On his latest album, Ske-Dat-De-Dat: The Spirit of Satch, Dr. John pays tribute to the one-and-only Louis Armstrong. The album is a collection of 13 songs put through the "Nite Tripper" wash with a little help from his friends, including Bonnie Raitt, Shemekia Copeland, Arturo Sandoval and The Dirty Dozen Brass Band. I had the pleasure of sitting down with Dr. John, here in Studio A to talk about the new album and we’ll hear a sample of the new songs during this episode of FUV Live.

Question of the Day: Play That Funky Music

by Corny O'Connell

Today is the birthdate of Isaac Funk who with Adam Wagnalls gave us Funk & Wagnalls dictionary and encyclopedia. Tragically Funk died in 1912, well before he could get down to the music that would bear his name. By way of historical revisionism, we honor the man (who never went to Funkytown) with your requests. We'll choose the funkiest for a set after 9am.

Here's what we played:

"Get Up (I Feel Like Being A) Sex Machine" - James Brown

"Bring The Funk" - Ben Harper

"Do Yourself a Faver" - Jamie Lidell

Fashion Week is underway in New York City. It's a parade of runway shows, glitterati and glamorous parties. Are you a dedicated follower of fashion? Or more of a JCPennyista? Either way we need a collection of songs for fashion week. Sketch out your ideas below and we'll spin a set after 9am. 

Here's what we played:

Bob Dylan "Leopard-skin Pill-box Hat"

Chrissie Hynde "Dark Sunglasses"
