Jimi Hendrix at 80 and Airport People On Echoes This Weekend.
Jimi Hendrix would’ve turned 80 this past November 27th. We celebrate by talking to Eddie Kramer, producer and engineer of Hendrix’s first three albums and many of the posthumous releases as well as John McDermott, Hendrix curator for Experience Hendrix and author of several books on the legendary guitarist. We talk about the new release, The Jimi Hendrix Experience: Los Angeles Forum, April 26, 1969, a tour de force of the Experience’s live performance near their peak. Hear on Echoes.
We talk with Airport People. It’s not the many travelers suffering with airlines delays, but ambient chamber music artist Leon Todd Johnson. He’s released an album of creaky-piano-centered compositions called From Nine Mornings. But he’s also a child of the Civil Rights Movement. John Diliberto talks in the waiting lounge with Airport People on Echoes.
