Today we featured an hour performance of My Brother, from just across the border in New Lebanon, NY. Randy Nelson has one of the most powerful and soulful voices I've ever heard (he was pinning the level meter, even when his mic was turned off), and Michael Gilbert is a keyboard whiz, throwing in bits of Mozart, Leon Russell, and Floyd Cramer at the right times. And the songs are great.
NEXT WEEK: Dennis Watlington, rock and soul integrationist, who will be talking about his new autobiograhy Chasing America, about giving Bruce Willis his first gig, and spinning tunes.
