It was another great night on WRFB: Radio Free Brooklyn. I kicked off another show of Covers that I love. We have a little Prince, a little Kay Ashley and I even threw in Franz Ferdinand. It's never a dull moment at WRFB.
Before we get to the playlist for tonight I want to let you all know that I am going to be part of two amazing shows this weekend. Garry "Starchild" Shider, guitarist for Parliament-Funkadelic passed away in June. The Black Rock Coalition and Sweet Relief are hosting tribute/fundraiser Rest in P: A Salute to Garry Shider, for his family on Saturday July 10th at the Multimedia Arts Center in Bloomfield, NJ and on Sunday July 11th at B.B. King's in NYC. Besides myself there is an amazing lineup of artists on the bill including Living Colour, Blackbyrd McKnight, Bernie Worrell, Sophia Ramos, Dean Bowman, Jimi Hazel, Lady Miss Kier, Imani Uzuri and many, many more. You do not want to miss this and you have two chances to be there. For tickets and more information check out www.themmac.net (for the NJ show) and www.bbkingblues.com (for the NY show).
Thanks everyone and have a great rest of the week. Remember you can find me at WRFB: Radio Free Brooklyn Every Tuesday from 7-11pm. Please follow WRFB on twitter @radiofreebklyn. It's a great four hours of music. Don't miss it!
