Well, Here Goes . . .

Hey y'all,

I've been threatening myself to do this for a while and now it's all up and running (despite some technical difficulties).

I've been doing various radio shows to the Greater South Side of Chicago for years on WHPK 88.5 FM Chicago
, and have re-launched the show as "From the Dark End of the Street." Taking the name (obviously) from the Chips Moman-Dan Penn composition first (and best) done by the unequalled James Carr, and later covered by a variety of artists from California Hippies to Country-politan Duets to 70's Hit Makers to Group Harmonizers to Indie Rockers. The heroes of the music of the Great Southland--from Muscles Shoals to Memphis to Nashville to Macon to Austin to Lafayette, Louisiana. Some shows will have vague themes, but most of all the theme is gonna be the music, with a little bit on content thrown in for knowledge's sake. 

I do a new show (just about) every Friday morning from 10:00-11:30am. You can tune in on-line at the above link, or just subscribe to the podcast which I'll attempt to update every Friday afternoon.  Hopefully I'll be beefing up this blog with links, commentary and other stuff, but first things first: The Music.

Thanks for tuning in. And check out the podcast.
