The Remembrance Issue - Tributes to Charles Stepney, Tom Verlaine, and Burt Bacharach.
With so many icons leaving us at an alarming rate, we can barely keep up with all the tributes. And this week, even though we had just recorded a solid three tributes to the long gone soul producer and arranger Charles Stepney, the more recently departed legendary composer Burt Bacharach and Television's visionary co-founder, Tom Verlaine, we got late word that Trugoy the Dove from De La Soul, a/k/a David Jolicouer, had passed (so we'll have a feature on him next time.) Our two Verlaine tributes come via Matt Jencik from Reckless Records in Chicago, and Why Patti Smith Matters author Caryn Rose. Mr. Stepney is remembered by his three daughters, Eibur, Charlene, and Chanté, and Paul's brother Mike Myers shares personal memories of working with "Santa Monica Burt" Bacharach on Austin Powers and beyond.
And RSD co-founder Carrie Colliton checks in from Raleigh, NC. For the latest Record Day News, go to RecordStoreDay.com.
Sponsored as always by Dogfish Head Craft Brewery, Tito's Handmade Vodka, and Crosley turntables.
Written, produced, recorded, engineered and hosted by Paul Myers, who also made the theme music.
