Hendrix would have turned 80 in late November 2022. Join TSS for a special celebration, but from perspectives that you might not expect on other shows or stations:
- his leanings toward R&B phrasing, as evidenced in the posthumous Cry Of Love and Rainbow Bridge releases (including my favorite track of all time)
- restless Chitlin’ Circuit work, plus 1963 Icemen
- the requisite Power Trio presentation of Band Of Gypsys
- beautiful and imaginative covers from Chaka, Tuck & Patti, Val Watson, DK Anderson, …
- tributes by Bootsy, Blanchard, and Pittsburgh’s Slam Band & Sam, and Pittsburgh’s Formula412
- fifteen uninterrupted minutes of Electric Ladyland madness to close out

Hey, Mike! I just met your friend Joe and his wife Isa over here in Kauai, Hawaii. They’re vacationing for a bit. He told me about TSS so I’m gonna start listening. Great website you’ve got. Congratulations on your success at keeping this unique African American sound alive for future generations to hear.
Hi! I love my buddy Joe. Nice to meet you, Kusuru. Thx for reaching out.
