Space is the Place on Brian Turner's show Tuesday, June 4th 3-6pm with a visit from longtime Sun Ra Arkestra members Marshall Allen (alto sax) and Danny Ray Thompson (baritone sax)! They'll be playing live, joined by Ed Wilcox on drums and vocals, Jerry Mayall (both longtime members of Temple of Bon Matin) on upright bass, plus electronic music pioneer Charles Cohen. This newly-expanded, active working band has evolved out of Wilcox's five European tours with Allen, a marathon set promised!
In case you missed it, Dave the Spazz (with guests Matt Fiveash and Gaylord Fields) paid tribute to the late George Jones on May 2nd for three hours, featuring hits, more hits, some misses, oddball 45s, live stuff, rare stuff, songs you've never heard of, songs you'll never forget, songs you've heard a hundred thousand times, the songs that smell like the inside of a whiskey bottle, the songs that remind you that's it's 3am and you're talking to a Fred Flintstone jelly bean jar Says Dave: a tribute to the greatest singer living or dead.
