Electric Compost Heap playlist for 04/18/2012

Wed, 04/18/2012

Spring Salutations to all the Composters! This week's show was, well, stranger than some, and not quite as strange as others...we touched base with Howlin' Rain, Patti Smith, Kroke (means Krakow in Polish-their hometown), Polkacide and Levon Helm. Levon, we learned today, is nearing the end of a long journey and a long battle with cancer, so we dedicate this show to him. Coming up in Arkansas as the son of cotton farmer, we figure Levon knows all about compost heaps, electric and otherwise. Thanks for all the great music, man, it sure has been a joy. Here's a clip of Levon from his last recording a couple of years back - enjoy! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pEf-YAaBalE
