Today on the Rockhouse, we pay tribute to one of the truly great artists in the pantheon: Howlin’ Wolf. As we mark this, the 100th anniversary of his birth, we focus the playlist on his early recordings made with Sam Phillips at the Sun Studio. A note of thanks to the folks at Opus 19 Music for giving us permission to indulge in this extended throwdown.
To paraphrase Robert Duvall, we love the smell of vinyl in the morning. Hotpants is in the house today to preview their record party at the Bedlam coming up on Saturday. Also, during the 8 o’clock hour, we welcome Secret Stash Records in to the studio for conversation about their newest projects – Gospel Funk and soul music from Peru! Great listening, brought to you by real, live d-jays!!
