Playing tracks by
Bill Withers, Roy Head, Van Halen, Tower of Power, Bobby Lewis and more.
This show was 5th in the global classic rock chart, 18th in the global afrobeat chart, 67th in the global funk chart and 100th in the global jazz chart.
2020 mercilessly took away some of our greatest musicians, actors, comedians, athletes, journalists, and politicians, and this mix is a tribute to 68 of these noteworthy individuals. While the music runs the gamut of funk, soul, reggae, Afrobeat, jazz, prog, rock, folk, and bluegrass, I always tried to pick a soulful song. Unfortunately, time wouldn't permit me to recognize every notable figure who passed away in 2020, but I hope this mix will inspire you to dig into the work of the many who are honored here. May they rest in peace.
Thanks to @christhebarker for the inspired cover design.
