Winters
Saturday Mayhem 26 12PM-3PM
Hosted By Carson Street

Join me for rock and blues time with legendary brothers Johnny and Edgar Winter.

Johnny Winter (1944-2014) described as a "blues guitarist, known for his scorching riffs, flowing white hair and gravelly hard-times voice" was a versatile singer, songwriter and producer. His long career spanned the successful blues-rock albums and live performances of the 60s and 70s to his Grammy Award winning work as a producer for Muddy Waters and continued international touring until his death.

Younger brother Edgar also came blazing out of Beaumont, Texas and is best known for his musical successes in the 1970s with The Edgar Winter Group and White Trash. Adept since childhood on guitar, keyboard, saxophone and percussion, Edgar continues to write and perform rock, jazz, blues and pop music. He has also been involved in numerous film, television and advertising projects.

Tribute to Spiderman Ken Hamilton
Tuesday Mayhem 29 10PM-2AM
Hosted By Ras Babo

Ken 'Spiderman' Hamilton was a DJ here at KFJC during the same time when I was first up and coming here. (1995)

He was only about 1 or two quarters ahead of me, so we were cohorts. During my first few years here, Ken and I formed a friendship and he introduced me to some very influential music for my life.

Ken's legacy lives on as many great titles here in the library bear the Spiderman tag on the review sticker. My goal is to play albums that were either added during his time as Music Director, reviewed by him, or generally bear his characteristic signature. Brief anecdotes about Ken may also be shared by various staff.

Day of Dub
Sunday Junehem 3 - Monday Junehem 4 12AM Sun-2AM Mon
Hosted By Ras Babo and friends

Originally expressed as the instrumental track on the B-side of Jamaican 7" singles, the "version" or Dub has taken on a life of its own. No longer in the shadow of the Vocal or A-side, producers and DJs have made the dub an art form unto itself. Tune in as we set off on a version excursion and play dubwise selection without objection.
