Both Kinds Of Music
Wednesday June 5th, 2019 with Dick Altavista
RIP Roky Erickson, Leon Redbone And Gary Stewart

Roky’s Obit in the New York Times Leon Redbone’s obit In The New York Times Gary Stewart changed my life with his work at Rhino Records. Rhino is the best reissue label ever. Gary was responsible for the labels loving perfectly curated approach. Rhino also issued the first Beat Farmers record. I can vividly remember putting the needle down on this LP in a Brampton basement in 1986. Thanks Gary! Gary’s obit in The Los Angeles Times
