If you are wondering who says, “Could you play a Led Zeppelin tune on this?’ on this episode, well, wonder no more. It’s Chris Ferrera. The former Richmond resident put together a segment for The Signal (Saturdays, 12PM-7PM, on Baltimore NPR station, WYPR 88.1 FM) about Baltimore’s premier audio savant, Peter Blasser. The guy makes all sorts of instruments using just about anything he can get his hands on and the show is well worth a listen if you are interested in unique musical inspirations. I used (and remixed) the promo teaser Chris sent out before the program originally aired.
Lost in the sickening barrage of news regarding Michael Jackson’s death (not to mention Farrah Fawcett, Ed McMahon & the false reports of Jeff Goldblum’s passing), Sky Saxon, founding member and lead singer of The Seeds (best known for the garage rock standard, “Pushing Too Hard”) passed away at the estimated age of 63. He was one of the good ones.
And as is the case with all good people worth remembering, he refrained from having sex with children.

Now here is a trend I’d like to see continue.
