Playlist 2-3-17

RadioCPR2After a healthy half of a Firesign Theatre album, it was all about the plane crash, 58 years ago today, that killed Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens and The Big Bopper, including a number of covers of Holly songs by artists from Lou Reed to Marshall Crenshaw, who was also playing in the area tonight.

Rhett Miller, who also was in town tonight, was heard from, and there was new music from Alejandro Escovedo, Allen Toussaint, The I Don’t Cares and Charles Bradley.

Closed out with a bunch of music from Dave Davies, the kid brother guitarist of the Kinks, who hit 70 today.
