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 behind co-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.
