Lee Hazlewood


Notes on this week’s program:

— This was no ordinary show. The first half was dedicated to the music of Lee Hazlewood, who passed away over the weekend. The second half featured an interview segment with Easy Mark of WPVM’s Afternoon Slacken, which airs on Tuesday afternoons 2-4. The interviewee was, oddly enough, me, since the segment is meant to introduce WPVM radio hosts and their shows. We decided to do the interview live on the air, and he rebroadcast a much better (i.e. edited) version during his show the following week. I hope never to be interviewed on my own show ever again. Very weird.

— On Lee Hazlewood, first some links:
Big fan website with discography: http://somevelvetmorning.net
Another fan website: http://www.pimpadelicwonderland.com/n&l.html
Discography 1, Discography 2

— I didn’t play “These Boots Are Made for Walkin'” because the only version I could find today was Lee’s own version, which is on the Complete MGM Recordings collection, and I just didn’t feel like playing it.

— The people at Warner Bros. need to reissue the Hazlewood stuff they’re sitting on (the Reprise material). Come on, people! Get with it!

— There’s not much else to say. The music speaks for itself. RIP Lee!
