Despite becoming a huge fan of Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings after seeing them in concert five years ago, I've never played their music on this show. It didn't really fit. Dave's Lounge is all about electronic music, and some of the Dap Kings have expressed their general distaste for making music alone with computers. (Though not necessarily the musicians who make that music.)
Still, Sharon Jones was a singular talent who played a small part in the life of me and my wife, and I couldn't let her passing go unmarked. There's a short tribute to her at the beginning of this show. I hope y'all enjoy it.
Tune in to Dave's Lounge every Sunday at 3:00 PM Eastern Time on WHUP-LP FM 104.7 in Hillsborough, or online at: http://whupfm.org/
