Every week I get together with an affable fellow named Josh Kerns, an aging punk who insists that I'm an aging hipster. Every week, we invite a few musicians and personalities from the local music community to chat with us, and the results are broadcast over the airwaves at 3 p.m. on Sunday afternoons on 97.3 KIRO FM. This week, we've got a handful of guests:
-- Cindy Blackman-Santana: The former Lenny Kravitz drummer who now plays drums (and house) with Santana, was kind enough to come on the show and chat about Spectrum Road, her new band with Jack Bruce (Cream) and Vernon Reid (Living Colour), and John Medeski (Medeski, Martin & Wood) that celebrates the music of Tony Williams (Miles Davis, Lifetime, etc.). The band's at Jazz Alley June 21 to 24.
-- Alan White: The Eastside resident -- and longtime YES drummer -- played drums on John Lennon's "Imagine" when he was 20. He talks about it. I talk about why I've never liked "Imagine."
-- Vicci Martinez: Josh interviewed Ms. Martinez about her new record, her time on The Voice, and all things Cee Lo Green.
