Tuesdays 2pm – 5pm  EST Rules Free Radio With Steve  Caplan

On the next Rules Free Radio with Steve Caplan, we’ll hear tributes and a commemoration. Unfortunately, we’ve lost several people in music in the last week or so. We’ll start with a tribute to Aston “Family Man” Barrett, the prolific bass player with Bob Marley and The Wailers who also did some solo albums and played with many other artists. His work has a distinctive deep, clean, funky bass sound that is the standard of bass rhythm in Reggae and Ska music. Wayne Kramer was a guitarist with the band MC5, and Mojo Nixon was a singer known for his comical songs such as Elvis Is Everywhere. In the second hour, we’ll do a set with music from both of these artists. Beatles and British Invasion fans will want to stick around for the third hour when we celebrate the 60th anniversary of The Beatles’ first American television performance on The Ed Sullivan Show on February 9th, 1964. We’ll hear some of the audio from that performance, other songs by The Beatles, songs they gave to other artists, and a bunch of British Invasion songs that go deeper than the eras’ overplayed hits.

Before that we’ll hear some new music from The Decemberists, Kula Shaker, The Paranoid Style, Frank Carter and The Rattlesnakes, Brigitte Calls Me Baby, Papa Schmapa, Alkaline Trio, and Gentleman Jesse. Plus Harry Nilsson, The Beach Boys, Martha and The Muffins, Elvis Costello, and more.
