Hosts Andy Kahn and Scott Bernstein take us through an abbreviated version of “The Rundown” in which they discuss the start of a pair of interesting tours as well as big news from Fleetwood Mac and a summary of tour and festival lineup announcements. Then, David Onigman joins in for the launch of “Mailbag” as AK, ScottyB and DaveO respond to a batch of questions from our listeners.
Then, DaveO chats with G. Love for our initial “Worst Show Ever” segment. G. Love tells the tale of an acid trip gone wrong in 1994 and then shares his Woodstock ’99 experience. The segment ends with the Philadelphia native treating us to a performance of “Cape Cod Winter Blues.”
ANTI- Records is the sponsor of Episode 10 of The JamBase Podcast and one of the label’s latest releases is No Mercy In This Land, a collaborative album featuring Ben Harper and Charlie Musselwhite. Today’s episode rolls on with the deeply personal track off the LP “The Bottle Wins Again.”
Episode 10 concludes with a new segment entitled “Musical Mentors” featuring guitarist Eric Krasno. Kraz chats with ScottyB about the figures in his life who helped guide his career and the artists who influenced him. Eric talks about the musicians in his family, coming together with the members of Lettuce in high school and the guidance of famed composer and multi-instrumentalist Yuseef Lateef. Other topics discussed include Kranso founding Soulive with the Evans brothers and the influence of John Scofield.
