This week on Kinda Cloudy Radio, we’ve got special guests Justin Rambo Salinas and Tarik Thornton in the studio trading half hour sets of rare ridiculously funky 45s in preparation for Minneapolis’s first Soul Weekender! This set is TOOHOT!!…
The music section of this program (the first 1½ hours) has a single theme: A celebration of the successful rescue of the 33 miners in northern Chile. The last ½ hour of the program presents an interview with Mario Vargas Llosa, winner of the 2010 Nobel Prize in Literature, and a reading, in his own voice, of a small fragment from “Conversación en la catedral”.
Today’s show is very special. We have lost one of our true musical heroes – the King of Rock n Soul – Solomon Burke. We dedicate the entire first hour of the program to Solomon’s recordings on the Atlantic label, 1960-1969. Special thanks to the good people at Rhino for supporting this tribute and for making these amazing records available for new listeners.
