The Soul Show 12/3/22: Jimi’s 80th on

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

WZUM 101.1FM Pittsburgh 2-5pm Eastern, 12/3/22

    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.
