The Bottomless Pit With Marshall Crenshaw For December 6

by Marshall Crenshaw
The Move

I have the blues over the death of Ian McLagan, one of the greatest rock musicians who ever breathed air. However, tonight's "The Bottomless Pit" at 10 is a "rerun anthology," assembled from parts of past shows, because I haven't had a spare minute during the last two weeks to do a new show. Late last night I thought of scrapping the "rerun anthology" and slapping together a quick Ian McLagan tribute, but instead I'll do a full show on him next week when I'll have the time to do it thoughtfully.

Meanwhile, tonight on the show I'll trace the history of the vibraphone and of The Move ... and a little bit more.

Vin Scelsa finds himself on a winding path on tonight's "Idiot's Delight"® at 8, an unpaved road strewn with tangential asides and deeper meditations. As his guides, Vin will bring along the passionate voices of Stevie Wonder, Annie Lennox and Joe South. He might even howl at the moon with Fiona Apple (pictured) or await December's first snowfall with Sufjan Stevens and Over The Rhine. Wherever Vin might go tonight on "Idiot's Delight,"® you know it's a journey you'll want to be on too.
