Listen to this show: Pop-up listen Pop-up player!

Artist Track Comments Approx. start time
Big Guitars from Texas  Groovus   Favoriting Theme music  0:00:00 (Pop-up)
The Ventures  Slaughter on Tenth Avenue   Favoriting These guitar masters had a big hit in 1960 with "Walk Don't Run" but we heard a different tune. Hope that's okay!  0:09:45 (Pop-up)
Mary Halvorson with Bill Frisell  Walk Don't Run   Favoriting New album-- "The Maid with the Flaxen Hair"-- is a tribute to jazz guitarist Johnny Smith, who wrote this song.  0:09:54 (Pop-up)
Johnny Smith  Jaguar   Favoriting Johnny Smith (1922 – 2013) was a jazz guitarist. Most of his best known tunes were covers'-- "Walk Don't Run" & "Jaguar" being the exception. Stan Getz plays sax on this number.  0:10:03 (Pop-up)
Jimmy McGriff  M.G. Blues   Favoriting A McGriff original, from his first album: "I've Got A Woman" (Sun Records, 1963)  0:10:11 (Pop-up)
Friends of Dean Martinez  El Tiradito   Favoriting I love this band; I'm sucker for steel. El Tiradito is a shrine in Tucson.  0:14:43 (Pop-up)
Booker T Jones featuring Lou Reed  The Bronx   Favoriting From "The Road from Memphis" (Anti/2011)  0:17:12 (Pop-up)
Booker T Jones  The Vamp   Favoriting From same album, no Lou though.  0:21:54 (Pop-up)
Bobby Darin  Me & Mr. Hohner   Favoriting I remember Bobby Darin, first, as a pop singer. "Splish Spash" and the like. Then a Vegas-style crooner. This song is from 1969; he obviously got stoned and this is the result.  0:25:11 (Pop-up)
Bettye LaVette  Love Made a Fool of Me   Favoriting Recorded in the early 60s. Found on a Sundazed collection of her songs: "Your Duty" (2009)  0:33:31 (Pop-up)

Christine Santelli  Lazy   Favoriting Bettye LaVette recently covered one of Christine's songs. This one is from her solo album: "Dragongly" (2011). Christine is a longtime Hudson County musician; I used to go see her play in Hoboken in the 90s.  0:39:20 (Pop-up)
Karen Dalton  How Sweet It Is   Favoriting One of the hidden treasures of the 60s, Karen Dalton played the Greenwich Village scene with Dylan and Fred Neil and others. She died a while back but check out her work.  0:41:25 (Pop-up)
Rosalie Sorrels  I Remember Loving You   Favoriting Another under-appreciated folkie. This song was written by U Utah Philips, the golden voice of the great southwest. At least, that's what Rosalie called him.  0:45:30 (Pop-up)

NRBQ  It Was An Accident   Favoriting From "Kick Me Hard" (Red Rooster/Rounder, 1979). While I was on the air, NRBQ was playing downstairs at Monty Hall. I ran down after my show to catch one final song. Wonderful!  1:30:22 (Pop-up)
Skatalites  Guns Of Navarone   Favoriting This is the band's 30th Anniversary Recording, "Hi Bop Ska!" from 1994 on Shanachie. Along with regulars (Tommy McCook, Roland Alphonso, etc) they have help from Steve Turre, Lester Bowie, Monty Alexander, David Murray and more.  1:33:21 (Pop-up)

Jerry Lee Lewis  Don't Let Go   Favoriting This song was written by Jesse Stone and was a hit for Roy Hamilton in 1958. But no one does it as good as JLL. He recorded it in 1965 but this is from his superb 1979 eponymous album.  1:52:00 (Pop-up)

Great to catch you Steve. I don't have WFMU on as much as I used to. Already learned some new facts from you and the show has only begun. Just discovered the BT Jones &Lou Reed collaboration a month ago

Great to hear this!

Thanks for advocating for Caven Point!
