What if you recorded an album, and then never released it? What if 30 years later, someone handed you the master tapes and said, “this is good, you should do something with it.”? Well, Climbadonkey went from on the rise, to broken up back in the 1970s in Baltimore, leaving behind a full album recording that was never released.

Tim Tilghman, host of WLOY’s Radio RockonTour (Tuesdays noon-2pm), met up with Denny Laine (bassist for The Moody Blues, Wings, Ginger Baker’s Air Force and more) at his concert with The Cryers in Harrisburg, PA on Saturday May 18, 2013. Denny sang the Moody Blues first big hit “Go Now”, not a bad career opening act!

Walter Parks, solo artist, guitarist for the now-late Richie Havens, leader of Swamp Cabbage, and all around nice guy stopped by the station finally. We’ve only been trying to make that happen for 4 years… It seemed that something always came up when we tried to make it work so when we finally got the stars to align, I wasn’t going to let him leave after a few questions. Fortunately Walter (and his lovely wife Margo) stuck around for over an hour playing and talking.

Woody Lissauer stopped by to chat and play some of his songs with DJ Chris Sweeney. Just ignore the bonus echo effect on the discussion… Woody routed everything through his pedal systems and it created an interesting effect on their chat. On the plus side the music sounds great!
