Baltimore-born Bill Frisell has been a jazz leader since the 1980s, melding various tones and styles with a willingness to explore the boundaries of the amplified guitar. Atlanta fans have followed him avidly since that time. His latest release on Okeh is called Guitar In The Space Age, and features his takes on rock-era classics like Pipeline, Tired of Waiting For You, and Telstar. WCLK PD Aaron Cohen is playing this one at various times, particularly during Serenade To The City Mon-Fri 10a-2p, so watch out for that whammy bar.
Bills pending in the current Georgia Legislature include several impacting sex trafficking, stalking, harassment and domestic violence. Georgia law covering these issues is woefully out of date in ways that cost lives annually. Is there bi-partisan support to change this session?
