Playlist for 8/26/11: He Was Rock-n-Roll

One of those wild-and-crazy-beginning-of-the-semester meetings made me late for the show, but fortunately Good John was there to blast away with a bunch of his nutty 45’s (thanks, sir, that makes up for skipping out on Andre Williams!). New releases this week from Bobby Marchan, the Bloody Hollies and Henry’s Funeral Shoe and a tribute to Jerry Leiber, who passed away Aug. 22, leaving behindco-authorship of the rock-n-roll bible. Look for Josh Alan Friedman's excellent Tell the Truth Until They Bleed for essential reading on the great songwriter.

Playlist for 8/19/11: Pulling Time With Andre Williams

Other than a few technical difficulties to begin the interview (and a little this-is-really-cool stuttering on my part), talking to Andre Williams was as amazing and fun as I expected! His show at the Cactus Club last night delivered as well. I guess the next time I’ll see Mr. Rhythm is as one of the co-MC’s at this little get-together in Brooklyn in November! Andre wouldn't spill beans on his wardrobe plans for the big event. Last night’s opener Jon Burks also stopped by to play a few songs, and I featured Jack Oblivian’s crazy great new album on Big Legal Mess, Rat City.
