Listen to this show: Pop-up listen Pop‑up player!

Artist Track Comments Approx. start time
Big Guitars from Texas  Groovus   Options Theme music  0:00:00 (Pop‑up)
The Ventures  Slaughter on Tenth Avenue   Options These guitar masters had a big hit in 1960 with "Walk Don't Run" but we heard a different tune. Hope that's okay!  0:09:45 (Pop‑up)
Mary Halvorson with Bill Frisell  Walk Don't Run   Options New album-- "The Maid with the Flaxen Hair"-- is a tribute to jazz guitarist Johnny Smith, who wrote this song.  0:09:54 (Pop‑up)
Johnny Smith  Jaguar   Options Johnny Smith (1922 – 2013) was a jazz guitarist. Most of his best known tunes were covers'-- "Walk Don't Run" & "Jaguar" being the exception. Stan Getz plays sax on this number.  0:10:03 (Pop‑up)
Jimmy McGriff  M.G. Blues   Options A McGriff original, from his first album: "I've Got A Woman" (Sun Records, 1963)  0:10:11 (Pop‑up)
Friends of Dean Martinez  El Tiradito   Options I love this band; I'm sucker for steel. El Tiradito is a shrine in Tucson.  0:14:43 (Pop‑up)
Booker T Jones featuring Lou Reed  The Bronx   Options From "The Road from Memphis" (Anti/2011)  0:17:12 (Pop‑up)
Booker T Jones  The Vamp   Options From same album, no Lou though.  0:21:54 (Pop‑up)
Bobby Darin  Me & Mr. Hohner   Options I remember Bobby Darin, first, as a pop singer. "Splish Spash" and the like. Then a Vegas-style crooner. This song is from 1969; he obviously got stoned and this is the result.  0:25:11 (Pop‑up)
Bettye LaVette  Love Made a Fool of Me   Options Recorded in the early 60s. Found on a Sundazed collection of her songs: "Your Duty" (2009)  0:33:31 (Pop‑up)

Christine Santelli  Lazy   Options Bettye LaVette recently covered one of Christine's songs. This one is from her solo album: "Dragongly" (2011). Christine is a longtime Hudson County musician; I used to go see her play in Hoboken in the 90s.  0:39:20 (Pop‑up)
Karen Dalton  How Sweet It Is   Options One of the hidden treasures of the 60s, Karen Dalton played the Greenwich Village scene with Dylan and Fred Neil and others. She died a while back but check out her work.  0:41:25 (Pop‑up)
Rosalie Sorrels  I Remember Loving You   Options Another under-appreciated folkie. This song was written by U Utah Philips, the golden voice of the great southwest. At least, that's what Rosalie called him.  0:45:30 (Pop‑up)

Rhapsody in Grey   Options

Mid-Morning in Moscow   Options

Great instrumental from "Chandler Travis Philharmonic Blows" (Sonic Trout Records, 2010). Chandler lives on Cape Cod , where I saw/heard this band play last summer. Lotsa fun. 

1:19:06 (Pop‑up)
Chandler Travis Philharmonic  Graciously   Options A clever ditty, written by Chandler & David Greenberger,  1:25:01 (Pop‑up)
NRBQ  It Was An Accident   Options From "Kick Me Hard" (Red Rooster/Rounder, 1979). While I was on the air, NRBQ was playing downstairs at Monty Hall. I ran down after my show to catch one final song. Wonderful!  1:30:22 (Pop‑up)
Skatalites  Guns Of Navarone   Options This is the band's 30th Anniversary Recording, "Hi Bop Ska!" from 1994 on Shanachie. Along with regulars (Tommy McCook, Roland Alphonso, etc) they have help from Steve Turre, Lester Bowie, Monty Alexander, David Murray and more.  1:33:21 (Pop‑up)

Joe Ely  Crawdad Train   Options Joe's band in the 70s & 80s really knew how to rock. This tune is from "Down on the Drag" (MCA/1979). The band includes Lloyd Maines, Jesse Taylor, Ponty Bone and others.  1:49:10 (Pop‑up)
Jerry Lee Lewis  Don't Let Go   Options This song was written by Jesse Stone and was a hit for Roy Hamilton in 1958. But no one does it as good as JLL. He recorded it in 1965 but this is from his superb 1979 eponymous album.  1:52:00 (Pop‑up)
Mamadou Kelly  Tchiokoroba   Options Blues from Mali. From a new CD: "Les Bateaux" (Clermont Music/2019)  1:57:39 (Pop‑up)
