CLA Radio 04/27/18: Pete Ham/Badfinger (hour 1), and Con Artists (hour 2)

What: Today is the anniversary of Pete Ham’s (Badfinger) birth. We will spend the first half of the show first listening to just under a half-hour of biographical material from BBC; then to some of my favorite Badfinger songs. Then, in the second half of the show, we’ll hear various artists doing songs about con artists, swindlers, rip-offs, and the like.

The second half of the show will make more sense if you know something about what happened to Badfinger.

When: Friday, April 27, 2018; 6:00 PM Pacific/9:00 PM Eastern. (We usually start later than the scheduled time, because Generalissimo’s Aftershow generally runs late.)

Where: Duane FM in the Hughniverse.

Spotify playlist: Here. (Material marked with an asterisk is not included in the Spotify playlist.)
