Our first show in March represents a look back at all of the amazing musicians who left this mortal coil last year. We are all aware of such luminaries as David Bowie, Merle Haggard, Leonard Cohen, John Berry, Maurice White, George Michael, Paul Kanter, Glenn Frey, Paul Bley, Sir George Martin, Nicholas Caldwell, Red Simpson, Phyfe Dawg, Bernie Worrell, Keith Emerson, Alan Vega, John Thurman Hunter jr, Pete Burns, and Prince who passed away last year far before their time. This show will address many musicians who made a contribution to music but are not the proverbial household names. Our goal is to dig deep and think about the session players, background singers, and talented players who are all too often overlooked.
Unfortunately, we lost several individuals involved in music and at Your Tuesday Afternoon Alternative we wanted to spend a few hours remembering and celebrating the many contributors to music that we lost. 2016 was also a tough year on many individuals who contributed indirectly to some amazing music projects such as Robert Balser who was the animation director for The Beatles’ Yellow Submarine.
Tom Gilliam of Ghost Town Silence, Daytongram, and an exceptional musician joins Dr. J as we reflect on the musicians who have transitioned and celebrate the music across genres. Tom is a frequent contributor on the show and we welcome his insight into reflecting on those we have lost in 2016.
So, join Dr. J and Tom Gilliam on March 7th as we take time to remember those we lost in 2016.
