  • Tribute To Hilly Kristal & CBGB's on KVMR-FM

    This Monday, Sept. 3 (Labor Day), I will be doing a tribute to Hilly Kristal on my radio show "Jimmi Accardi's Rock & Roll Party" on KVMR-FM. Hilly was 75 and passed away a few days ago from lung cancer.

    He was the owner of the famous New York nightclub CBGBs, and gave my band ("The Laughing Dogs") a place to play our original songs, as well as so many other bands in the 70s and 80s. After playing at CBGBs, The Laughing Dogs went on to release two albums on Columbia Records.

    Other bands who got their start at CBGB's include Blondie, the Ramones, Talking Heads, Television, Patti Smith, and many more.

    I'll be playing stuff from the "Live @ CBGBs" album as well as cuts from other bands who got their start at CBGB's.  

    The show is from 2-4 pm Pacific time at http://www.kvmr.org - Just go there and press "Listen Live" if you want to hear the show. (I've heard that this kind of streaming audio works best with "WinAmp".)

    If you have comments or stories to share, feel free to call in - the studio line is 1-530-265-9555.
