With Ginger Baker turning 75, it seemed like a good time to revisit the music of Cream and Blind Faith. And if you believe that John Lee Hooker’s birthday was in 1920 (as some sources say), then it’s a good time to listen to his music, too! OK, even if his birthday was in 1917, it’s always a good time for John Lee Hooker covers. Round out the show with some Johnny Nash, some indie hodgepodge, and more, and you’ve got something that’ll last! (85 minutes)
