The Bottomless Pit With Marshall Crenshaw For July 19

One of my longtime favorite musical artistes is the late songwriter and record maker Lee Hazlewood, originator of wall-of-sound type recordings, writer of "Some Velvet Morning," etc. I'd planned to do a full-hour salute to him this week, but now it will be a less than full-hour salute because of two things that must be acknowleged: last week's passing of Charlie Haden and Tomas Erdelyi, aka Tommy Ramone. We'll hear from both of them this week, and next week ... and next week.

I'm back from vacation with sad tidings: Elaine Stritch, Johnny Winter, Charlie Haden and others have gone on to the After Party, my new metaphor for death. Thinking that they're all having fun at the universe's greatest After Party makes accepting their absence here on planet Earth a bit easier. And here's good news: iconic actor Harry Dean Stanton—still with us at age 88 as I recorded tonight's show on Friday morning—has an album of songs he recorded for the documentary film "Harry Dean Stanton: Partly Fiction." Tonight on "Idiot's Delight"® at 8, I play several tunes from the soundtrack of the same name, and I'll go off on a "Don't Think Twice" musical tangent too.

Christian Gregory - FUV Live - 2014

by Rita Houston

UK newcomer Christian Gregory introduces us to his style of old soul music in his American radio debut appearance. Christian's story is just starting to be told. He's from London, raised in Oxford, and is an interesting combination of artist and record label boss. He started his own indie label in London called Movement Records and brought in old friend and musical like-mind Michael Kiwanuka to help with artist development.
