August 2019

Aug 25, 2019

Programming note for Aug 31, 2019. Rollin and Tumblin will not be on the radio on Saturday August 31, 2019 due to the Labor Day Weekend Countdown.

When we do return on Saturday, Sept 7, 2019 we will celebrate 8 great years of Rollin and Tumblin giving you the Blues on 91.3, WYEP!

And how to celebrate our 8th Anniversary? Play some 8-Tracks! Not the clunky tapes, by 8-Tracks we mean songs that clock in at 8 minutes or more. Tune in next time for a couple of 8 minute long tracks every hour from 9pm to midnight as we celebrate 8 years of Blues.

Hey! We're pretty excited about our new specialty show blogs and features. As you will see in the coming days and weeks, you'll now have the ability to check out Rollin and Tumblin "On Demand" here at the website. So, if you have to work or just can't stay up that late you can still catch Rollin and Tumblin every Saturday from 9pm to midnight.

Last night we had some fun celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Woodstock Music Festival. Johnny Winter, Paul Butterfield and a track from Santana, who was paid $750 to perform 8 songs. Less than $100 per song!

We're working on getting the Blues calendar updated again so stay tuned for further info there. As always, there's a ton of great live Blues going on in PIttsburgh!

Here's a really cool cut from a Pittsburgh band that's Not Necessarily The Blues, but this cut is a lot of fun. Check out this new one from The Commonheart:

See ya next weekend on the radio.

Brownout

I've been playing Grupo Fantasma on The Soul Show for a couple of years, but only recently became aware of their latin funk derivative Brownout. Brownout reimagined Public Enemy's work with their own "Fear Of A Brown Planet," and prior to that released two volumes of horn-laden Black Sabbath covers. They very recently played "Brownout Presents Brown Sabbath" at Flood City Music Festival 2019. Judging from overheard murmurings of festival attendees, it was clear that many didn't know what to expect. I did :)

Here's a good NPR article on the Chicano soul movement, including mention of Greg and Beto of Brownout: https://www.npr.org/2019/07/25/744949593/the-many-threads-and-generations-of-chicano-soul-all-in-one-place?fbclid=IwAR3FgLfC6n-ReD9TIEuZgtrAectzoZhW8vJOvWtpH5JciVVsRqQi1-Oiw-E

 

Maceo

I hadn't seen Maceo play Pittsburgh since TRAF about a decade ago. Ardmore Music Hall is just this side of Philly, so the trek was made to see him there. (Note: this is a piece I've been holding onto for a few months.) The Ernest Stuart Trio opened, and you can hear a piece of their "Smells Like Teen Spirit" Nirvana cover. Robert Glasper has permanently affected everyone, and that is a positive statement.

Maceo was tight as always, and he gave nods to co- and departed Funkateers. Also, he presented his daughter as a vocalist. When I saw her, it reminded me of Joya Wesley, who manages dad Fred's affairs with the care of a family member. This has to be a great formula.
