Alex Chilton Part One

Alex Chilton died Wednesday March 17, 2010. I was saddened to hear the news.

Alex seemed very content with where he stood in music history. While he was a great song writer who never made it BIG, his influence is vastly significant in today’s music. Anyone who is in the know about modern music knows Alex is an icon.

I feel so strongly about the power of Alex’s music that I felt compelled to honor him with an entire broadcast featuring his work.

Listen to this two hour tribute and you’ll understand why Alex will sorely be missed. Thank you friend.

Blue Series and Scalise Part One

Todd Scalise Akashic Field Painting, Acrylic on canvas, 64″ x 43″, 2006

I went and saw the Dex Romweber Duo the other week and it got me back in the mood for some raw rock-n-roll. I purchased their 7” 45 at the show and then started looking online at what else Jack White’s label was up to. Well Jack has a whole series of 7”s that he is producing out of his studio in Nashville and releasing on his Third Man Records label. So I proceeded to buy a bunch of these and to formulate a radio show around them. So then I remembered a conversation with my friend Todd Scalise about the movie “It Might Get Loud” and that Jack had mentioned Romweber as a big influence in that film. So I called Todd up to see if he might do the show with me. So the results is the dirty punk garage blues psychedelic show below.
