This week we observe the passing of saxophone great Red Holloway, as well as celebrate the re-issue, by local label Secret Stash, of a long forgotten album of mid-70’s afro-beat by London-based African ex-pats Afro Funk. Also, a taste of the just issued compilation of Brooklyn/NYC funk & soul Original Raw Soul III.

Moondogs 88 on Show #88 – What a Coincidence!

I didn't realize it until now that the Moondogs 88 are on our 88th "Live From Studio 5!" show. Count 'em Eighty-freaking-Eight shows in the can. Seems like only yesterday…..

And what a fine job they did.

Austin, Tx. roots-rocker, songwriter extraordinaire Randy Weeks joined us in the studio this afternoon.

After chowing down at a local pizza establishment last night, we led Randy to our basement, where the cool music is stashed. We turned him loose with the collective goal of picking music to play on today’s show.

Randy picked most of the songs aired today; Angie and I selected a handful. Although, we all seemed to be on the same page and the music flowed. It was a pleasure sharing our musical journey with Randy.

My guests today in the studio included members of “Que Pasa Minnesota” a live social networking event taking place at Wilebski’s Blues Saloon on Thursdays at 4pm. I was joined by Diana Laredo Satar, Christina Moran and Martha Elena Varela. Their message: that their event showcases Hispanic/Latino Flavored Productions with an Essence of Multiculturalism.
