Before leaving on his summer holidays, Vin Scelsa set aside a few "Idiot's Delight"® shows that never received a proper on-air broadcast, for one reason or another. On tonight's encore presentation at 8, Vin resurrects his Easter Saturday show of this year, bumped off of WFUV due to the holiday Mass. That show focused entirely on various versions, stretching from iterations to tangents, of "Just Like Tom Thumb's Blues" and it featured Bob Dylan, Nina Simone, Bryan Ferry, David Poe and others lost in the rain in Juarez around Easter time. Vin Scelsa returns from his fishin' break next Saturday, July 19, with a brand new show.
That's Vin Scelsa's "Idiot's Delight"®, Saturdays from 8-10 p.m. on 90.7FM, also streaming online.
If you miss tonight's show, you can find "Idiot's Delight"® in the FUV archives for two weeks after broadcast.
