Boscoe came up in Chicago’s South Side in the late '60s and early '70s, with this self-titled release springing forth in 1973. The group’s lineup included James Rice on guitar, Ron Harris on bass, Harold Warner on trumpet, Darryl Johnson on sax, and Reg Holden on trombone. Boscoe also featured Steve Cobb on drums, and it was Cobb who drove the group's movement beyond covers to original songs with socially conscious lyrics. Boscoe’s conscious-funk-fusion sound was somewhat lost in the immense sea of talent pouring out of South Side Chicago at the time, and the group folded not long after this release.
DJ Dug Deep hosts New Orleans-born, Texas-raised musician, troubadour, and singer/songwriter Bruce Salmon live in the KDRT studios, Friday, September 25, 2:30-3:30 p.m. A veteran of the Austin music scene, Bruce began performing as a solo artist in 2012, releasing his first solo album A Barrel of Monkeys in 2014. His music is steeped in the Texas songwriting tradition; New Orleans jazz, funk, and blues; and more recent studies of ancestral folk music from Eastern Europe. Tune in and enjoy!
This week we'll feature Cincinatti's own Ass Ponys and the 2001 recording Lohio. If you haven't heard of the Ponys, you may have heard of frontman Chuck Cleaver and his current band, Wussy. All new to you? No worries. Sit back and enjoy. It's indie rock with an Americana feel--swell sounds for a summer day.
