KCRW Broadcast #157 for Saturday, March 24, 2012
Fanatics! It's Blues time in St. Louis Missouri! While you listen to our show, that's where I will be. I thought it appropriate that we spend a bit of time with some very pure and direct sounds. You will notice our wonderful fifteen-minute block of St. Louis Blues. I think you're going to dig that big time.
I am sitting in the backstage area at the Michigan Theater in Ann Arbor, MI where last April, I watched The Stooges tear it up in tribute to their departed guitar player, the great Ron Asheton. This is a great theater, great town. I have done a lot of shows in this place. Tonight should be great.
Throwing things a bit out of kilter is tonight's final track by Takehisa Kosugi. Thankfully, this album has been re-issued and is fairly easy to find. Kosugi was a member of the Taj-Mahal Travellers, that's how I first heard his work. Road Manager Ward turned me onto the Catch-Wave album several weeks ago, when we were in Europe. I dug it and figured you might want to check it out.
I figure we should boldly go stratospheric in the warmer months upcoming. I hope you will enjoy the ride!
Dig these Blues and STAY FANATIC!!! --Henry
