Show Notes

The harmonica master and singer with Canned Heat and Poncho Sanchez grew up in the musical hotbed of Downey, California, with Phil and Dave Alvin. Influenced early on by the Louis Jordan records of his trumpet-playing mother, he caught the blues bug hearing artists like the Paul Butterfield Band, Sonny Terry, and Brownie McGhee at the Ash Grove and the Golden Bear in L.A. Comfortable in a variety of musical settings, tonight Dale tests his tolerance level in a session with the Troubled Men.

Topics include baths vs. showers, the impending 200th episode, a borrowed book, Michael Tisserand, a student worker, a Bob Dylan show, tainted cupcakes, sailing from Pongo-Pongo, Bud Ferillo, the Coach House, the Vietnam draft, evading the FBI, going country, Lon Price, Duke Burrell, a Jazz Fest gig, moving to New Orleans, meeting Fito De La Parra, Larry Taylor, a music cruise, psychedelics, and much more.

Intro music: Styler/Coman

Break music: “You’re The One” by The Little Elmore Reed Blues Band featuring Dale Spalding

Outro music: “Early In The Mornin’” from “Latin Spirits” by Poncho Sanchez
