#1644: Lucky Man

The late Greg Lake wrote the song “Lucky Man” when he was 12 years old, about a man at the end of his life that was mourned by many. 2016 has been a hell of a year for that kind of story, and this last stretch has seen many creative lives cut short.

On today’s show I pay tribute to Lake and others, with a nod to the closing of long-running art spaces GLOB and Rhinoceropolis in Denver where I was lucky enough to spend some of my younger days rocking out and getting weird. Much like my younger self, this set starts out smooth and then gets real loud and rowdy.

As the world grows a little scarier, please take some time with me to soothe your nerves and then get them raw and ready for action again with one hell of a show.
