We’re just 13 days into the new year and so much has happened already but it still threw me for a loop when the news about Ronnie Spector hit as I was about 2/3 of the way into this episode. The instinct to react runs deep in these old bones, so you will hear a spontaneous tribute culled from a variety of sources as it was up to what dear old friend Vin would call “The Radio Muse” to take control. Luckily the “muse” did just that, even with the DMCA restrictions hanging over the proceedings, making even less sense in our now digital world, especially at a time like this. By the time it plays we will have already covered a death OF A FOUNDING member of OF Funk Royalty Parliament, new stuff from Cat Power, Placebo, Alt-J, Fontaines D.C., Eels, Hand Habits, Neil Young and Crazy Horse, Bill Callahan with Bonnie “Prince” Billy, Theo Croker, Jeff Tweedy, Andrew Gabbard and David Byrne with Yo La Tengo interpreting Yoko Ono. We revisit time well spent with Mavis Staples, continue to remember Billy Conway and manage to make all the pieces fit from The Last Poets, Beastie Boys and Allen Toussaint to Mega City 4, Big Star, The Gun Club, Jon Brion, Tommy Keene, Rufus and so much more. Thanks to all for your amazing generosity, there will be another link for donations soon.
