This week on The South Side, you'll hear tracks from New Orleans Rhythm & Blues storyteller Earl King, who was a driving force in the Crescent City music scene for over forty years. It's also the birthday of great King Curtis, soulful saxman who played on sessions from everyone from Buddy Holly and Duane Allman to Aretha.
Often, when an artist is featured on The South Side, that week's playlist on the show website at www.thesouthside.org features a collection of links, and dozens are archived here.
Tune in to The South Side each Friday night from 7 to 10pm Pacific for a solid mix of blues, soul, R & B, Funk and more with your host, Chas Lewis.
And every week following The South Side, it's two hours of Frank Zappa on "Zen Through Zappa" with Scatch.

Straight outta Portland, crazy mofos The Moonshine will swing by the KHUM studios this afternoon to favor us with a few tunes.
Shimmering vocals and autoharp! add to the appeal. Don't miss them live on KHUM 3-4ish.

UPDATE 3:13 - He's been described as a "pagan voodoo cultist," but it's looking like Greacen's assertion might have legal traction. Potential violations include the Endangered Species Act (if certain species were present), pollution, and alteration of stream bed, bank or channel.
So it looks like the riverbar is not a legal no-man's land after all, and the potential fines are pricey. That song is enormously catchy, but is it catchy enough to keep Mendo's Fish & Wildlife people from acting?
[Also, it says here even off-roaders need to buckle up. Borrrring.]
UPDATE 12:30 - It seems to be the Eel. Lost Coast Outpost's Andrew Goff did some sleuthing. More info coming.
Ukiah-born McKenna Faith's latest video shows a good 'ol time being had on a riverbar in Cali-plated trucks. It's been alleged (very loosely, and anonymously at that) that the video was shot on the banks of our Eel River.
Joyless, America-hating Friends Of The Eel honcho Scott Greacen tells KHUM that while it's unlikely any salmon eggs were crushed during the making of the video, getting one's truck stuck in the river "does no favors to the fish." Also, the river has it hard enough.
That said, Greacen could not confirm that the video in question was shot on the Eel. Listen to his depraved screed below.

The Canadian musician Grimes makes mostly reasonable backstage requests, according to her Tumblr. Her needs are modest and green.
For instance, she's not a fan of single-use cutlery. And we all know that styrofoam's no good. And keep those water bottles out of her way.
Now just imagine her and her whole posse, prowling around backstage with Kleen Kanteens.
She does makes one semi-crazy request.
