From BVD: GE is a show designed to be your sidekick on a slacker Saturday night, when you’re in your fave comfy chair, in your candlelit listening room, perhaps bedecked in headphones, beverage topped off just right, and you’re ready to see where the magic carpet ride will get to tonight.
When we get a letter like this, we don’t care if there’s a check with it…
Love dem birdies!

…that we don’t play an artist this guy exposed/recorded/presented ~
Chris Strachwitz, the founder of Arhoolie Records, has passed away at the age of 91. He was a German-born American record label executive and record producer who founded Arhoolie Records in 1960, which became one of the leading labels recording and issuing blues, Cajun, norteo, and other forms of roots music from the United States and elsewhere in the world. Strachwitz devoted his life to collecting the ever-changing sounds of regional or vernacular music, first on 78 rpm records and later on tape as played in homes, backyards, front porches, and beer joints. He preserved songs that otherwise would have died along with their artists. Strachwitz died peacefully at home in Marin County, California, surrounded in his last days by dear friends and family.
