About the show
Playing tracks by

Clam Radio pays tribute to the late Walter Becker (one half of the songwriting team collectively known as Steely Dan). This addition of Clam Radio (in four parts) attempts to clarify Becker's role in defining the sound of Steely Dan. We focus on his two solo CDs, "11 Tracks Of Whack" and "Circus Money" as well as his guitar soloing and productions and co-writes outside of Steely Dan. Along with composer, keyboardist, and vocalist Donald Fagen, Mr. Becker has created a body of musical work that has contributed to the development of American popular music in the 20th century. Walter Becker passed away September, 3, 2017. He was 67 years old.
This is part 1 of 4. Originally aired 9/14/17 on WUSB 90.1FM, Stony Brook University, NY.
