We tuned into to WKCR's Bach festival yesterday to listen while unwrapping presents and the DJ must've got stuck in the bathroom because for about 10 minutes, all we heard was the needle thwacking against a record's center label. At least they were playing vinyl!!

Hey hey, doca!

This set is a good example of a marriage of things that seem very different but go well together. For example, my wife and I don't like each other, but we've been married for over 20 years.

Happy Friday. Christmas on the Isthmus was quite nice. No snow but clear skies.
Avatar    Fri. 12/26/14 10:30am Doug Schulkind:

Mike Osborne is one of my most favorite musicians. A monster improvisor with the blast-furnace heart of a genius too hot for this world. Sometime time around the early 1980s, Osborne fell off the edge of the world and no one knew where he went or why. He had had terrible drug and marriage and mental health struggles, but still, his disappearance was a complete mystery.

In 2007, I met a fellow who tracked Osborne down to an in-patient psychiatric facility where Osborne had been living for many, many years. This fellow met with Ossie and took his picture. Here is a before and after:

On odd occasions, Ossie would play his sax for fellow residents and staff—and no one knew the genius artist that lived among them. (Undoubtedly, Ossie no longer played with anything remotely like the ability he had once had.)

When Ossie died, I had that fellow who re-discovered him on with me on my show. Here's the playlist from that incredible show:

Keep resting in peace, dear Ossie.
