Bolin Radio Special

Tommy Bolin fans will be interested in a two hour radio special on the man and his music coming soon.

Johnnie Bolin

It is the work of Denise Faithful and 102.7 FM KYGT Radio in Idaho Springs, Colorado, who have put together a commercial free radio documentary on the guitarist. Contributions come from Kenny Passarelli, Stanley Sheldon, Johnnie Bolin, Glenn Hughes and additional guests are promised. The show goes out on Friday February 6th, from 10:00am -1:00pm Central Standard Time (US).  But you can listen in on the web for free by using the link below (maybe go the the station site first for more details).  Thanks to Trace Keane, who also sent us the photo above of Kenny and Johnnie during the recording.

    Listening now to Stanley Sheldon so I missed most of it. Hopefully someone was able to record it.

    Rennaissance was a good band. I still have a few of their albums. I wonder if they may have had some influence on RB?

      I saw them once back in the day, supporting Jan Akkerman’s first solo tour (the guy from Focus) I think it was (must try and find my souvenir programme). They were pretty good. I’m pretty sure Ritchie has mentioned them in the past. Jan was a disappointment.

    Hi Simon

    I recently bought Canned Heat live cd Europe 1970. After somewhat disappointing set, vocalist Bob Hite thanked the other bands on the bill – Rennaissance and Deep Purple. Any clues on when in 1970 and which tour Thanks Dave Hobbs New Ash Green, Kent.

      This was Deep Purple supporting Canned Heat at the Royal Albert Hall in 1970. The Heat recording turned up a couple of years ago and we did try and suggest people look to see who did it and whether they taped the rest of the bill too! Shame the Heat set isn’t good, I really like their Livin’ The Blues double LP (and curse the day I decided to cover the gatefold sleeve in clear film as a kid!).
