Tonight's "The Bottomless Pit" at 10 is a little complicated. Near the end of last year I did an interview with writer Joe Bosso for an online publication, Musicradar. Joe asked me to name and discuss what I thought were "10 Essential Guitar Albums." They regularly ask people to address this question; it's a recurring feature in the magazine (e-zine?) Anyway, I love this kind of stuff.

Unfortunately, Vin Scelsa is feeing under the weather on this early spring Saturday. So on tonight's "Idiot's Delight"® at 8, I'll be minding Vin's show with a globetrotting mix of music that I hope he might enjoy (with a bowl of chicken soup), including Samaris (pictured), Juana Molina, Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash, Kevin Drew, Tiny Ruins and Esperanza Spalding.

Since tomorrow is International Pillow Fight Day, we want to know what four artists you would invite to your imaginary slumber party. Who would you want to stay up late with, eating popcorn and spinning records? Leave your artist list in the comments below and we'll choose one set to spin after 9am.

Here's what we played this morning:

"Burning Up" - Madonna

"Raspberry Beret" - Prince

"Brown Sugar" - The Rolling Stones (Mick Jagger)

Milagres - FUV Live - 2014

by Alisa Ali

The latest release from the Brooklyn-based Milagres is called Violent Light and it finds the band refining its icy synthpop sound. There are hints of '80s-era Roxy Music and David Bowie and the songs have a lush, majestic feel to them. The band stops by Studio A to play us some of their new songs and talk about the new record.
