Last night on Zoe B's show she played some songs that a friend of hers who has passed on had introduced her to...people need to stop dying, we've had enough of it!

I'm for a moratorium on premature deaths.

Another great jam from someone I'm not normally a big fan of...it's reminding me I should call my buddy who's a huge Zappa fan who I haven't talked to in a while!
  Mon. 1/15/18 12:20am Agent Peter:

Very nice this. Just pre-Napoleon Murphy-Brock & George Duke. Can hear some echoes of Chunga's Revenge in there.

Looking forward to an interesting set.

There's a great Charlie Rose Show that featured Trey Anastasio for the full hour. He talked (at length) about his two favorite and most influential guitarists Frank Zappa and Jerry Garcia.

  Mon. 1/15/18 1:58am KevInNorfolk:

But it is a sublime to catch your show in real time. Was always a nice treat if I could make it till midnight on a Sunday, and when I did it was usually not fer long.

Just read this article today about Ezra Feinberg’s latest music. I remember hearing “Experience Near” on this show, and loved it! Can’t wait to hear the new music.
  Mon. 1/15/18 2:03am BEAVO:

That was a week before the run at the Fillmore West and they put that box set out on incredible set

Jeff - ever get into Michael Hedges?
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 1/15/18 2:43am Jeff Conklin:

I think I tried one Hedges record but wasnt feeling it. Should probably revisit....
  Mon. 1/15/18 2:47am Mark R:

I have one called "Live on the Double Planet" that I like a lot.
Avatar Mon. 1/15/18 2:49am AdamFromOldeKenzo:

I've just heard Bob Desper for the first time I know of, earlier this week! COOL.
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 1/15/18 2:49am Jeff Conklin:

Crosby really likes Hedges and Crosby's tastes are terrible so I'm unsure...
  Mon. 1/15/18 2:53am KevInNorfolk:

Give another try, Jeff. Live from the Double Planet, as Mark R mentioned will probably do you right.

The Oracle is another good'n
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 1/15/18 2:58am Jeff Conklin:

I will. thanks. Be well, everyone....
