VINTAGE RADIO VAULTS 489 – STEVE FLY’S SATURNALIA

Fly sez: The last few weeks I’ve witnessed John Sinclair programming spontaneous radio shows across the table from me. John made a number of shows that knocked me off my stool, so I figured it was my duty as DJ Fly Agaric to respond with a festive selection of tunes. The tracks were selected from my LP collection, recorded Wednesday 22nd December 2009 on a H4 Zoom Recorder.

THE FRANTIC ONE! 04 – FUNKY STREET

The late great Ernie Durham is here with the first of five special programs taken from the Vintage Radio Vaults, recorded in the 1990s for WDET-FM in Detroit. When I was growing up outside of Flint, Michigan in the 1950s the Ernie Durham show on WBBC-AM radio was at the center of my musical consciousness; I listened every night for several years and gained my appreciation and knowledge of rhythm & blues from the Frantic One. Our fourth program in this series has recordings by Hank Ballard & the Midnighters, Ivory Joe Hunter, Arthur Conley, the “5” Royales, Jackie Wilson, Wynonie Harris, Lonnie Johnson, Joe Tex, Bob Hopkins, The Charms, Earl Bostic, Marvin Gaye, Redd Foxx, Eddie Floyd, and Mary Wells.
