This week onboard the Mystery Train


FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 29, 2017
3:00 PM - 5:00 PM EDT

We’ll pay tribute to Daptones recording artist Charles Bradley, who died this past Saturday.
Bradley, who was first inspired to perform after seeing James Brown at The Apollo Theater,
didn’t release his first album until 2011, when he was 62. An emotional, incendiary performer –
he will be missed.

We will also be featuring new Tori Amos, David Rawlings and Gillian Welch, Waxahatchee,
Curtis Salgado, Otis Taylor, Shelby Lynne… and the usual mosh pit of covers, deep tracks and
surprises.
