The Bottomless Pit

The Bottomless Pit With Marshall Crenshaw For October 26

by Marshall Crenshaw

In a rare move this week on The Bottomless Pit, I'll be drawing heavily from some records that have my name on them, like Hillbilly Music, Thank God, Vol. 1, a compilation album that I put together back in 1990 of post-WWII country music from the Capitol Records vaults.  We'll hear some remarkable and vital stuff from Merle Travis, Skeets McDonald, Rose Maddox (pictured above) and more.

The Bottomless Pit With Marshall Crenshaw For October 5

by Marshall Crenshaw

Please join me tonight at 10 for another "All 45 RPM Edition" of The Bottomless Pit. I try not to do it too often, but I do it whenever I can.

Way back, when I first got interested in popular music, 45s were the coin of the realm. My fondness for these things endures. If, like me, you're a fan of The Catalina Six, Traffic, Bobby Adano, Mel Blanc, The Rationals and Lee Dorsey, this will be the perfect show for you!
