The Great High Wind That Blew the Low Post Down – the story told by Bob Beers of his grandfather, George Sullivan, and how he was a seminal figure in the folk music renaissance of the 1960s. An audio story about Roots Music in America.
The first program of 2012..and kicking things off in fine style. Some excellent new tunes from Derajah & The Donkey Jawbone, Hollie Cook, Bandulu Dub meets Rezindrip, Volfoniq, and PhOniAndFlOrE, plus a fine mix of the French LibreCommeLair label catalogue from Lata (out of Santiago, Chile) filling the middle hour of the program.
I spun the Monks and ’60s to present-day garage and garage-punk music as part of KFAI Rocks a week-long event in honor of Gary Burger of the Monks performing 331 Club this Friday. Joe Hastings (The Sex Rays, Hastings 3000) who was a member of the F* Knights when Gary Burger recorded one of their records, joined me spinning Burger/The Monks and favorite early garage and blues songs of the mid-60s.
