Mulligan Stew Jan 6th 2024-Looking back and forward Plus Celebrating THE FLYING V

We hope you all had a memorable and warm Christmas/New Years season.

The first show of 2024 will celebrate several careers & salute a true rock guitar. Gibson’s Flying V


First is Les McCann who passed Dec 29.

Les kicked down the walls of jazz and opened it up to a whole new audience

He started a groove movement with one great single Compared to What?   An anti-war song you could dance to.

He was much more than one song. Discover him for yourself.

The second career we salute is Lou Rawls who closes the show singing harmony with his pal Sam Cooke.


Our two RAM monthly donors contributed to the mix.

One wanted Jimmy Smith’s Walk on the Wild Side, which I gladly played,  followed by Tower of Power and a newly discovered Squibcakes and the second RAM requested In My Life.  Johnny Cash did the honours.


New music from Arkells, Willy and Keith, Allison Russell, Matt Anderson, Taj, Bruce Springsteen, Celeigh Cardinal, Devin Cuddy & Corb.

A donor birthday double shot of U2(with BB King) and The Hip.

AND THEN – To celebrate the launch of Gibson’s Flying V Guitar on Jan 6 1958

With the email help of Collin Cripps from The Cuddy Band & Blue Rodeo I got a crash course in who played the Flying V over the years.

Albert King played an original 1958  Flying V  throughout his career, as did Lonnie Mack.

The Flying V was also played by Jimi, Keith Richards, Eddie Van Halen,  Slash, Joe Bonamassa, Tom Petty, David GoGo and in the early 70s Neil Young.

An original Flying V now is worth at least half a million. More if it’s in the original case and they both look good.


Joining in the celebration

Albert King –  Crosscut Saw

Lonnie Mack –  Memphis

Neil Young – Southern Man

HEADS UP – Next week’s very special guest is Drummer and Legend Russ Kunkel. Currently a member of The Immediate Family. (the documentary is screening now)

The new album coming out Feb 16  Skin in the Game.

Working and touring with Cat Stevens, Joni, Linda Ronstadt, Lyle Lovett,  Neil Young, Bahamas, Dylan Graham Nash, David Crosby, Emmylou Harris, Dolly Parton and Linda Ronstadt, BB King, Bill Withers, Aaron Neville, Warren Zevon, The Derek Trucks Band, Rod Stewart, Steven Stills, Joe Cocker, CSN, JJ Cale, Jimmy Buffett, Bonnie Raitt, Tony Bennett ……… and he’s on the next Dylan Album. Coming later this year.
