Soul Station π: L.A. Rock 65-66

Check out my new show tonight for a snapshot of mid 1960s L.A. I feature one great, great band you may not have heard of, The Preachers. Wow are their records a revelation! Other bands included are The Arrows featuring Davie Allan/Davie Allan and the Arrows, Love and the Chocolate Watch Band. Did you know that as the Hogs, an early version of the Watch Band covered Allan's Blues Theme? Well, you can hear them both tonight. It's a rad show!

Soul Station π: Greg Hatza & Lonnie Smith

My new show tonight at the Soul Station is all about the B3. I feature tracks from two records by Greg Hatza that he made at the end of his teens! His fellow players are Eric Gale and Grady Tate. The debut, The Wizardry of Greg Hatza tracks are mono and sound amazing! He has some moves that you will not hear on other organ jazz records from the 1960s, especially on Charlene. In between the two Greg Hatza sets, I spin tracks from Lonnie Smith's debut, also in mono. These feature King Curtis, Blue Mitchell and George Benson! Also in MONO! This is one very sizzling show. So tune in, 7pm tonight. You know where!
