The legendary Zip Caplan (of The Surf Dawgs, The Litter and Lightning) and Jackson Buck joined me in the studio tonight. Zip supplied all the music for the tonights show…enjoy! Johnny Zing of The Zing Rays tagged along. You can hear a tune by his band on the show tonight. Hear The Surf Dawgs here and then join us at Freewheelin’ First Friday at the 331 Club. Joining The Surf Dawgs in a double CD release party will be The 99ers. Always free at the 331…
Finnish-American mandolinist and tango guru Ralph Tutilla joins us in studio with his musical picks. Part two is the regular headphone section of outstanding selections both ethereal and visceral. We close with new classical music from Mats Eden…..his String Quartet Number One featuring the Cikada Quartet.
Thanks again to Ron & Jean of the show formerly known as Radio Rumpus Room for filling in for me last week. Today, Angie Pykonen from KFAI’s In Your Ear sat in with me. We previewed the upcoming Freehweelin’ 1st Friday show at the 331 with some songs by the 99’ers and some of Zippy Caplan’s groups including the Surf Dawgs, The Litter, and White Lightning.
New releases included new one’s from Leon Russell & Elton John, Rick Holmstrom with Juke Logan and Stephen Hodges, Keller & The Keels, The Surf Dawgs, and The 99ers.

Once again we camped out at the Dub Club Tiki Bar for the annual “Echo Beach” dog days of summer special. This is a bit different kind of Echo Chamber — as we actually played some rock ‘n roll: that twangy, instrumental surf rock (from the likes of the Ventures and the Del-Tones). Then, once the martinis were well shaken, we got into some soul and funky R&B. Things were really cookin’ and the Tiki Bar was heavy with kali smoke. So we cooled things down with a variety of lounge, world, and swanky jazz…and a bit of electro dub.
Ian Rans joins us to spin a few of his favorite audio flavors and also give us a little skinny on Drinking With Ian, and it’s big move after 6 years – starting the 7th live – ever other Tuesday night http://www.drinkingwithian.com/
where you can watch it on the web (*if your a cable-less poor person like me who was sure that I’d never be able to see the show – unless I was at Grumpies or on site – BUTNOW I CAN – so can you!!!
while you’re waiting for that – you can listen to this. All Ian – all the time – just the way you like it.
