The crickets started chirping this week, Residents. With that in mind, we encourage you to seize the day and listen to this entire show! We’ll celebrate the twin August/Arkansas/Jimmy birthdays of McCracklin and Witherspoon with a lengthy set of music recorded for the Modern family of labels. We’ll also hear new music by Robert Cray and preview this weekend’s show by Tab Benoit.
A boogie-heavy oldies set and some Skalphabet Soup in the first hour, a mostly all-new second hour in which Sherwood discovers Etienne Charles (listen for Len ‘Boogsie’ Sharpe on Mr. Charles’ second spin) and in the 3rd hour, 2 great bands that go great together_ The Specials, The Beat and (the together part) The Special Beat!
