Show #282 - Jody Stephens of Big Star (11/1/16)
Big Star’s first two LPs were full of chiming guitars, heavy drums and melodic hooks, yet somehow both albums failed to meet the high expectations.  Those failures loomed large as Alex Chilton and Jody Stephens went to work on their next project.  Eventually called Third or Sister Lovers, the songs...
Show #281 - Seth Walker (10/27/16)
Remember when an album was a collection of great songs that you wanted to play over and over?  Seth Walker does, and he's recently issued Gotta Get Back, his ninth album, full of his signature soul-blues hybrid.  The new record finds him returning to his roots, enlisting family members to...
Show #280 - John Hall (10/21/16)

Well, they say that everything old is new again - that holds true for Banjo Nickaru & the Western Scooches, who have combined elements of country, bluegrass, western swing, rockabilly, and Dixieland jazz.  The result is an infectious blend of styles that will get you dancing.  They’ve just issued a...
Show #278 - Tiffany (9/22/16)
Singer Tiffany had phenomenal success at an unbelievably young age.  Her debut album went quadruple platinum when she was only 15 years old.  That record yielded back to back number one hits with the Tommy James’ cover “I Think We’re Alone Now,” and “Could’ve Been.”  Other hits followed, including the...
Show #277 - Stephen Bishop (9/20/16)

Seth Walker - Natalie’s - Worthington, OH (11/14/16)

A surprising-for-a-Sunday-night, sold out crowd gathered to hear great music and eat delicious pizza

Gimme Shelter

the stones at altamontThe free concert at Altamont Speedway in California was held.  Headlining were the Rolling Stones, along with Jefferson Airplane, Crosby Stills Nash & Young, the Flying Burrito Brothers and Santana.  The concert will forever be known for the rash of violence that broke out between certain members of the Hell's Angels and the crowd.  One fan, Meredith Hunter, was stabbed to death after pulling out a gun and pointing it at the stage.  Hear the Icon Fetch interview with Sam Cutler, who was the Rolling Stones manager at the time and who helped plan the ill-fated event.
