More Show Photos: Del the Funky Homosapien – 6/21

Well, folks, I am not going to rehash the details of this great show because AC Hawley already wrote a great review that you should read…here.

When I’ve collected enough interesting records together to fill a radio show, I lug the vinyl to the IMU for a radio show. Someone who spends time on EBay and Discogs searching for records, who spends hours […]

Ed Gray dropped by Little Village Live last week to play us a few songs, because that’s just the kind of guy Ed Gray happens to be. Music Editor Kent Williams recently wrote a review of Gray’s newest release, Old Bending River, which can be found here. Nobody writes them like Williams, so I’m letting […]
