Come join us on Beyond Beyond is Beyond on East Village Radio today from 2-4pm ET.
We’ll be playing prime cuts from the new Meat and Bone album and generally fucking around.
Got to interview another fuckin’ legend on my East Village Radio show yesterday. Jack’s new band is called Spectrum Road and they celebrate the amazing music of the Tony Williams Lifetime. Jack on bass, Vernon Reid on guitar, Cindy Blackman-Santana on drums and John Medeski on keys.
Well, it certainly was a highpoint of my radio career when I welcomed the absolutely legendary and newly-inducted Rock Hall member, Donovan, to Beyond Beyond is Beyond on East Village Radio. Needless to say, I’m a big fan!
Originally I thought this interview would be a phoner, but since Donovan was coming to NYC the week after the Rock Hall induction ceremony, he was gracious enough to stop by the EVR studio LIVE! So I won’t waste much more of your time with my fanboy account and hook you up with the links and vids.
First though, take a peak at this small video excerpt from the interview…
Here are some links to enjoy:
- The full 2-hour BBiB episode, which includes Donovan interview/performance in the first hour
- Jump straight to the Donovan interview/performance
- Photos from Donovan’s visit
And you must see the live “Sunshine Superman” that Donovan performed two feet in front of my face! Surreal to say the least…
Noon to 2pm, Thursday on EVR
Yellowbirds is Sam Cohen of Apollo Sunshine’s most recent musical outlet. Their Royal Potato Family debut The Color came out in 2011 and is a absolutely beautiful collection of songs. If you haven’t heard Yellowbirds, check ‘em out here and then tune in to Beyond Beyond is Beyond on East Village Radio on Thursday from noon-2pm EST, for a live session.
UPDATE: LISTEN TO THE ARCHIVED SESSION HERE!
And be sure to check out the Yellowbirds with our friends, Woodsman, at Mercury Lounge on February 17th…brought to you by our other pals at Dog Gone Blog. (Awesome flier art by yet another buddy, Justin Gabbard)
As a big YES fan, I am proud to say that with this new Steve Howe interview, I have now rounded out (not roundabout) interviewing the classic Fragile and Close to the Edge-era lineup. High school Mike Newman would be very proud. He might even freak out!
So tune in to see if much-older Mike Newman freaks out whilst speaking with one of the greatest guitarists ever in rock music. We talked about everything from Yes to Zappa to Asia to Tomorrow. I may have even convinced him that he should put Tomorrow back together!
I’ll air my interview with Steve Howe on Thursday, January 26th on Beyond Beyond is Beyond on East Village Radio, from noon to 2pm EST. Come join us.
UPDATE: LISTEN TO THE ARCHIVED INTERVIEW RIGHT HERE!
OK, so this WAS Radio Moscow. Led by singer/guitarist Parker Griggs in the center. Drummer Cory Jack Berry (right) and Zack Anderson (left) left the band on January 7th on the second night of their tour after a bit of inter-band violence. Watch the psychedelic soap opera unfold here…
Like psychedelic sands through the hourglass…
So Radio Moscow are slated to play live on Beyond Beyond is Beyond on East Village Radio on Thursday, so we’ll see what goes down. Hopefully they’ll come rock for us. Their new album, The Great Escape of Leslie Magnafuzz on Alive Naturalsound Records, was one of my favorites from 2011.
So tune in the EVR.com on Thursday from noon to 2pm (EST) as Radio Moscow’s new lineup goes BEYOND…
