1/11/2012 Freewheelin'


Thanks to David Cummings, host of KFAI's Rockin' In Rhythm for sitting in with me this afternoon.

It was part 2 of our 6th annual "Dearly Departed" show in which we pay tribute to and play music by artists who passed away last year. Part 1 aired on David's show on Monday (also available on the archives).

We only scratched the surface of artists who passed away last year, but we were able to get in a variety of genres ranging from rockabilly to reggae, rock and blues to twangy stuff and New Orleans.

Want to listen to the show? Drag your cursor to the sweet red lips above and away you go.
