Today was a VERY secial show. I was joined by Sweet Foot, Marni Hockenberg, a blues fan who won Rollin Tumblin in a fundraising raffle. She got the chance to come on the air with me and guest host for the entire two hours. She brought in her own music, which was funky, fine and fabulous. Sweet Foot and I talked about the music, the musicians and the the blues clubs. All the while we danced around the studio and generally acted like the Wild Blues Women we were! The first part of the playlist below reflects Sweet Foot’s contribution to today’s show.
Violin player and vocalist Kip Jones came into the studio to play a couple of songs live and talk about his upcoming CD release. I played music from resident musicians Jo Ann Funk, the Tuesday Night Band, Charmin Shapira, and Media Addicts, as well as classic jazz from Ellington, Art Pepper, Kai Winding JJ Johnson, Mingus, and more….
4/14 in a nutshell…
Ska-de-wah! Maureen and Felicia get Mr. Chauffeured straight to the Vienna Woods to be taught the Ska, and Mr. Bond, James Bond, shows up… you just know there’s a who-o-ole lotta mashin’ goin’ on even BEFORE the party meets up with Baron von Skankin’ Frank… and quite a bit o’ double-dip would characterize what Sherwood B. Funn gets up to by way of kicking off the lounge-y Hour 2! Lounge head-on collides with Ska in the 4@4 Joey Altruda tribute saluting two of his bands, and April’s GotchaSKAvered cover subject Al Capone gets run through in short order by the Hotknives this week… ouch!
