Alex Chilton: A Tribute to His Music

1950-2010

Steve di Costanzo and Radio Base Camp on WPKN in Bridgeport, CT

with audio samples including those from Ed Ward’s NPR broadcast

 

Alex Chilton fused his Memphis roots with the British Invasion sound.  A wonderful songwriter and musician, Chilton will be best remembered for his days in The Box Tops and Big Star.  Beyond these two groups he also recorded many solo efforts and produced several things for The Cramps.  His impact on many bands far outweighs his modest name recognition by the music masses.  He was one of my favorite, cult heroes in music.

Show: Radio Base Camp-Late Night

 

*UPDATE*- as of 1/1/2013 hear Radio Base Camp at its new time:  Every Tuesday morning from 7am to 9am.

Hosted by Steve di Costanzo, this 'late night' companion to Radio Base Camp hits some familiar genres of music from the early 1960's to the mid-70's such as psychedelic, surf, rock, garage, mod, folk and beyond. The "late night" allows for a bit more latitiude, longer tracks, less FCC oversight and keeps my night owls and day trippers entertained.

Show Dates/Times:  2nd and 4th Monday Nights from 11pm to 2:00am

** MIDNIGHT MADNESS: Steve's look at his favorite New Music/New Bands at 12 midnight every show.
