October 16th show: This week on Geezer Rock, the Featured Geezers are those long-haired hippies from Springfield, Missouri, the Ozark Mountain Daredevils. [NOTE: This show was recorded before the recent death of Daredevil Steve Cash.] They back once again, and these days their ranks have swelled—there are now 10—count ‘em, 10—riff-defying heroes in the present-day Daredevils. And we’ve also programmed an ensemble of long compositions from Todd Rundgren’s Utopia, Santana, the Ace of Cups, and others.
October 9th show: This week, we honor the music of poet and lyricist Robert Hunter, who recently passed away. Hunter is most noted for his collaborations with Jerry Garcia and other members of the Grateful Dead, including “Uncle John’s Band,” “Box of Rain,” “Scarlet Begonias,” “Touch of Gray,” and many others. But he aslo wrote songs Elvis Costello, Bruce Hornsby, Little Feat’s Bill Payne, and Bob Dylan. We’re sharing recent versions of Hunter classics as well as newer songs with a variety of cowriters.
