Capital Radio, 7-18: Birth, Death, Delfonics

Started with a salute to William “Boogie” Hart, the enduring voice behind the Delfonics, who died last week at 77. Also noted the passing of Happy Mondays bassist Paul Ryder, who died Friday at 58.

But then it was celebrating birthdays of a varied group, from Martha Reeves (81), Brian Auger and Dion (both 83), to Keith Levene (65) and M.I.A. (47). Today was also the anniversary of the births of some artists who aren’t with us any longer: Lonnie Mack (born in 1941), Rolling Stones pianist Ian Stewart (1938) Screamin’ Jay Hawkins (1929) and Nico (1938). 

Ended with some Los Lobos, some instrumentals leading back to the Delphonics, and a long newly-released Neil Young jam. 

Here’s a link to the whole show; the playlist follows.
