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.

Enjoy.

There once was a time when my daughter looked at me like I was a hero. Now she’s 13. Oh well, at least she allowed me to drag her kicking and screaming out of her lair (read: bedroom) to join me in the studio on this fine night. It only took me bribing her with a burrito to make this happen. There was a time when she couldn’t wait to co-host a radio show with me. I guess we all grow up eventually, right? RIGHT?

To my credit, she did acknowledge all on her own, that it’s pretty cool that she’s had this opportunity to be on the radio with me over the years None of her other friends have ever done this before. So there!

Lauson’s musical tastes have grown beyond my tastes, as I’m sure mine did when I was her age. If I recall 13 correctly, I was starting to purchase music on my own on a monthly basis; much of which my father hadn’t ever listened to. So it comes as no surprise that she’s delving deeper into her own interests. And it’s those interests that I encouraged her to share on the show tonight.

Interestingly enough, not only is she into hiphop, but she loves Sinatra and Stevie Wonder, and is discovering more classic soul and funk based on the samples used in contemporary hiphop. We talk about this on the air. It reminds me of how I got deeper into blues, using 60s bands like the Rolling Stones and Eric Clapton as a springboard to discover the originals, which I ended up enjoying more than the covers.

The banter is witty, the music is groovy. The talk about attending concerts, in the second hour, is classic! Much of the music is vocalist-centered as you can see by the playlist below. New music by Ty Segall and White Fence.

Sorry to have missed last week. I just had to watch the Warriors beat up on the Cavs. Thanks to DJ dialashot for taking the controls. I trust he did me proud.

The heat of our studio makes me want to rock out and sweat! Full disclosure: turntable two was out of commission tonight, but thanks to my many years of radio experience I come prepared. I was taught years ago to always have something cued up and ready to go. That’s why I bring my trusted iPod with me just to be safe. Junior DJs take note.

The second hour of the broadcast featured some live cuts, including a new release from the “Sonic Journals” of Owsley “Bear” Stanley, and a 12 minute rendition of “Come in my Kitchen” from Johnny Winter. Also, a new release from Seattle’s The Monkeywrench, featuring Mark Arm and Steve Turner of Mudhoney. It’s a live album released by Valley King Records.

I’m in the planning stages for my next Rock Fight, which will feature myself and recording engineer John Karr. I’m nervous about this one. He’s got more quality live shows that he himself engineered and recorded than all the shows I’ve downloaded over the years. I’m hoping my years of radio experience distract him enough so I can continue my string of Rock Fight wins. Stay tuned.

Enjoy.
