Playlist for 8/19/09: Dead, not gone

I paid tribute to Jim Dickinson, the legendary Memphis musician and producer who passed away at 67 on Aug. 15, in the last hour of my show this week. One hour wasn’t nearly enough time to recognize a man who participated in an amazing amount of great music over the last five decades. I pledge allegiance to indie labels on Zero Hour or else I would have certainly included the Replacements, Rolling Stones and others. For well-done written remembrances of the man, look no further than Chuck Prophet, Eric Ambel, the Hound and Boogie Woogie Flu. James Luther Dickinson's "Production Manifesto" also is essential reading.

To begin the show, I looked back at my recent trip to House on the Rock in Spring Green. New music this week from Joe Henry, the Shazam and Joe Pernice. Next week, my three-hour, I Love My Label tribute to the mighty Norton Records. Three hours into the wild and way out world of Norton Records featuring Hasil Adkins, Link Wray, the Real Kids, the A-Bones, the Flat Duo Jets, the Mighty Hannibal, Roky Erickson, Benny Joy and more! Hunch included.
