New releases by Richard Thompson, Wee Willie Walker, Vanish Valley, and Hot Roux. Cool older stuff by the likes of Graham Parker, Concrete Blonde, Heptones, Dan Hicks, Elmore James, Blues Project, Evis Costello and more. Plus, a couple tracks by Miss Tess & The Talkback – check them out at our Roots Rock & Deep Blues Festival Pre-Party on July 17 at Harriet Brewing.
I presented Miss Tess & The Talkbacks at Roots Rock & Deep Blues Fest, so you know I played some of their music. Also, in the mix was some Charlie Parr, Richard Thompson, Koerner/Ray/Glover, Taj Mahal, Willie Murphy, Commander Cody, Ry Cooder, RL Burnside, Catl., and a whole lot of other stuff.
Bill Batson of the Mighty Mofos, Travis Ramin, and Angie Pykonen (host of KFAI's "In Your Ear") were my guests this afternoon. We played lots of cool tunes, including a preview of the KFAI-Sponsored "Battle of the Garages." Kim from the Pandoras called in. Lots of great music. Fun afternoon. Thanks folks!!
