Wayne Riker: San Diego guitarist and TNJT alum has a new disc out, "Kindred Souls" (SD Troubadour Review), will break news on the upcoming 2014 CD already in the final planning stage, and a unique one-man show in the works, among other New Things!
Ben Wanicur: Another San Diegan, this time a bassist, making new music on his latest release "The Excluded Middle" which he will be releasing at a CD party on Friday, May 17 at Dizzy's San Diego (review and info on CD release show). We'll get to know Ben and chat about all this and more!
The title and theme of my show on Sunday, May 12, 2013 (3-5 p.m. PDT) is “Deja Entendu”. You know that “deja vu” (French for “already seen”) is that strange feeling that you’ve experienced something in the exactly the same way before. “Deja Entendu” is the sense that you’ve heard something before. The theme was inspired by an email I received in February from Erie, Pennsylvania-based jazz guitarist and music store proprietor Jim Lynch. He was listening to the streaming version of my show when I aired pianist Benny Green’s tune, “Benny's Crib”. Until I identified the artist and the track, Jim assumed that he was listening to an interesting arrangement of the Jimmy Giuffre composition, “Four Brothers”.
Kristin Korb! In Hour 2 of the New, this Bassist, Vocalist, Composer, Former San Diegan, International Mom, and MORE has a new disc out and is coming West to play it Live...and we'll chat about all that and MORE!

Like many people, and perhaps a little more than most, I was deeply saddened to hear of Richie Havens’ passing on Monday, April 22. I can remember when 72 seemed ancient, but today when someone, especially someone of note, passes away at that age it seems premature. I knew that Richie had been fighting health problems because several years ago I contacted him to see if he wanted to participate in a theatrical concert (Primal Twang) I was co-producing here in San Diego. He wasn’t feeling well at the time, and it didn’t work out. I didn’t speak with him again.
