Silver Nine Volt Heart for Sept. 14, 2023, starts with the great Link Wray

In today's Silver Nine Volt Heart you will hear the sounds of Link Wray, The Wailers, Nashville Honeymoon, and much more.

Wray's performance of "Apache" opens the show. Wray (1927-2005; photo shows cover of his The Pathway Sessions album) is in the Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame, which says "If there is one musician with an overriding influence over all rock guitarists – from 1960s British rock to 1970s punk to 1980s hardcore to 1990s grunge – that musician is Link Wray. Every young rebel who has donned a leather jacket and slashed away at an electric guitar with loud, distorted abandon owes [him] a significant debt."

And once that song wraps up, well, DJ Rodriguez is only getting started.
