a blazing hot show in 1987.
I welcome DJ Doug back into the studio with me tonight. He is starting a new show, Tuesday mornings, midnight-2AM on Radio Valencia. Be sure to tune in. He has excellent musical taste, if I say so myself. I always enjoy training new DJs. DJ Doug is a natural.
