Cousin Andy at the helm, with a mini-tribute to Levon, some neo-bluegrass, orchestral-chamber-electro-pop, South African hip hop and more. Dig it.

This Is For You

Violet Execution!!

We have Daniel Topete joining us for his debut, so we’re gonna see how there los angelenos get down!

Johnny Winter called in from someplace on the road on his way to Kansas City. We chatted with Johnny and his producer Paul Nelson. Their cellphone crapped out a few times, but we weaved our way thru the interview. Ah, the beauty of live radio.

Teague Alexy stopped into the studio with his new CD “This Dance” in hand. We played a couple tracks from it plus Teague performed a few tunes live in the studio.

I also played a couple tracks by Leon Helm, who passed away the next day. “Rain Down Tears” was from his 1977 release Levon Helm & The RCO All-Stars, an album I play often on the show. Another track by Levon was “When I Go Away”, an especially moving piece from his Electric Dirt release of 2009.

Also, we played a track from Muddy Waters Woodstock Album, on which Levon played drums and bass.

Next week, we’ll have an interview with Charlie Parr.

In celebration of upcoming Record Store Day, Hymie’s co-owner Laura Hoenack joined Spin with Cyn, spinning songs from artists performing their RSD Block Party. I spun artists performing around town and special new releases.

The Pop Shop is a flutter for Record Store Day 2012! Saturday can’t come soon enough, so in the meantime we’ll play favorites from last year’s RSD, plus recent acquisitions to the Lincoln Terrace music library and new music by the Honeydogs, Shiny Lights, Willie Wisely Trio, Smash Palace and more.

Ted Unseth in the first hour of today’s program.
The play list for this week.
