Capital Radio 8-22-22: Elvis to WattStax

Recent D.C. shows by Elvis Costello with Nick Lowe and the Los Straightjackets, and by Blondie with The Damned dominated a chunk of the show.

There were birthdays to note of such notables as Chuck Brown, Debbi Peterson, Dale Hawkins and John Lee Hooker.

Missed Joe Strummer’s birthday by a day, so included him into the party and his “Burnin’ Streets” let to set of burning songs, finally leading to highlights from the WattStax concert held 50 years ago this week at Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum.

Here’s the link to what I played today; the playlist follows:
