The Mal Thursday Show #156: The Music Machine Story

Mal Thursday welcomes lead guitarist, race car driver, and Emmy-winning make-up artist Mark Landon to tell “The Music Machine Story,” the true tale of the L.A.-based ’60s band led by the late Sean Bonniwell, featuring future Grammy-winning Hall of Fame producer Keith Olsen on bass, Doug Rhodes on organ, and Ron Edgar on the drums. It’s essential rock n’ roll oral history, heavy on the fuzz guitar. Presented in Living Monophonic and Ultrasonic Stereophonic Sound. Originally broadcast 9 May 2019.

The Mal Thursday Show #82: Revisiting LOVE with Johnny Echols

Revisiting LOVE

Mal is joined by Johnny Echols, lead guitarist of the legendary Los Angeles-based ’60s band LOVE. Johnny is touring the U.K. in late June and early July 2016 with LOVE Revisited (tour dates below), the same band that teamed with LOVE main man Arthur Lee on his triumphant comeback shows in the late ’90s and early aughts. Johnny cherry-picks his favorite tracks (spoiler alert: usually the ones with extended guitar solos) from the band’s classic 1966-67 period on Elektra Records, and lays some essential oral history on you in the process. Songs by Arthur Lee, Bryan Maclean, Bacharach-David. Guitar by Johnny Echols.
