Kevin Nutt's avatar View Kevin Nutt's profile Options

Scratchy vanity 45s, pilfered field recordings, muddy off-the-radio sounds, homemade congregational tapes and vintage commercial gospel throw-downs; a little preachin', a little salvation, a little audio tomfoolery.

It was certainly still relevant at 8:01.
Feel kinda priviledged to have lived to see a US president who could go down there in the wake of that crisis and actually deal with it in the vernacular...

Love Mahalia Jackson so.

National Sacred Harp Convention: "... first sung ... in the 1983s." Would that be "in the 1830s"?
Avatar Thu. 7/2/15 8:33pm Pedro G.:

Super show as expected after seeing the Facebook post. Grateful for WFMU, Brother Nutt and our great president. Too bad he can't seek another term. He would vanquish anyone in the clown car.
