Wax! Crackle! Pop! #60: Cocker Power with Bob Reed

Monday, March 30


The pride of Antioch, CA. Guitarist and singer, Bob Reed (Overwhelming Colorfast, Oranger, Titan Ups), is our guest. Bob brings in some of his favorite records and we discuss some of his fond musical & touring memories over the years, which includes everyone from Joey Ramone to Lawrence Welk and Wesley Willis.

However, happening on Friday, Apr 3, is one of Bob’s dream shows come true. He and about 20 other fellow SF musicians take the Great American Music Hall stage (in San Francisco) to play a live tribute to Joe Cocker’s classic album, Mad Dogs and Englishmen. Bob even shares a few bars live on the program, demonstrating the “Cocker Power”. Titan Ups drummer, Dave Leonard also joins!
