Today we lead in with uncontested rock legends Blue Oyster Cult who are back with the new record. And then, James Williamson of the Stooges and Deniz Tek of Radio Birdman join forces. Phil May passed away earlier this year, but prior to that, he recorded an album with Pretty Things and that album is out now. Nick Lowe joins forces with Los Straitjackets and Paul Kelly is with Paul Grabowsky. Slim Dunlap’s live recordings surface and we check one of the tracks. We pay respects to Justin Townes Earle who passed away on August 20th this year.
