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.

WCLK PD Aaron Cohen is giving this one some spins, particularly during Serenade To The City, Mon-Fri nights 10p-2a.
