Tonight's "The Bottomless Pit" at 10 will include some nepotism, some cronyism, and much more. Rapper and YouTube star Froggy Fresh is my cousin Rita's grandson. His records and videos are much loved by the New York Crenshaws, the Dallas Crenshaws, the Michigan Crenshaws (and all the rest), and by millions of other people too. He'll be heard on the show this week. That's the "nepotism" part.
Then, I went to my post-office box one day two weeks ago and it was stuffed full of CDs by some of my favorite recording artists who also happen to be friends of mine: Bill Lloyd of Nashville, Viktor Huganet of France, and the great Scott Morgan of Ann Arbor. They will all be heard on the show—there's the "cronyism" part. Finally, there was also a CD in my mailbox that day by guitar genius Toulouse Englehardt, who I've never met and I'm not related to. Toulouse and the now, sadly, late, Don Covay are the "much more."
