Playlist, August 28th, 2011

No. It was too dangerous to leave the house during Irene, but I did have some good stuff planned for you – some old stuff, some new stuff, and a crunchy episode of "Today in Jam Band History." I can tell you that after weathering some hairy thunderstorms in the Radio Vibes trailer, and driving to WPKN after a few nasty snowstorms, it was nice to be at home for this most recent weather adventure.

Here's hoping we are done with the severe natural phenomena so we can spend next Sunday together. I'll have an interview with Roy Jay (of the Roy Jay Band), and September 4th in Jam Band History. Don't forget, I owe you that "Big Railroad Blues" from 7/21/83 that I had to cut off at the end of the show last week.

The Sunday Brunch Concert schedule is resuming September 11th with a great lineup of shows. Check the details here. I hope you have an easy clean-up and that your dwelling is good shape.

The WPKN High-Rollers Ball

Apparently there was some kind of fancy reception for "major donors" to WPKN the other night. I'd tell you more, but like most of us who actually do the radio programs at WPKN, I wasn't invited. Apparently a few elite members of the volunteer staff and the paid general manager met with the well-heeled listeners, who were then given a tour of the run-down studio we used to call home.

Interview with Jefferson Waful

I had the chance to speak with Jeff Waful last month when Umphrey's McGee played at the Oakdale Theatre.

Here's some of the psychedelic janitor's wall painting.

You can watch his video series "Jeff Waful +1" over at Relix.
