Jackson and the ladies this afternoon. Angie and Sweet Mama J, I was in good hands. Sweet Mama J came in to talk about her gig this Saturday night at Lee’s, opening for Dave Gonzalez & The Stone River Boys. She also sang with Wanda Jackson tonight at Xcel Energy Center, opening for Adele.

Second hour was devoted to music featuring Mark Volman and Howard Kaylan, a.k.a. Flo & Eddie as either lead or backup singers. We played some of their solo material, Turtles songs, Zappa, T. Rex, Stephen Stills, Mothers….even a little bit from their old syndicated radio show. Flo & Eddie will be appearing at the State Fair Monday night, rain or shine.

Hit “More” to check out the playlist and listen to the show via the archive.

Thanks to Louise Dillery who subs for Caryl tonight and M.J. Gilmore who is the engineer.
Tonight recalls the Liberation of Paris with music of the period and an eye-witness account by Louise, who was there celebrating and taking cover behind a statue of a lion, as Nazi snipers made a last stand.
