Here are the playlists for the shows of Sept 3 and Sept 10. This week, we'll be continuing our features on The Flamingos, Koko Taylor, and The Four Fellows. We'll also be paying tribute, in recognition of their passing, to two bluesmen.. R.L Burnside and the great Clarence "Gatemouth" Brown, who only two weeks ago was forced to flee his home in Slidell, LA (though his passing had nothing to do with the hurricane).

Friday, September 02, 2005

Although there's little for me to add to what all has been said and felt, I have to pay a respect to the terribly beseiged city and people of New Orleans. We often play and listen to the city's music, laugh about the "bon temps roulez" image that it fosters, and remark about its musical heritage, but the terrible state of its large underclass has been driven home this week as the tragedy among all the other tragedies we've seen. I hope we all can do something to make a dent in the flood of sadness and misery that rise even as the water begins to recede.

Here are the playlists for the last two weeks. Once again, I had a problem with the tapes from the August 20 show, and so there may be some inaccuracy.. I apologize for any that you may notice.
