CLA Radio 12/09/16: Dan Hicks


Yes, I know, Tribbles–another single artist show. But hey, Dan Hicks & His Hot Licks loomed large in my teenage years. So there.

What:  A tribute show to the lately-departed Dan Hicks, with heavy emphasis on my two favorite albums of his: Where’s The Money? (1971) and Striking It Rich (1972).

When: Friday, December 09, 2016, 6:00 PM Pacific/9:00 PM Eastern.

Where: Duane FM in the Hughniverse.

Spotify playlist: Here, except for two songs from his 1989 Sunday Night gig with the Acoustic Warriors.
