MY 80's show postponed for Gil Scott Heron tribute

Wednesday, 01 June 2011

This past week we lost one the true greats of American music. Gil Scott Heron passed away in a New York hospital, and I cannnot stress enough the importance this man had on my life musically as well as the fact that without his influence on other artist, my show may not exist as it is today. That said, this coming weeks show I had slotted as "MY 80's" will be postponed to pay tribute to Gil. As we speak I am trying to dig up a mid-90's interview I did with Gil in the KDHX studios(boxes upon boxes of cassettes!) It will start at the 3pm mark of the show and @ 3:30 will continue with Gil Scott influnced hip-hop. I hope you will join. I think it's going to be something special.
