  • Thanks for the message Ben - here's the link to last night's playlist below. I think that was Mats Gustafsson on baritone sax that you heard near the end and then Arrington de Dionyso after that. My usual show is Monday 10am-noon Central Time

  • Tim. Last night (3/28/13) around 1 am LA time my girlfriend and I were Venice Beach listening to your show. I loved the three songs you ended your show with. The first one sounded like a whining dijurido. I'd love a playlist with those and similar artist. African musicians? One from Etheopia, and another "Mali" - something... Thanks. Love you show. Ben

  • Hi Dan,
    Thanks for the message.
    Hunter was dating a bandmate of mine when he died. Lindy was in that video too I think. Another bandmate of ours made a recording of the two of them that I really like - my current band also covered one of his songs recently. I first knew Hunter from the Highway Matrons.
    Seems there's a space limit here - feel free to email back...
