The Bottomless Pit With Marshall Crenshaw For November 15

by Marshall Crenshaw

On "The Bottomless Pit" over the years, I've had a recurring feature segment called "A Salute To the Fender Stratocaster." I've also done a salute to the Fender Jazzmaster and two weeks worth of saluting the Hammond B-3 organ. I did a Gretsch guitar night, an all-Mosrite show, and possibly my favorite, a salute to the Vox Continental organ.

In this vein, tonight at 10 will be an "All-Danelectro Edition" of "The Bottomless Pit." Like White Castle hamburgers, Danelectro instruments are cheaply made, cheaply bought, but uniquely effective—and uniquely American.

On this chilly night, Vin Scelsa is hunkering down with what he's calls "a quiet, mostly acoustic show" on "Idiot's Delight"® at 8. He'll feature Bonnie "Prince" Billy, the New Basement Tapes (pictured), Johnny Cash, Maggie Björklund, Annie Ternheim, Simon and Garfunkel and others. Join Vin for a contemplative evening on this last weekend before holiday madness truly sets in.
