Almost exactly 20 years ago, on July 22nd, 1990, Thomas did a WREK “Sunday Special” on Guitar Roberts, aka Loren Mazzacane Connors (see Wikipedia entry and his website).  Thomas loved his sparse, atmospheric, bluesy meanderings, and listening to this makes for a serene and contemplative experience.

In a nice coincidence, old friends Andrew Burnes and Neel Murgai played with Connors just last month.  Andrew and Neel also hosted specialty shows on WREK, and in fact one of our future PeakeCast episodes will be of Thomas substituting for Andrew on his Strung Out guitar show …

Thomas contributes a minimum of chatter to this one.  Playlist is transcribed below.  Enjoy!
