Roots & Branches 47: Freak Blues

Dominic Trix of KFJC-FM at Foothiils College in Palo Alto Hills CA brought in my old friends Dan Gunning (of WCBN-FM in Ann Arbor many years ago, posing as Nancy Reagan on this soundtrack) and Loren Dobson, formerly of KUSF in San Francisco and fiendish collector of Mackay recordings, to construct a four-hour tribute to the late Steve Mackay, tenor saxophonist of Ann Arbor and San Francisco and a good friend of mine since 1968. I edited the talking but not the tracks to three one-hour programs for the Vintage Radio Vaults and we present them here this month for your edification and delight, featuring recordings made by Steve Mackay from 1966 to the past year, including in the first hour Steve Mackay & The Randoms, Andre Williams, Sigmund Snopek III, The Stooges, ZEV, the Commander Cody Band, the Ralph Shine Blues Band, Carnal Kitchen, the Mojo Boogie Band, and the Violent Femmes.
