Programming Notes From All Over

The Lemon Twigs -- i.e., the rock star kids of my old bandmate Ronnie D'Addario (it is he who sings the divine harmonies on the Floor Models "Letter From Liverpool") -- are the musical guests on tonight's Late Show With Stephen Colbert.

This, of course, is yet another reason to watch Colbert ce soir (the first being to enjoy his making merciless fun of whatever stupid thing President Money Boo Boo did or said today).

In any case, I hate those two kids, for obvious reasons, but that said -- the last time they were on TV (with Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show, a couple of months ago) they were using the restored 1961 Fender Bassman amp I gave them on permanent loan...

...and perhaps they will be using it tonight as well. Look for it, won't you?

Hey -- I'll take any bit of reflected glory I can get.

Wow_ what an amp!! If I only had some of the gear of yesteryear..

I think the Beatles used an amp like this on some of Revolver, Rubber Soul..(for guitar too)

Stones used them on lots of early TV appearances. Most of the other Brit Invasion bands used Vox.
