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.
