But John Lee Hooker recorded in a great many more styles than that over a career that stretched across more than half a century.  [John Dahl - All Music Guide] #PacificaRadio #WBAI #NYC #DetroitBlues #ElectricBlues #innovator #legend

On Wednesday, August 20 starting at 3 am, we will focus on #Comedy.  We will feature some concerts as a tribute to actor/comedian #RobinWilliams.

Over the course of his long and distinguished career, Robin Williams won five Grammys, four Golden Globes, two Screen Actors Guild Awards, two Emmys, and an Oscar, not to mention more than $3 billion in lifetime grosses — not bad for a stand-up comedian who became a household name as the star of Mork and Mindy, a Happy Days spinoff sitcom about a goofball alien.

From the Soundboard is a show that usually focuses on concerts regardless of genre. Artist and/or group perfecting the art of “call and response” with its audience. On Wednesday, April 23, we are will going to focus on the Indo-Jazz-Fusion project called Miles from India.

"It was such a simple concept. Producer Bob Belden (who has directed the Miles Davis reissue series) was talking with Times Square label owner Yusuf Gandhi about Miles’ use of Indian instrumentation during The Complete On the Corner Sessions and wondered aloud what it would sound like if Indian musicians played Miles’ music. Gandhi replied Miles from India, and nearly a year later Belden delivered this brilliant set that not only features a number of India’s finest musicians but a veritable who’s who of Miles’ own sidemen. In perhaps the boldest move, Belden and the musicians looked well beyond Miles’ 1972-1975 sessions with Indian instruments for inspiration, performing tracks from the ’50s, ’60s, ’70s, and ’80s.” [Sean Westergaard - All Music Guide]

From the Soundboard is usually a show that focuses on concerts regardless of genre. Artist and/or group perfecting the art of “call and response” with its audience. On April 2 in recognition of what would have been his 75th birthday, we shall focus on the artist that helped evolve the sound of Soul and Popular music, Marvin Gaye.


"One of the most gifted, visionary, and enduring talents ever launched into orbit by the Motown hit machine, Marvin Gaye blazed the trail for the continued evolution of popular black music. Moving from lean, powerful R&B to stylish, sophisticated soul to finally arrive at an intensely political and personal form of artistic self-expression, his work not only redefined soul music as a creative force but also expanded its impact as an agent for social change. “.
