Hell's Kitchen Radio #487: Black Summertime
August 29, 2022 8:00pm
No guests, new music, you, me, these turntables, this microphone. Tonight I was feeling a bit peckish and chose a variety that has moved me lately. New releases from Kikagaku Moyo, Mavis Staples and Levon Helm, and King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard.
I just want to let the music do the talking here. It was also the 50th anniversary of what I consider to be one of the top five all-time great Grateful Dead shows: August 27, 1972. There is a lot I can say about this amazing show, but I think you should just go listen the very well produced Deadcast and let Jesse Jarnow tell you all about it. I shared the 18 minute "Playin' in the Band".
I was going to follow up the epic Dead jam with a new 18 minute King Gizzard track, but I was running out of time. Dang. I would have done it too. And the story of the new KGLW track "The Dripping Tap" is really one to read about. I look forward to sharing the track with you soon.
Check out the playlist below and click the link above to check out the show.
Don't forget to tune in starting Mondays at 6PM for my weekly Live Bootleg Bonanza, where I share full live shows from my vast live bootleg library. I have thousands of shows from hundreds of artists, across dozens of genres. So much good stuff to check out on Radio Valencia Monday nights.
