Rekha Basu with Dennis Raimondi

MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR   [1929-1968]

Obvious World ~ Sunday Nights ~ 9e/8c/7m/6p ♥


I get cold. Especially in the winter. Especially in Chicago...which is where I live. And when I'm really bone-chillingly cold I try to fool myself into being warm. I remember sitting on the hood of a gold Dodge Duster on the east side of the Fairfield square (across from JC Penney's). It's a warm summer night. It's 1978. The stores are all closed because it's after nine o'clock. And I'm just sitting there with my buddy Alan trying to decide what to do next on a friday night. That keeps me warm.

RRYou read that correctly. Next week is the seven year anniversary of a show I did as a one-off for James Moore on a lark because I used to listen to a show somewhat like it back in the late sixties. Clyde Clifford, Beaker Street, KAAY 1090 AM Little Rock, Arkansas- that is the genesis of this show. Please email if you have any recollection of listening to that program. It would warm my heart. I am like John Lennon, in that I cannot tell what is real anymore in my mind, but in my heart, I can. I will let you all in on a little secret: all of these shows are about the feel of the drift from one song to the next. The playlists for my show make no sense unless you use feelings as a context. Some songs get played more than once, some just serve a purpose on that given night. So that is enough for this time, check the playlist appearing at midnight tonight, and please enjoy the music. Cool Breeze

Just Out of Silence

G ManIf you are just coming out of silence on the twelfth January, the show begins beside a babbling brook. Soft horns and lilting strings give way to songs invoking subtle feelings. And then, it's back to the regular ass-kickin' show I usually do. I just attended a lecture on the album Sgt. Pepper, so we will hear a song originally meant to be included on that iconic disc. I have three songs by my favorite album artists, brand new tunes by Hiss Golden Messenger, The Baudelaires, and Robbie Fulks, and and old Mason Proffit hit. The 'In Root' portion of the show 4-5 PM includes Taj Mahal, Paul Revere, The Rolling Stones, The Raybeats, and Dion. Lots to love about life. Spend some of it with The G Man.
