The Soul Show Crosses Boundaries

The Soul Show crosses boundaries the way musicians do, especially when there’s an important story around it. When I selected jazz drummer Kassa Overall’s album “I Think I’m Good” as a 2020 Top Ten Album

, a certain track contributed to that decision. I didn’t realize at the time that it was a reimagined Phil Ochs’ composition made famous by the great sixties folk singer Joan Baez. A college friend and TSS listener pointed out the connection. Baez’s 80th birthday is on January 9th, and I’ll tell you more during the The Soul Show, WYEP, Saturday 2-5p Eastern.
