CLA Radio 12/29/17: Rick Danko

What:  In honor of the anniversary of Rick Danko‘s birth, a stroll through mostly material by The Band, with an emphasis on stuff that Rick sang primary vocal on. (Although Levon figures heavily vocally in a few, not surprisingly.)

Rick wasn’t the most technically proficient bassist you’ll ever hear, but he was a giant as far as I’m concerned. A huge influence on my playing, although he bears no blame for me having been a pedestrian bassist.

When: Friday, December 29, 2017; 6:00 PM Pacific/9:00 PM Eastern.

CLA Radio 12/15/17: Atlantic Records

What: Atlantic Records co-founder Ahmet Ertegun died 11 years ago yesterday, so I thought we’d take a stroll through the fabulous music that the label put out during the 1950s and 1960s.
