Roots and Rhythms
Wednesday May 23rd, 2018 with Reverential Renny
LINK'S LICKS: The highly influential electric guitar instrumentals of Link Wray & The Raymen. Link was the high prophet of the power chord, combining the root note with the fifth to create modern Rock & Roll guitar. WARNING: "Rumble" will not be played.

Is a feature on Link Wray's instrumental work complete without playing "Rumble"? Tune in and find out. If you like instrumental music you are going to love CKCU's latest show, "SLEEPWALKING", hosted by Jason Andersson and broadcast on alternating Thursday's at 10:00 PM. "Sleepwalking" features NOTHING BUT INSTRUMENTALS.
