Melting World 4/2/23 David Lindley tribute


From DJ Ed Roller...

Saturday night at midnight (12-3am Sunday) we deviate from our usual musical strangeness in honor of Radiothon to pay tribute to the recently departed California based iconic musician David Lindley (1944-2023).

Starting in the late 60s with his session work and with the band Kaleidoscope, his music was wide and varied. Among his closest collaborators include Jackson Browne as he was his lead guitarist between 1971-81. Warren Zevon, Ry Cooder, Henry Kaiser, Dolly Parton, Rod Stewart, Linda Ronstadt, Crosby, Stills and Nash and many more utilized Dave’s unique instrumentation on their recordings.

We will play 2 long sets dedicated to Dave’s solo work including an acoustic set featuring his work with Jordanian percussionist Hani Nasar along with a high energy electric set with his band El Rayo X and a few surprises along the way. In the psychedelic segment we will be playing 2 sets from the big San Francisco bands of the late 60’s and 70’s. Starting the show a set of acoustic tunes I love, keep an ear open for Mr Dave on the tune he is best known for.
