This show originally aired 2/25/13. Listen Up! pays tribute to Kevin Ayers who passed away last week. As a founding member of Soft Machine , Ayers was a key figure in the birth of British pastoral psychedelia that emerged from the Canterbury scene , and then went on to enjoy cult status with a solo career in the late 1960s and early 70s.
The British DJ John Peel , an ardent fan, famously declared that "Kevin Ayers' talent is so acute that you could perform major eye surgery with it."
We will hear selections from his much loved recordings and collaborations.
