Sunday Supper: 04/21/19
For Easter Sunday, I wrap up my Golden Anniversary retrospective this week on the Sunday Supper with radio memories of some of my favorite artists who've passed on. There's John Lennon in 1974 talking about a possible Beatles reunion; Lowell George in 1979 explaining how the name Little Feat came about, just two weeks before he died; Jerry Garcia on the Dead and social change in the '60s; Rick Danko singing "Twilight" four months before his death; Dave Carter performing an eerily prescient "When I Go" a mere four dyas before his.
But wait, they say, there's more: Leon Russell, Odetta, and Oscar Brand talking about the young Bob Dylan. And speaking of Dylan, Richie Havens, almost exactly six years after his passing, we hear a colorful story of his performing "A Hard Rain's Gonna Fall" before an anonymous Dylan in the Village.
Join me for the celebration at 90.7/wfuv.org between 5-6 pm. And don't if you miss out t that time, you'll find the show in the archives on the WFUV Weekend Archives.
