A triple-birthday week (and a new single) for The Fleshtones and a revelation from The Junior League.
Otis Redding’s woulda-been 80th, the 40th of the Hoodoo Gurus and “Genius of Love” … and the 20th of that day.
Surf’s up, um hmmmm … a perfect way to end a weird traditional summer season. New/old Beach Boys and live Marshall Crenshaw and more.
Don and Charlie and some others departed and still with us.

Many milestones: RIP Joey D’Ambrosio, the last of Bill Haley’s original Comets; Ronnie Spector’s 77th; and the anniversary of Art Kane’s “Harlem 1958” on the occasion of NYC’s dedication of the block. Also, the heaviest heavy metal song ever recorded.
New Los Lobos, new old Beach Boys, lotsa new Rum Bar releases, and farewells to Dusty Hill and Paul Cotton.
