Sunday nights from 10p to midnight, WZLX-FM and wzlx.com present "The Decibel Diaries" with Carter Alan. Digging through his vast radio archives of interviews, this week Carter unearths two classic conversations with guitarist Jay Geils in 2009 and 2010. Geils passed away in April 2017, one of the many high-profile musicians who have moved on to a better place in the past five years. Jay Geils was a guitarist and star in the J. Geils Band, but the interviews reveal him to be jazz cat and bluesman at heart.
Also on the show this week, music from perhaps the Jimi Hendrix Experience's best live gig ever. It happened on February 24, 1969 at the Royal Albert Hall and it would be the final time the Experience ever played the U.K. When Hendrix returned to perform at the massive 1970 Isle of Wight Festival, it was with a different lineup of musicians. 50 years ago at the Royal Albert Hall, Hendrix was taping and filming for a live album, so the musicians were spot on and the recording pristine!
Plus, its unplugged music from Foreigner and a backstage chat with Mick Jones and Lou Gramm at Great Woods in Mansfield, MA in 1999. That's a full show! See you Sunday night at 10pm!
