David Byrne: March Radio Playlist
Well, mostly. There are a few older tracks in here...but even those hold up pretty well. We mourn the recent loss of inspirational figures - Sophie and Johnny Pacheco. (Neither on this playlist, but featured on many previous playlists). Also, Sylvain Sylvain, James Purify, Mary Wilson, Chick Corea. If nothing else, this playlist shows that music creation is alive and vibrant. Whether many of these folks are making a living from their work these days - with no live shows for over a year- is a big question….at least Save Our Stages passed as part of the Covid relief bill, so that’s a start.
Some amazing songs, innovation, and heart here...hope you are moved by some of it.
