We got through the busy morning, thanks to Lucy Kaplansky for her time, and to William Franklin, Ryan Horton and Michael Holloway from the McNally Smith College of Music for coming in so early. We also said goodbye to a big star in the world of rock-n-roll songwriting, Alex Chilton, with Box Tops, Alex himself, and the Jayhawks.
If you’re into Spy tunes, then step right up. If organ mit organ is your kinda scene, then step right up. If guys wearing wigs fire your loins, then step right up. Step right up to the radio program that has reached deep into the back rooms of Thrift Store USA to bring you radio happiness.
Eliza Blue was my in-studio guest this morning. She was joined by Mikkel Beckman of The Brass Kings for a live session.
